Hi all,

Can anyone please confirm (with reference to period written information) that the Dolomite Sprint Gr. 2 wing extensions were made from GRP (or otherwise)? The FIA homologation 5542 has no mention of material..

The only works Group 2 Dolomite built by Broadspeed had metal rear arches and glass front arches. I rebuilt and have maintained the car for over 20 years.

After a long time making all kind of GPR products for us our old friend Tony retired complete. (worked for Lotus, -Elan body's- before he came over in the early 70' to start here in the Netherlands)
But we got hold on an other old GPR guy doing this work all his life who is willing to make new sets.
The molds are at his company right now so we expect to get several sets in a few weeks.
Yes I know this took by far to long. :oops:
