Donald Healey: The man behind the sports car
Donald Healey was not only an aircraft enthusiast, automobile engineer and Triumph salesman, he was above all a rally driver. He finally made a name for himself with his victory in the Monte Carlo Rally in 1931. So it is not surprising that he was also the one who used Triumph models in motorsport. From 1933, he was then employed by Triumph in the development department.
During the Second World War, Healey was employed by the British car manufacturer Humber and worked on tanks. After the war, he founded the Donald Healey Motor Company in 1945. It was not until the Earls Court Show in 1952 that Healey traded up to Austin with a 100/4 on the stand.
The company developed Austin-Healey and Austin-Healey Sprite vehicles under a licensing agreement with the British Motor Corporation between 1952 and 1959. This is how Donald Healey's design came into large-scale production. Austin's market power ensured professional distribution, also and especially in the USA.
Austin Healey and the racing
Today's classic was often and gladly used in races and also celebrated countless successes: starting with the successful participation in the 24-hour race of Le Mans in 1950, the Healeys, or later the Austin-Healeys, achieved numerous racing successes over the years. The Austin-Healey 100, the Austin-Healey Sprite and the Austin-Healey 3000 were all successful at Le Mans.
In 1955, an Austin-Healey 100S was unfortunately involved in the Le Mans disaster. But the racing car also achieved fame, among other things, through a special female driver of that time. Pat Moss was Stirling's younger sister and extremely successful in rallying. One of the Healeys she drove very fast was called "Pig" because of its driving characteristics. The Sprite and its companion, the Midget, also celebrated great racing successes.
