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

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.

First Start of my new Triumph GT6 engine
This is a motor I got for free. I scrounged up a distributor for it,
plugged some egr ports, and let it rip. It seems to run fine so far...
Update, this is the engine that was used to swap into my spitfire and
converted to megasquirt EFI. It ran like a champ till I sold 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.
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.
Triumph GT6 MK3 vintage race car part 1
A tour of the GT6 race car engine bay , part 1. Visit

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.

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.
