Available for sale is this very well known Triumph TR4 FIA race car. It is one of the best known and longest serving historic race cars in the UK. There is a long list of well respected racers who have owned and raced it over the years including Martin Thomas, Richard Bull, Chris Conoley, of MASS Racing, Martin Brewer and most recently Dave Griffiths. The car has been constantly maintained and successfully campaigned season after season for decades.
Under the current custodian, the car has been re-painted with a change of livery from black with silver stripes to black and red. The car has been mechanically refreshed each winter with maintenance between every race. In recent years the car has raced predominantly with the Equipe GTS series with the occasional outing with the HSCC Guards Trophy. The car has also been invited to Goodwood twice in the last four years, competing at both the 73rd and 76th GRRC Members Meetings.
The freshly rebuilt engine features a 12 bolt steel crankshaft, long steel con rods and light weight short crown pistons. The cylinder head is fully race modified using a brand new iron casting. The light weight steel flywheel transmits power through a Tilton clutch to the Quaife gear set. The gear kit was new for 2018 and the gearbox was refreshed again for 2019. The rear axle has a limited slip differential and competition half shafts. The car is fitted with 15 x 6” Minilite alloy wheels and a good set of Dunlop CR65 tyres. There is a used spare Quaife gearbox with the car as well as a spare set of wheels. The car is sold with FIA HTP papers dated to 2025 and ready to race.

We had another quick TR4 in recently for a little dyno session on the rolling road. Known to be a quick car, it showed very good results from it’s Mass Racing engine.
To say it was cold is an understatement. It was bitter, but then who are we if we don’t have the weather to complain about. This weather was so bad it will keep us going with out complaints for the whole season. F5000 cars in the snow? Yep! Still thoroughly enjoyed the racing though so all was not lost. The Gurney Cup was epic as was the Sears Trophy, Gerry Marshall Trophy and the Bolster Cup for pre-war Specials. We had Dave Griffiths out in the Ronnie Hoare Trophy race in the best looking Triumph TR4 on the grid. The black and red Triumph was back at Goodwood for the 2nd time having raced previously at the GRRC 73rd Members Meeting.
Dave Griffith’s FIA Triumph TR4 is ready to head down to Goodwood today for this weekends GRRC 76th Members Meeting. This winter we built a new engine with a significant jump in power between 4000rpm and 7000rpm. We’ve had two successful test sessions leading up to this event and now it is time to load up head down. The expectation is for a mini ice age this weekend so fingers crossed there’s not too much snow. See you there.
We are excited to be attending the GRRC’s 76th Members Meeting at Goodwood with Dave Griffith’s Triumph TR4. Dave last competed at Goodwood at the 73rd Members Meeting. This follows Dave’s class championship win in the Equipe GTS 2017 season. Over the winter the car has been prepped and has received a freshly developed engine with a new cam profile and some lighter weight pistons from JE.
One of our many tasks this winter is a fresh prep and engine rebuild for the Griffith’s FIA Triumph TR4. Keeping a good car fast and reliable takes constant work and the winter is a good time to get ahead. We’ve been through the suspension and drivetrain, rebuilt the gearbox and are in the process of rebuilding the engine. The engine is getting a fresh set of pistons and a recently developed camshaft profile.
