British teams back then certainly liked the idea of their racing numbers being on the rear quarter panels didn't they (going by the John West Alfa on the previous page, and of course the ICS Rovers and Sierra's)

Abit more to this car, when it was sold to "The Toy Shop" prior to the end of the 1985 ATCC, it was painted plain white, and used by Greg Hansford at the Oran Park ATCC finale. It was then driven by Allan Grice a few weeks later at the first Endurance Series race, the "Better Brakes 300" at Amaroo Park. Bond also borrowed the car back for the Adelaide AGP support race at the end of 1985, as the Luigi car had been written off the weekend before at Surfers as mentioned.
