Fastest Dolomite to celebrate 40 years

| 8 Jan 2013

More than 1000 Triumphs are expected to gather at the Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon for the final day of the Standard Triumph Anniversary Rally 90 on 19 May.

Key to the event will be a special display for the 40th anniversary of the Dolomite Sprint, including highlights from the model’s production run and motor sport activities – with 100 cars from the Triumph Dolomite Club.

The range-topping Triumph was the first mass-produced car with four valves per cylinder and the first British model to come with alloy wheels as standard.

It was successfully campaigned by Tony Dron and Andy Rouse in the British Touring Car Championship and rallied in the hands of such drivers as Tony Pond and Brian Culcheth.

Highlights of the meeting will include a talk from Prodrive chairman David Richards, who rallied the Sprint in the ’70s, parades and a trade show.

The event will also feature displays from the TR Register, Stag Owners Club, The TSSC, The Triumph 2000/2500/2.5 Register, and Club Triumph.
