I have had a Spitfire for some time now but decided I wanted something that would both keep up with the Straight six fans in our local club and was comfortable enough to make longer trips easier. I took the Spitfire round the North 500 earlier this year which was fun but hard work.
So I bought the Green Dolomite Sprint that Robsport had up for sale.
I am still getting used to it at the moment, the throttle seems to have very strong return springs on it which makes pulling away smoothly a bit of a challenge. But it performed well in the 38deg heat today reaching about 3/4 on the temp gauge in traffic.
Steering doesn't seem to self centre very much compared to the Spitfire so I will check the alignment. The suspension feels a bit soft as well but that might just be that my other cars are hard.
I am very pleased with it so far.
So you were the one that beat me too it! I was late to the party but I'm there now.....
I am a fellow newbie here and have recently bought my first Sprint after what you can see below is a hoard of straight sixes!
Totally different driving experience in the Sprint, a little more refined I suppose....
Enjoy and maybe see you at some events in the future......are you local to Robsport??
I'm in South Hertfordshire so I was going to get in touch with them to do a few bits, seem to be well respected.
