US Vintage GP Big Bore Enduro 2011_Chip Vance
This is the SVRA Big Bore Enduro at the US Vintage Grand Prix. The driver
is Chip Vance in the #71 914-6. The first lap Chip shows what this very
well balanced car can do passing cars that should be faster. Chip is also a very talented driver
so passing people on the outside is something he can do. We did not
complete the Enduro due to transmission problem, but we did finish 1st in
Tail of the Dragon in a Triumph Spitfire
*** yep***updated after 108 views- # curves corrected and engine revs
Three of us ran up R129 to Knoxville from the Road Atlanta Mitty 2012
event. The bikers at the Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort (with the 'Tree of
Shame') loved our cars nearly as much as we do. This little ditty is just
an example of this twisty road....318 curves in 11 miles, but only 6 miles
as the crow flies. This is just the first 1/3rd-2/3rds before the overlook,
set to music that I feel matched the mood of the road.
This is Triumph
Like many auto companies, Triumph started out making bicycles but like the
others found a new life in the four wheel world.
Known mainly for its sports cars the company also produced family cars but
it was the roadsters that got the attention.
Unfortunately, the company dissolved along with the rest of British Leyland
and the brand's name is now owned by BMW.

The Triumph Motor Company was a British car and motor manufacturing
company. The Triumph marque (trade-name) is owned currently by BMW. The
marque had its origins in 1885 when Siegfried Bettmann (1863--1951) of
Nuremberg initiated S. Bettmann & Co and started importing bicycles from
Europe and selling them with his own trade-name in London. The trade-name
became "Triumph" the year next, and in 1887 Bettmann was joined by a
partner, Moritz (Maurice) Schulte, also from Germany. Beginning in 1889 the
businessmen started producing their own bicycles in Coventry, England.
In November 1944 what was left of the Triumph Motor Company and the Triumph
trade-name were bought by the Standard Motor Company and a subsidiary
"Triumph Motor Company (1945) Limited" was formed with production
transferred to Standard's factory at Canley, on the outskirts of Coventry.
The pre-war Triumph models were not revived and in 1946 a new range of
Triumphs was announced, starting with the Triumph Roadster. The Roadster
had an aluminium body because steel was in short supply and surplus
aluminium from aircraft production was plentiful.
In the early 1950s it was decided to use the Triumph name for sporting cars
and the Standard name for saloons and in 1953 the Triumph TR2 was
initiated, the first of a series that would be produced until 1981.

1975 Triumph TR6
This TR6 was originally a right-hand driver, and was converted by the
factory to be a left-hand driver for sale in the USA. We purchased the car
from a gentleman in Michigan, who owned the car for 19 years. He bought the
car out of Wichita, Kansas, in 1993, and drove it all the way home from
Kansas to Michigan. He has kept the car mostly stock, and only did a few
subtle changes. This car was entered into the "Battle of the Brits" car
competition 4 of the last 5 years, and took 1st or 2nd every time.
