The RS04 is suitable for DSR or CSR. It's sold in the United States by Racing Concepts LLC.

The car is built in the United Kingdom by Speads Racing Cars.

The RS04 sports racer version of the car is assumed to be the RM04 single seat formula car chassis with sports racer bodywork installed.

Bob Schader won the first SCCA DSR National race for the SPEADS chassis on May 31, 2004 at Pikes Peak International Raceway.
