Product Description

Capris dominated the British Saloon Car Championship (BSCC) in the late 1970s, but by 1981 were starting to look outdated and outclassed by the cleverly homologated TWR built Rover SD1 V8. However Vince Woodman led one last Capri hurrah during the 1982 season, winning four races outright in his Neil Brown engined, CC Developments prepared car, and battling all year with works Rover driver Jeff Allam. Woodman looked to set to steal once last championship for the Capri, and led the last round of the series at Silverstone until Gordon Spice punted him over the chicane leaving Allam victorious in Class A by 3 points. Did you know? During a single day in April 1982 Woodman qualified the Capri modelled here for a round of the BSCC at Thruxton, then piloted himself to Castle Combe in a Cessna 172. He made quite a ‘hairy’ full flap landing on the track, pulling up just short of Quarry, before jumping in to his ‘Cologne’ Capri to win a Thunder Saloon race and set a new lap record. He then took off again and flew back to Thruxton where he won the BSCC race as well!
