The Daytona, which the factory never had an intention to campaign, was raced with success by a number of privateers.

This particular example was campaigned during the 1972 racing season. It was ordered by Ferrari dealer Gordon Tatum and delivered though Luigi Chinetti with the intention of competing at Sebring. It was purchased by Tatum on behalf of his client, Gregory Richter. However, when it arrived stateside, it was never delivered to Richter and instead kept by Tatum, who began additional preparation for competition.

When Richter found out the car was on U.S. soil and had been retained by Tatum for his own use in racing, he took Tatum to court over his undelivered Daytona. Due to legal proceedings, the car never saw a day on the track.

Out of the 1,383 examples built by the time Daytona production had concluded, only 15 examples were prepared for competition within three different series by the factory. An additional nine cars were recognized as being converted for competition in period.

Richter sold the car and it remained on the east coast with two more owners until 1981, when it was sold to Peter J. Van Dyck of Los Gatos, California. By 1984, the car passed to Mansour Ojjeh, the CEO of the TAG group. Ojjeh allegedly kept the car in California and it remained with him until 2001, when it was sold to Simon Rubin of Belair. In 2004, it was imported into Canada when it was purchased by Kevan Dutchak of Toronto. It was then purchased by its current Canadian custodian.

It was given a restoration over the course of five years to its 'as-intended' competition specification. It is finished in N.A.R.T. livery and fitted with side pipes, a rollbar, racing harnesses, and Plexiglas headlight covers, but without flared fenders.
