Following on its coat-tails was the T332 introduced the following year. The car was not needed, as the prior model had done so well, but it did bring several important improvements. These modifications resulted in the UK and US Series Championship for 1974, the Tasman and US Series in 1975, and the US Series in 1976. When the Can-Am series was introduced, it ran rather well in that series along side its purpose-built variant, the T333.
