Triumph TR 4 on the Nürburgring Nordschleife 2002 Prototype
By accident a little race between
a TR 4 and a fast protoype
TR 4: 113 HP, wirespoke wheels, standard tires, standard equipment
Prototype: 480kg, 120 HP, speed 250 km/h, Dunlop racing tires.
The prototype driver was learning "the line".
He repassed me when I cooled down my engine on the long straight to have a
short break on the parking.
Vintage Race at Portland
Vintage racing between a Triumph Spitfire and an Austin Healey Sprite at
Portland Intl Raceway - Cameras in both cars
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.

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.
