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.
Spring had arrived just in time for last Thursdays test at Goodwood Motor Circuit. The sun was shining and the track was dry. This was the final test for the Cheetah and the Shelby GT350R prior to Goodwood’s 75th Members Meeting and the Graham Hill Trophy. Some final adjustments are being made now before we all head down later this week.
Our favourite race weekend of the year is Goodwood’s GRRC Members Meeting. This year is the 75th event and promises to be the best yet. The Weslake Cup is a race for A-series powered Sports and GT cars and in which we will have the pleasure of running five of them. Starting with our very own Shaun Rainford in the intimidating Lenham GT “SS1800” returning to Goodwood for the first time since it’s 2nd place podium at the 2010 Revival. Shaun’s son Charles Rainford makes his Goodwood debut in his red and blue Lenham Le Mans and Mike Haigh rounds out the Lenham contingent in his sage green Green Lenham Le Mans. Ian Burford returns to Goodwood with his Sebring Sprite “Lumbertubs” and Larry Tucker will also make his Goodwood debut in his Ashley GT.
