Austin Healey Sprite Sebring Replica Race Car

The Austin Healey Sprite was launched in May 1958, in that same month a Sprite had its race debut in the hands of Douglas Wilson-Spratt at Silverstone. Douglas later built the WSM special bodied Sprites & Midget. Sprites quickly became the budget sports car of choice for many club racers & rally crews. Several tuning companies also saw the potential of the Sprite, one of the main exponents was John Sprinzel, who working with Williams & Pritchard designed the Sprinzel Sebring Sprite Coupe, of which 6 were built. John’s own car was registered PMO 200 & had much success in both international racing & rallying, most notably when driven by Stirling Moss at Sebring in 1961.

The car on offer here has been built as a replica of PMO 200. Built in Holland approximately 15 years ago & returned to UK about 12 years ago by long standing & very well respected Austin Healey exponent Eddie Woods for his son Harvey to race, which they did with much success in various race series including Equipe GTS, HRDC & AMOC.
