Although completed in 1984, this Tiga was not raced until the 1985 season, when it was fielded by Spice Engineering as the Spice-Tiga GC85 Cosworth. Driven by Gordon Spice and Ray Bellm, it was the car used to the Group C2 class win at Le Mans and the World Championship. After its hugely successful debut season, chassis 279 was sold on to Kelmar Racing from Italy. They continued to campaign the car through to the 1988 season, with a final outing at Monza in April of 1988.

Following its retirement from contemporary racing, it was bought back by Tiga Race Cars. Quite possibly the most successful of all Tiga, it was later acquired by company founder Howden Ganley. In 1999, he sold the car to Brunn Racing in Germany. Ahead of the 2015 season, it was comprehensively restored by Brunn Racing to compete in the Historic Group C Championship. Fittingly, it debuted with Philipp Brunn at the wheel, scoring a class victory and finishing third overall.
