Footnotes

  • 'In rallying form its 4.2-litre engine produced at least 200bhp, which made it competitive with the Big Healeys, and there was a most impressive spread of torque. Had this car been properly developed, it should have had the Austin-Healey 3000 beaten.' – Graham Robson, 'A-Z Works Rally Cars'.

    An ultra-rare works rally car of considerable importance, 'AHP 294B' was prepared by Rootes' Competition Department and first registered to Humber Ltd on 1st July 1964. Featured in Graham Robson's 'A-Z of Works Rally Cars' (page 155), it is one of only five surviving works Sunbeam Tiger rally cars constructed by Rootes' Competition Department.
    Built in left-hand drive configuration, this extensively campaigned car made its international debut in the 1964 Geneva Rally driven by 'Tiny' Lewis and Barry Hughes, winning the GT Class and finishing 11th overall. Used by Andrew Cowan/Colin Turvey as a 'recce' car for the 1965 Monte Carlo Rally, 'AHP 294B' was driven in that event by Maurice Gatsonides and Albert Ilken, only to retire in the horrendous weather conditions encountered by the Paris starters.

    Gatsonides then had the idea of using the Tiger to set some Dutch National Endurance records using the Zandvoort circuit, a successful attempt that culminated in new best marks for three, six, 12, and 24 hours, the latter at an average speed of 75.47mph (see press cutting on file). 'AHP' then went on to compete in the 1965 Tulip Rally driven by Peter Riley and Robin Turvey, being eliminated when it ran out of time after being slowed by un-seasonal snow when on racing tyres. Later in 1965, and again driven by Lewis/Hughes, the Tiger was forced to retire from the Alpine Rally when one of the rear brakes failed. The ensuing localised fire is almost certainly what led to the Tiger being rebuilt at the Competition Department around a new, later-type bodyshell to the latest international rallying regulations which required cars to match the silhouette of the production model.

    The Tiger's next competitive appearance was in the 1966 Monte Carlo Rally, driven by Peter Harper and Robin Turvey, from which it retired on Stage 5 having posted some impressive times. Its final outing as a works entry was in the '66 Tulip Rally, serving as Harper/Turvey's recce car. 'AHP' was then sold by the Competition Department, via a well-connected Belgian intermediary, to racing driver Chris Tuerlinckx, who formed 'Sunbeam Tiger Racing' with former Rootes engineer, Vic Heylen.

    Driven by Tuerlinckx, the car's first outing as a private entry was the 1966 Tour de Belgique, which 'AHP' won outright to secure only the second international rally victory by a Tiger (John Gott's in the International Police Rally had been the first). Then came an entirely new challenge: the Spa Francorchamps 1,000km. This first venture into endurance racing would end in a 'DNF', but at the following year's Spa race the Tiger won the GT Class and finished a highly creditable 13th overall despite being pitted against works prototypes fielded by the likes of Ferrari, Porsche, Lola, and Mirage. That year's Tour de Belgique saw 'AHP' win the GT category on its way to 3rd overall, and the car continued to be campaigned in Dutch and Belgian events until the early 1970s when it was sold to Hugh Chamberlain in the UK.

    It appears that Chamberlain did nothing with Tiger, which he sold in 1988 to 'Big Healey' specialist, Ted Worswick. While with Ted Worswick, the car was restored by Jeff Goodliffe's GRV of Littleborough before being acquired by David Duncanson in 1991. An authority on Rootes Group works rally cars, David Duncanson ensured that 'AHP' was returned to as correct as possible 1966 specification. Subsequently, ex-rallying star Rosemary Smith campaigned the Tiger on several occasions in historic events, winning the Coupe des Dames category more than once (details on file).

    Acquired by the current vendor in May 2014, 'AHP' was then treated to a full 'last nut and bolt' restoration by Hardy Hall Restorations of Thornbury, Herefordshire, while the engine has been rebuilt by Knight Racing Services of Daventry. Related bills on file total circa £100,000 (approximately €113,000) and the car also comes with a dynamometer test sheet (213bhp at the flywheel). On delivery from Hardy Hall, 'AHP' and its crew went out the next day and secured a class win in the 2015 Tour Britannia. In 2016, this famous ex-works Tiger successfully competed in the Monte Carlo Historique, and in 2018 led the Bromyard Motor Club's road trip to the Spa Classic, revisiting the historic Belgian circuit 51 years on from its last race there.

    Prospective purchasers are urged to examine the most substantial history file, which contains the original buff logbook, period photographs, contemporary press cuttings, results sheets, expired MoTs, FIVA Identity Card, UK V5C Registration Certificate, and a Sunbeam Tiger Owners' Association Certificate of Authenticity. It also comes with the original factory hardtop, with various 1960s events stickers still in place, plus two sets of wheels shod with studded snow tyres. Possessing impeccable provenance and presented in superb condition, this historic works Sunbeam Tiger is ready to use.

    « En version rallye, son moteur 4,2 litres développait au moins 200 ch, ce qui la rendait compétitive face aux Big Healey et elle affichait un couple énorme. Si la voiture avait été mise au point correctement, elle aurait dû battre les Austin-Healey 3000 à plate couture ». – Graham Robson, in A-Z Works Rally Cars.

    Très rare voiture de rallye d'usine d'une importance considérable, AHP 294B a été préparée par le service compétition de Rootes et immatriculée à l'origine pour Humber Ltd le 1er juillet 1964. Illustrée dans l'ouvrage de Graham Robson « A-Z of Works Rally Cars » (page 155), elle est l'une des cinq survivantes des Sunbeam Tiger rallye d'usine, réalisée par le service compétition de Rootes.

    Construite avec conduite à gauche, cette voiture, engagée à de multiples reprises, a fait ses débuts internationaux dans le rallye de Genève en 1964, pilotée par « Tiny » Lewis et Barry Hughes, remportant la catégorie GT en finissant 11e au classement général. Utilisée par Andrew Cowan/Colin Turvey pour la reconnaissance du rallye de Monte-Carlo en 1965, AHP 294B était pilotée pendant l'épreuve par Maurice Gatsonides et Albert Ilken, avant d'abandonner dans les terribles conditions climatiques rencontrées par les concurrents au départ de Paris.

    Gatsonides eut alors l'idée d'utiliser la Tiger pour établir quelques records d'endurance nationaux sur le circuit de Zandvoort, une initiative couronnée de succès qui permit de battre les records pour trois, six, douze et 24 heures, ce dernier à la vitesse moyenne de 121,457 km/h (voir coupures de presse au dossier). AHP participa ensuite au rallye des Tulipes en 1965, pilotée par Peter Riley et Robin Turvey, éliminés après avoir dépassé le temps imparti, retardés par leurs pneus compétition sous une tempête de neige inattendue à cette saison. Plus tard,en 1965, à nouveau aux mains de Lewis/Hughes, la Tiger fut contrainte à l'abandon dans le rallye des Alpes, trahie par l'un de ses freins arrière. L'incendie partiel qui s'ensuivit est probablement la raison de la reconstruction de la Tiger par le service compétition avec une nouvelle coque plus récente, conforme au dernier règlement en cours qui obligeait les concurrentes à avoir la même apparence que les voitures de série.

    La prochaine apparition en compétition de la Tiger eut lieu en 1966 au rallye de Monte-Carlo, pilotée par Peter Harper et Robin Turvey, qui abandonnèrent dans la cinquième étape, après avoir réalisé des temps impressionnants. Sa dernière sortie comme voiture d'usine advint au rallye des Tulipes en 1966, comme voiture de reconnaissance pour Harper/Turvey. AHP fut alors vendue par le service compétition, via un intermédiaire belge bien connu, au pilote de rallye Chris Tuerlinckx, qui avait créé Sunbeam Tiger Racing avec un ancien ingénieur de Rootes, Vic Heylen.

    Pilotée par Tuerlinckx, la première sortie de la voiture à titre privé eut lieu pour le Tour de Belgique 1966, qu'AHP remporta, la seconde victoire en rallye international pour une Tiger (John Gott avait remporté la première dans l'International Police Rally). Puis, arriva un défi entièrement nouveau, les 1 000 Km de Spa-Francorchamps. Cette première incursion en endurance se termina par un abandon, mais l'année suivante à Spa, la Tiger remporta la catégorie GT et termina à une excellente 13e place au classement général, malgré la concurrence des prototypes d'usine de marques comme Ferrari, Porsche, Lola et Mirage. Cette année-là, le Tour de Belgique vit AHP remporter la catégorie GT en terminant 3e au classement général. La voiture fut encore engagée dans des épreuves en Hollande et en Belgique jusqu'au début des années 1970, lorsqu'elle fut vendue à Hugh Chamberlain au Royaume-Uni.

    Il se trouve que Chamberlain ne se servit pas de la Tiger et qu'il revendit en 1988 au spécialiste des Big Healey, Ted Worswick. En possession de Ted Worswick, la voiture fut restaurée par l'atelier GRV de Jeff Goodliffe à Littleborough, avant de passer aux mains de David Duncanson en 1991. David Duncanson, une autorité en matière de voiture de rallye d'usine du groupe Rootes, prit soin de faire remettre AHP dans une configuration aussi proche que possible de celle de 1966. Après quoi l'ex-vedette de rallye Rosemary Smith engagea la Tiger dans plusieurs épreuves historiques, remportant la catégorie Coupe des Dames à plusieurs reprises (voir détails au dossier).

    Achetée par le vendeur en mai 2014, AHP a subi une restauration au dernier boulon par Hardy Hall Restorations de Thornbury, dans le Herefordshire, tandis que le moteur était refait par Knight Racing Services de Daventry. Au dossier, les factures y afférant totalisent environ 100 000 £ (approximativement 113 000 €) et la voiture est vendue avec une fiche de passage au banc (213 ch en sortie de moteur). Avant livraison par Hardy Hall, AHP et son équipe firent une sortie et s'assurèrent une victoire de classe dans le Tour Britannia 2015. En 2016, cette fameuse Tiger d'usine participa avec succès au Monte-Carlo Historique et en 2018 prit la tête du rallye sur route du Bromyard Motor Club au Spa Classic, pour rendre visite au circuit belge historique 51 ans après sa dernière course.

    Les acheteurs éventuels sont expressément invités à examiner le substantiel dossier historique, qui contient le carnet de bord original, des photographies d'époque, des coupures de presse d'époque, des feuilles de résultats, les MoT expirés, la carte de la FIVA, le certificat d'immatriculation UK V5C et un certificat d'authenticité du Sunbeam Tiger Owners' Association. Elle est également vendue avec le hardtop d'usine d'origine et plusieurs autocollants des années 1960 encore en place, ainsi qu'avec deux jeux de roues chaussées de pneus neige à clous. Avec sa provenance impeccable et dans un état exceptionnel, cette Sunbeam Tiger d'usine historique est prête à courir.
