STOC Committee member Graham Vickery gives an insight to the Tiger 50th Birthday celebrations.
“STOC has attended every Le Mans Classic since 2002 and before that we attended the Legends events that ran prior to the 24hrs. The Sunbeam Tiger first competed at Le Mans in the 1964 edition but didn’t return again until The Legends event of 2000. Since then there has been one or more Sunbeam Lister Tigers enter the Le Mans Classic on each successive occasion. In 2004 – the 40th anniversary of the Tiger – we were able & fortunate to have two of the original drivers from ’64 with us; indeed Peter Procter competed in ADU 180B – his ride of 1964.
Coming up to our 50th Anniversary of the Tiger in 2014, STOC has arranged for our most significant presence yet, for which we are grateful for the considerable help of Classic Car Tours, and expect to see one LM Tiger running which will have travelled from California. On this occasion however we start our trip to France with a tour of Normandy on what will be the 70th anniversary year of the D-Day Landings and after the LMC we shall be travelling through the Loire to explore the classic French combination of the château and wines of the region!!”
