FIA RACE CARS
1973 Triumph Dolomite Sprint For SaleEx-works (Leyland Cars Belgium) Group 1 car, driven by Julien Vernaeve, René Metge and Tony Pond. This important Triumph Dolomite Sprint is race ready having been a regular Motor Racing Legends HTCC & Goodwood Members’ Meeting entrant, and is the only remaining original Group 1 Leyland Cars works-supported car that is known to exist. Built in late 1973 for the 1974 season, chassis 2493 was actively campaigned in Europe by the works for a full 4 seasons – including 4 entries into the legendary Spa 24 Hours. The car was then retired at the end of the 1977 season, and spent a long period in the Spa Circuit Museum. It was therefore untouched and remained totally original. The current owner bought the car in 2009 and since then has sympathetically restored the car, while also developing it into a very competitive historic racer – as can be seen by its results at the three Goodwood Members’ Meetings it has been invited to take part in.
