[DVD] Story of the Triumph Stag - Code Name Stag


Triumph Stag: The Legendary 2+2 Sporting Grand Tourer

The Stag was a new concept for a mass produced British car; this was a grand tourer to compete with brands such as Alfa Romeo and Mercedes boasting an all new V8 engine, styling by Giovanni Michelotti and a marketing campaign aimed squarely at the young executive. Yet despite all this, the car was a financial failure for British Leyland with less than 26,000 cars built during its seven year production run.

However, soon after the cessation of production in 1977 and despite all the problems, the Stag quickly attained classic status. As a result a high percentage of these cars have survived and are still providing enjoyment to thousands of Triumph enthusiasts all over the world.

This film charts the history of the car from its origins right up to the present day featuring archive footage and images, input from former Triumph engineers, Triumph historians and Stag enthusiasts along with new footage of the surviving prototypes, press cars and other imprtant Stags shot exclusively for this release.

French Revolution Rally 2010

7th – 11th June
I have taken part in the French Revolution Rally a few times in the past with friends and last time with Marcus, my son. This year Sue, my wife and I entered in our Works Rally TR4.
The nature of the event, for those not familiar, is of a road regularity rally. Some regularity rally’s can be a little tedious, with long stretches of straight roads having to be run at 50kph. This is not the case with the French Revolution, which is by comparison, fast and furious.
