Triumph TR4A preparation for Sprint and Hill Climb racing. The owner of this very tidy Triumph TR4A is in the process of preparing it for some light competition use. Mainly sprints and hill climbs. Although the regulations are less strict than for circuit racing, there are still many things that need to be considered. As always, safety is paramount.
First we put the car on the rolling road to fine tune the freshly built engine. Following that we made an aluminium rear bulkhead, sealing off the cabin from the boot where the fuel tank resides. Additionally we fitted a rear roll cage with harness bar. Finally, for this Triumph hill climb preparation, we carried out a complete spanner check. We found that the brake and clutch master cylinders were leaking so these were also replaced. We always recommend fitting new brake master cylinders before any competition use.
