Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

This book aims to un­ravel the con­vo­luted story of how the Tri­umph 1300 evolved into the Dolomite and its off­shoots, a fron­twheel to rear-wheel drive jour­ney we’re not con­vinced that even Tri­umph it­self un­der­stood.

As a Tri­umph en­thu­si­ast and club mag­a­zine ed­i­tor, Kevin War­ring­ton is the ideal per­son to put all the Project Ajax pieces to­gether and there’s a lot of in­for­ma­tion within this book’s 96 pages, which be­gin with Tri­umph’s res­cue by the Stan­dard Mo­tor Com­pany. Aside from the pe­riod pub­lic­ity shots, the pho­tog­ra­phy is dis­ap­point­ing – it’s very much of the ‘snapped at shows’ va­ri­ety – but this is still a handy ref­er­ence guide about mod­els that don’t get too much book cov­er­age.
