Triumph GT6 MK3 vintage race car part 1
A tour of the GT6 race car engine bay , part 1. Visit
http://www.austinhealeywood.com/brakelines.html for information on the
copper nickel brake line kits that I mentioned in the video. I will be
adding part 2 of this video next week.
My friend and I built this vintage race car over the course of several
years. It may have been raced in Canada when it was new, but I have very
little information about it's history.
The engine was built to be reliable so that we could sort out the car on
track. It could certainly make more power by increasing the compression
ratio and doing a few other things. It has been very reliable so far. I
drive a street GT6 and I can tell you that there is no comparison between
the stock engine and this one. This engine revs very freely and is still
making power up to the rev limiter (7000 RPM). This is due to all of the
work done on the head, the Exhaust
header and the weber carb setup.
Lime rock vintage festival 2009
Highlights of in car video during the 2009 Lime rock vintage festival.
This event is held every Labor day weekend and is a must visit event for
any sports car enthusiast. Lime rock park is a special place. I think of
this race track as being the birthplace of road racing in America, along
with Watkins Glenn and Bridgehampton.
Sorry about the chickens at the end. Somehow it does not seem right that a
racing video should end with chickens, but oh well, that is the way it
Triumph TR4 (TRS) - 1961 Le Mans 24hrs (10th June 1961)
Triumph at Le Mans (1961)
June 10th 1961 From the Standard Triumph archives
Commentary by Raymond Baxter
This is a promotional film produced by the Standard Triumph Motor Company
of Coventry, England. The film documents the 1961 24hr of Le Mans and the 3
Triumph TR4S racing prototypes entered by the company. This was a follow up
to a similar but less than successful effort by the company the previous
year, which was also documented on film.
Triumph GT6 Mk3 race car
I did a lot of work porting the cylinder head to make the engine rev so
freely. The stock Exhaust ports are
originally are nearly square. The Exhaust headers have nearly round ports and a
lot of material had to be removed from the head casting to match the two. I
also cut off the bottoms of the Exhaust guides, although I do not think this
makes a big difference. The intake is also port matched. I was a bit
concerned about the huge amount of material removed from the head around
the Exhaust ports, but so far we have
about 8 races on this engine and it has performed superbly.
