Inverness to host Sunbeam Talbot Alpine car event

About 100 Sunbeam Talbot Alpines from the UK, continental Europe, and North America are expected to meet in Inverness over the weekend of July 1 to July 4, 2011, Friday to Monday.

Owners and their cars will visit sites around Inverness, including Culloden Battlefield and Bogbain Farm.

It is now more than 50 years since the marque was last manufactured.

The Sunbeam Talbot Alpine Register (STAR) are involved in organising this event, described as the first such rally to be held in Inverness.

STAR was established in 1969 to encourage the use, restoration and preservation of the Talbot, Sunbeam Talbot, and Sunbeam cars manufactured by the Rootes Group between 1936 and 1957.
