In 2006 werd the car was race prepared by Rae Davis for the Goodwood Fordwater Trophy, where Michele Tommasi qualified 3rd against much more powerful cars. Tommasi ended this race in the gravel pit after a great tussle in the front of the field.
The Sprite was regularly raced ever since and was purchased by the current owner in 2013.
