DeLorean memories to be revived at anniversary event

By Michelle Smyth

The Northern Irish workforce that built the world's most famous sports car will be stepping back in time as they get together for the 35th anniversary of the DeLorean DMC-12.

The nostalgia-laden event will also be looking 'Back to the Future' with the first public showings of a new production version of the DeLorean sports car.

Former purchasing director Barrie Wills said it was the perfect opportunity for a long overdue reunion of old colleagues. It will be held at the Stuart Suite in the Culloden Hotel, where the DeLorean was first test driven by US automotive journalists in 1981.

The event will be held over the May bank holiday weekend and will include a tour of the former factory. Anyone interested can contact Mr Wills on 07802 750873 or email
