Funnily enough I think there might have been another NASCAR demo at Brands in the 90s apart from the one you mentioned?
Unless I''m thinking of the Rod Birley demo you mentioned, I think I remember one of the BTCC drivers doing a few demo laps in a NASCAR at a BTCC meeting, in the mid-90's.
My memory may be unreliable on this, but I think
it was Paul Radisich who drove it for the demo, when he was driving for Ford in the BTCC- suggesting the NASCAR was of Ford rather than GM origin. Valvoline sponsorship rings a bell, which would make sense- IIRC they sponsored both the BTCC Mondeos and Mark Martin in NASCAR around that period
