After enjoying success with a MK1 Golf GTI, Demon Tweeks’ founder Alan Minshaw built a Mk2 at Demon Tweeks using an Andy Rouse built bodyshell and an engine by VW engine wizard Brian Ricketts of B.R. Motorsport. The distinctive red and yellow Golf made its debut at the Silverstone RAC Tourist Trophy race of September 1985 with an 8-valve engine where Minshaw, with fellow Brit Tony Hill and Kiwi Art Markus, finished 7th in class. A 16-valve unit was fitted the following year which improved competitiveness considerably and Minshaw, sharing with Vic Lee, won Class C in Round 10 of the 1987 BTCC at Oulton Park on 22nd August.
