“Super Touring” was a motor racing formula for saloon cars defined by the FIA in 1993 and was broadly based on the 2-litre Touring Car regulations from the 1990 British Touring Car Championship. The FIA organised a World Cup from 1993-1995 and the term 'Super Tourer' was adopted from 1995. 'Super Touring' replaced 'Group A' as the pinnacle of saloon car championships around the world, but as the manufacturer's 'Works' teams gradually withdrew, the category sadly ended in 2000. It is believed that the late, great David Leslie drove this Honda Accord Supertourer throughout the 1996 British Touring Car Championship season. David had a strong season with the car finishing fourth overall in the Driver's Championship and he enjoyed three outright wins in a very competitive year, with the most notable coming at the British Grand Prix support race. Following that season, we understand the car won the 1997 Moscow Open Championship and came back to race in UK club championships in the early 2000s. In 2009, the car competed in the David Leslie Memorial Trophy, resulting in a P1 and P2, and was then in the top 10 shoot out at the world famous 2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed. From 2013 onwards, the car has appeared in various races in the ever popular and fast growing Super Touring Series, part of the HSCC package. Two wins at Thruxton in the 2013 season were recorded as well as a win at the 2015 Donington Park race. More recently the car was raced at the Knockhill round of the 2016 Super Touring car championship by touring car legend, Gabriele Tarquini, and he demonstrated that he had lost none of his famous car control by taking two outright wins in a very competitive field. This car is presented exactly as it finished the last race of the 2016 season as the overall winner. If driving a proper Touring Car is on your 'bucket list', then this is a superb opportunity to buy a race winning car that will give you instant access to one of the most exciting series in the UK historic racing car calendar. Included with the car is a comprehensive spares package and running and set-up info, all of which is too long to list here, and interested parties should get in touch to get a full list of what’s available.
