The fledgling German manufacturer managed to hit the ground running by using a chassis supplied by British specialists GRD, fitted with bespoke bodywork designed by Achim Storz. As GRD folded during 1974, TOJ had to really step up to the plate to build a competitive replacement for the SS02 raced during the company's debut year.

While still receiving some support from GRD founder Jo Marquart, the small German manufacturer set about creating a new car for the 1975 season. It was dubbed the SC03, and was a further evolution of the BMW-engined SS02. Once again, Storz was responsible for the bodywork, which now featured a tall air-box. The twin-boom rear wing mounts were not quite as pronounced as they had been on the SS02. Carried over from the 1974 were the BMW engine and the striking Warsteiner livery.

Early in the 1975 season, Swiss racer Paul Keller drove the SC03 to a first victory in a local event. It was then also raced by Keller and Obermoser in the World Championship round at the Nürburgring but a driveshaft failure thwarted their effort. International success finally came at the Brands Hatch round of the European 2-Litre Championship were Obermoser scored an outright victory beating the likes of Chevron and Lola. He also won one of the two heats at the Hockenheimring, while Keller scored another local victory.

For the 1976 season, the SC03s were replaced by the SC204. The two SC03s were sold to privateers and at least one is known to have survived.
