This young lady was one of several official drivers of the 18-22 Series Wimbledon cars. The fleet of white Austin and Morris 1800ís were used for ferrying players between the playing courts and hotels for the 1975 championship. This was a trend that continued for Leyland, as Princesses were later used for subsequent tournaments and were fitted with electric windows and sunroofs. It is very doubtful that many of these cars are left; one did crop up recently but it was in a very poor condition.

Hereís an advert for the Princess, showing their use as official players transport for the 1977 Wimbledon tournament.
