As part of this Triumph TR4 race preparation service we look after every part of a race car. That includes engines and gearboxes. The black and red Triumph TR4 of Dave Griffiths has been undergoing some winter prep ahead of the 2019 season. The engine has been freshly rebuilt with a brand new cylinder head from a new iron casting. Additionally, we’ve changed the camshaft profile to make another jump in power. We will fit a new clutch plate before the engine is mated to the freshly rebuilt gearbox. Finally, the whole unit will be fitted in the car before a rolling road session to dial in the new head and camshaft. The car has it’s first test booked at Brands Hatch on March 1st. Fingers crossed for a dry day.
Last weekend we were back at Brands Hatch with Equipe Classic Racing although this time we were on the full Grand Prix circuit and the race was in support of the British GT championship. Dave Griffiths was racing his black Triumph TR4. Qualifying didn’t quite go to plan but he fought hard to make up a massive 12 places.
Over the winter we have been giving the FIA Triumph TR4 of Dave Griffith’s a thorough refresh. The car has been painted in it’s original black with a new livery. New brightwork and interior trim has been fitted along with a new steering wheel. The engine has been out and has been refreshed ready for the season with a new camshaft from Piper Cams that should see a few extra ponies. We will be testing with Dave and Goodwood Motor Circuit on Tuesday 24th of February. Dave will be competing at the GRRC 73rd Members Meeting on the 21st and 22nd of March. #73MM
