"The John Dellaca/Terry Wade Dolomite Sprint [#35] wrote an infamous page in Bathurst 1000 history, after it tail-rammed the stationary Jack Brabham/Stirling Moss Torana L34 which was stuck in gear on the starting grid for the 1976 race. ..... It was classified a non-finisher after completing insufficient laps." - Link to "www.shannons.com.au"

"The August 1975 arrival of the Triumph Dolomite Sprint [in Aus] with its unique 16 valve engine and yellow-only livery injected some four cylinder excitement into a range based entirely on updated 1960s models. ..... Leyland Australia press ads in 1975 offered a Jaguar XJ6/12 Series II, the AMI-assembled Triumph 2500 TC, two versions of the Dolomite, the ageing TR6 roadster, the Triumph Stag and the last of the Rover P6B 3500 V8 models. The Range Rover was also making a name for itself after taking several years to reach Australia. And the locally assembled Mini Clubman and Moke faced fierce new competition from Japan. .....Almost as suddenly as it arrived, the Sprint had left the Australian market by June 1976, before it could run foul of new ADR27a emissions laws. In just 10 months, the Sprint had generated a profile way beyond its tiny sales, helped along by the exclusive Mimosa Yellow colour (seen on local Triumph Stag and TR6 deliveries but not other local Dolomites) of Australian Sprint deliveries." - Link to "www.shannons.com.au"
