Prior to the 1999 season, a man named Richard Austin bought out the Harrier company from Lester Ray. Due to the contractual obligation of the Harrier being owned by Ford and only leased, the name would be changed to Sintura (An anagram for R.Austin). The first and only car born out of this venture was the Sintura S99 GT1. Designed in-house by Phil Bourne and built on a Lola made Composite Chassis Tub, the car featured push-rod suspension and a 4 Liter Judd GV4 V10, which revs to 11,000 RPMs and produces 700 Horsepower (200 more then the Harrier it replaced), while connected to a Lola six-speed sequential Gearbox. While the car only had one whole season of competition, the car produced some positive results, including 2 poles and completing
5 of the 8 races it entered (with four podiums, including a win in at Round 8 of the Britsh GT Championship at Silverstone). Including this car in GT would add the Sintura Name to the series as well as one of the more obscure GT1 cars from 1999.
