The record books tell the story, however, with drivers Matt Neal,Dan Eaves and latterly Gareth Howell sharing a record-breaking seasonwrappingup the Drivers, Teams, Independent Teams and Independent Drivers championship making it one of the most successful debut seasons of any team in modern BTCC history. In fact, the only trophy they didnt win that year the manufacturers they were not eligible for!Team Halfords' driver Dan Eaves became the first driver in the history of the BTCCto win three races in a day at Thruxton on May the 1st, the 29 year old was the class of the field as he guided his Honda Integra to victory in each of the days races despite having started virtually at the back of the reversed grid for Race 3. The car we are offering today is that Dan Eaves car #TD-02.Now painted Pink and Black, TD-02was campaigned during the 2006 BTCCby the experienced Dave Pinkney with the car run by Motorbase Performance.#TD-02was purchased by our vendor in late 2016 with a view to competing in HSCC Super Touring Cars in 2017 and subsequently the expanded Super Touring Car Challenge in 2018. It was immediately fully rebuilt and subject to a top-to-toe extensive overhaul which includeda new Neil Brown BTCC engine (as original) and fully refurbished X-Trac gearbox(over 44,000). No expense was spared returning the car to 100% race-ready and refinishing it in Dan Eaves, Team Halfords' colours with all the appropriate graphics. Having had two enjoyable seasons racing as a father and son team, our vendor has found that he no longer has the time to devote to this and is reluctantly offering the car for sale.It's accompanied by theBTCC Technical Logbook and HSCC Identity Form confirming it qualifies for Super Touring Car Challenge, Class ST4. A full spec sheet and details of the cars rebuild areavailable at our Documents Desk and we understand that three additional sets of refurbed wheels and tyres anda selection of spares are availablefor sale separately.
