Tiger, Alpine, Rapier by Richard Langworth

Richard M. Langworth a well-known author and historian will be a featured speaker.  He wrote many books amongst them the book: “Tiger, Alpine, Rapier: Sporting Cars from the Rootes Group.” He will help with the “Tiger 60” celebration.

In 1964, Richard went to the Rootes showroom in Manhattan to drive a demo car. They had sheet glass windows that retracted into the street so you could literally drive one “off the floor.”  He had been driving an Alpine, so it looked pretty much the same. He got onto East Side Drive and put his foot down. Then “wow–I’ve got to get one of these”! And the rest is history. 


The autocrossers  will have to be awake bright and early because the registration and tech inspections start at 8:00 am at the Canaan Motor Club,  an 18 mile drive from the hotel. (Details here) It will be a challenging course to run. The SCCNH https://sccnh.org/  which will be autocrossing all weekend, and will allow us to be in the first group of racers on Sunday. Their Agenda: 10am – Group A Runs / Group B Works till 11am, when group B Runs and Group A works, etc., alternating between the A,B,C groups. Volunteers are wanted to help SCCNH, which will give our drivers more runs.

Other things to see

The Awards Banquet

A cash bar accompanied by life French Canadian and Cajun music will precede our Awards Banquet. We have no guarantee yet, but we hope to be showing as a first in the US, the Tiger at 60 movie which is being made in the UK. The parts room will be open for that last minute purchase, or you can relax at the hospitality room.

A special effort will be made to have more Alpines and particularly Rare Rootes cars to attend.   Even If your Sunbeam is still undergoing repairs, or restoration, plan to come anyway. Everybody enjoys being part of the United. And being in August, it might be easier for younger families with children to attend.

BTW Come early or stay late to enjoy both states. Check out the area attractions.  Trailer and/or car parking before or after the event is possible at Robert’s property about 15 miles away. This to enable participants to vacation a little longer in the area.

  Just in case your car needs service, there is a Midas around   the corner from the hotel.

  That’s where we stand now.  We can use volunteers even before this United, to make a memorable event for all of us.     Contact Robert to volunteer: tel/txt (603)359-0708 or 64*******@gm***.com
