Triumph TR4 – 1962 Alpine Rally, 1st in Class, Mike Sutcliffe and Roy Fidler
Product Code: VA11502
The TR4 started its international rally career on the 1962 Tulip Rally, where three of the now famous ‘VC’ cars achieved 2nd, 3rd and 4th in class. For the Alpine, just a month later, these same cars were lightened and fitted with larger 2.2-litre engines, which had high lift camshafts and tubular manifolds, improving the cars’ power to weight ratio by around 22%. Three of the four cars finished, coming 1st, 2nd and 3rd in class.
The car modelled, 4 VC, won the under 2.5-litre class, finished 4th overall and won a coveted ‘Coupe des Alpes’.
4 VC has been owned since 1969 by enthusiast Ian Cornish, and it considered to be the most original of the existing works TR4 rally cars. It is often seen at Triumph and other club events.
