On the BTCC cars, there are two separate fuel injection systems - each feeding 
all five cylinders.  The driver can switch either on and off.
That particular Sport, BTW, was just bought by Dialynx for an estimated 
GBP56000.  It was supposedly detuned a little for the Top Gear outing.

I _still_ think the Sport's turbocharger looks like a sewage pump.
