TVR Grantura fresh race preparation

The white TVR Grantura has been undergoing a fairly extensive race preparation. Although the car is already a race car and has been raced recently at Goodwood Revival the level of preparation is not quite up to scratch. For example, the seats were mounted to the fibreglass floor and even though there was a reinforcement plate underneath it would not have offered the level of safety we are happy with. As an alternative we have welded solid lengths of steel between the front and rear chassis tubes with captive nuts on the underside. The FIA Tillet racing seats now mount to this steel which means they are directly attached to the chassis. Among a number of other things the car will be getting a new fuel tank, pump and regulator and some new gauges in the dashboard.
