We think of Rover SD1s as a stalwart of the Group 1 touring car grid at the Members’ Meeting presented by Audrain Motorsport, and indeed, an essential piece of the saloon car racing puzzle in the early to mid-1980s. There was a point, however, where someone had to think “hmmm. SD1. That would make a good racing car”. That person (or outfit), was David Price Racing (yes, before Tom Walkinshaw Racing got hold of them) and the car we’re writing about today is SD1 DPR1, the first of the roaring racing Rovers.
