Footnotes

  • The tuning potential of its big V8 engine made it inevitable that the 3500 (SD1) would be raced, the works cars prepared by Tom Walkinshaw Racing being among the most competitive racing saloons of the 1980s. Rovers won their class in the British Touring Car Championship in 1981 and 1982, and took outright victory in the 1983 RAC Tourist Trophy race.

    Following a successful defence of the British Saloon Car Championship in 1979 by Richard Longman, Patrick Motorsport decided to move up into the largest capacity class where outright wins could be achieved. The Rover SD1 was chosen and throughout 1980 a single car, prepared by ex-saloon racer Martin Thomas of SRG Competitions, Biggleswade, was run for the late Brian Muir.

    In 1981 SRG Competitions with continuing sponsorship from Patrick Motors ran two Patrick Motorsport Rovers driven by Brian Muir and Rex Greenslade. In 1982 only one car was run, driven during the year by Brian Muir and ex-Formula 2 ace Rad Dougall. Although competitive with the works Rovers and Ford Capris the team gained no outright victories. Patrick Motorsport pulled out of racing at the end of the year.

    An extra 3rd car – this car – was built for Patrick Motors in 1981 by SRG as a show car, however it did compete in round 11 of the 1981 British Saloon Car Championship. Operational when laid up at the end of its racing career, this ex-Patrick Motorsport car has an RS Race Engineering badged engine installed. There are no documents with this Lot.
