All though they've been gone a while it still smarts a little to see the book finally close.

In the day one of the best teams on the BTCC grid; a lessen to all: take nothing for granted in motorsport. Every sponsor is worth their weight in gold.

A great BTCC team! As a foreign fan of the BTCC I always connect this team to the figure of Ian Harrison. Without him I fear it hasn't been the same...

They have done history with Vauxhall and it's nice that also an italian - Giovanardi - has been part of all this

Just a shame it ended

to me 888 were ian harrison running vauxhalls, the last few years has seen them remain as a name only. there is a few of their cars surviving like the cav and vectra with cleland, one of the s2000 vectras is also preserved, think a couple of astras also

Shame to read this. At least Triple Eight lives on in sorts with their former Australian Supercar arm Triple Eight Race Engineering.

There was something said to that effect. Mind you, lots of things are said. This would seem to have been fantasy not reality.

Unless of course he's forming a new company with 888 in the name?

Was it ever known which Japanese manufacture they were trying to woo?

Since Nissan, Toyota, Mazda and Honda were already represented around that time, did they set up with a view to taking the contract off another team's hands or were they aiming to bring another brand to the grid?

I'd wager either Nissan (tried to win the contract from RouseSport but lost out to RML) or Toyota (expected them to continue into 1997 but didn't)

Could have been Honda, given Derek Warwick's ties with them as a dealer.

Honda was the rumoured at the time. Honda switched from MSD to Prodrive the same year that 888 got the Vauxhall gig.
