Team Halfords

After two unsuccessful seasons of running the BTC-T Peugeot 406 Coupe, Team Halfords took the decision to switch to the Peugeot 307. Designed by renowned Formula One designer Sergio Rinland, the 307 was the second BTC Touring spec car built by the Coventry-based firm. Two cars were built, and both appeared for the first rounds of 2003 at Mondello Park, initially driven by Dan Eaves and Carl Breeze, although Breeze was replaced by Daniel Buxton halfway through the season. The 307 struggled at the start of the season, but became slightly more competitive as the season went on, Eaves eventually finishing 4th in the Independents championship. However, in 2004, Eaves moved to Team Dynamics, taking the Halfords sponsorship with him.

Later career

Initially unused in 2004, one of the cars was used by Richard Marsh in round 8 and 9, after struggling in a Super 2000-spec Honda Civic. The car did not reappear again in 2005, but in 2006, Marsh once again drove the car, this time for Team Far├ęcla in the last 4 rounds of the championship. Marsh was plagued by problems in the underdeveloped 307, suffering many mechanical issues that prevented him from finishing races, or even starting them. The car did not appear again in 2007.
