The 50th anniversary of the Triumph Stag will take place at Silverstone Sunday 1 August for the famous annual Classic event.
As the world’s biggest celebration of retro motoring and motor sport, The Classic is renowned for its record-breaking celebrations of road and racing icons from yesteryear.
“It will be the biggest turn-out since the heady days of Woburn Abbey back in 1990 when we had more than 700 Stags for our National Day,” confirmed Tony Lapworth of the Stag Owners Club. “To mark this important milestone, for the first time we have now made The Classic our official National Day and the wonderful response from our members has been just fantastic. To see so many Stags together on the circuit is going to be really, really impressive.”
In total, between 1970 and 1978 Triumph built close to 26,000 Stags in Coventry and nearly half of these remain in existence today – a tribute to the car’s enduring desirability among classic car enthusiasts.
With its sharp Michelotti-penned lines, accommodating four-seater convertible configuration and glorious sounding, torquey 3-litre V8 engine, leaping Stags have always had huge appeal. It was let down by a V8 engine that wasn’t fully production proven.
