As a 935/77 customer car, this car was delivered new to Georg Loos' Gelo Racing Team as 930 770 0911. The German team raced the car extensively in the DRM series and also at Le Mans during the 1977 season. Rolf Stommelen won at the Nürburgring at the penultimate outing with the Gelo team. Before the end of the year, it was sold to Italy and it won the Vallelunga 6 Hours late in October. During the 1978 and 1979 seasons, it was raced on both sides of the Atlantic by the famous Jolly Club team. Halfway through the 1979 season, it was sold to the Racing Associates team and driven to victory in the Daytona 250 Miles by Hurley Haywood and Charles Mendez. Its final outing in its original guise came at the 1979 Daytona Finale where Mendez finished third, this time with Brian Redman as his co-driver.

Over the next winter the car was rebuilt to full 935 K3 specifications and accordingly the Kremer chassis number of 009 0005 was added. It was then campaigned in Coca Cola livery by Bob Akin and a choice of co-drivers with limited success. Sold to the Cooke-Woods team for 1981, it was then driven to a second place finish at the Sebring 12 Hours by Roy Woods, Ralph Kent-Cooke and Skeeter McKitterick. The team raced the car just twice in 1982 when it finished fifth overall at Le Mans wearing BP colours. Its racing career continued well into the mid-1980s and at one point, it was converted back to a Group 4 specification for homologation reasons.

Following its contemporary racing it remained in the United States for many years before it joined the stable of a French historic racer. After campaigning the car for several years in the Coca Cola colours used during the 1980 season, it was re-painted by specialists Equipe Europe to the striking blue with gold and red accents as used by the Cooke-Woods team to finish second overall at Sebring in 1981.
