Could anyone who may have worked or possibly know what the word ROTA stood for on the Sunbeam Tiger 1965- 70 which was sent to Jensen from Roots at Ryton Coventry.
This was on a card which was on all the Tigers that went to Jensen.
I am asking for a fellow classic car collector who has superb Sunbeam Tiger and hopes to add this information to his vehicle's history.

In late August 1964 some two months into
production the Jensen ‘ledgers’ record a new
batch order numbering system (Rota) as a result
of a Rootes Order for 15 “GT” Tigers.

This is from the Sunbeam Tiger website, and does not explain what the letters stand for.
