The 24 Hours of le Mans
 

The Riley Sprite is a two-seater open sports car model produced by Riley Motors from 1935 to 1938. It followed on from the company's Imp and MPH sports cars. The Sprite was mostly built with 4 cylinder engines, although alternatively a 6 cylinder engine was available. The chassis was based on that of the preceding 'MPH' model. Its racing success (especially in the form of the Riley T.T. Sprite model) led to the adoption of 'Sprite' as a designation for the top-end sportier model in the Riley Kestrel saloon car range of the time.

This resin model is from an unidentified kit, constructed and finished by Tony Smith of Bournemouth, sourced in July 2018. It is numbered 39, however I believe the car as raced was number 36
