  1. Can't find any history on the web. The VSCC website is a little difficult to navigate, can't quite work out which races and where a 50's car would be acceptable.

    Evening all, Got down to a 1m 14s at Silverstone, I'm pretty happy with that. I'm going to try and get a near full season in with CSCC next year, I think, but then again I may end up doing the 'invitation' races locally again. I'm planning on converting the car to Equipe/FIA spec over the next year or two. I've got steel wings to be prepped and painted. Any recommendations for a sensible body shop in the Midlands? I know my bushes will all need changing and some of the suspension bits removed. I've currently got a steering rack so will be looking for a steering box. If anyone has a box lying around, please get in touch. Also if anyone wants to go down the rack route, we could swap? My set up is has only done 4 races from new. Do you know if the TR3a was ever homologated? Any advice would be very welcomed. Cheers Ed

    Anyone racing at Silverstone this weekend? I'll be in The Jack Fairman race. Hope it doesn't rain as hard as it did last year... Cheers Ed

    Now how do you upload a video? Had a great day, was made very welcome by the MGOC. Seems the commentator had a fixation on this car, was told he spoke more about it than any other. Obviously I couldn't hear him. What a great track at Castle Combe! I got quicker and quicker, down to 1m 30s per lap by end, not too shabby for a novice. Car was just lovely once we got the isolating switch fixed and thru' scrutineering. I pulled out of the first race as car was getting hot, only to find that all the cars were due the weather! Second race was superb. Mixed grid was a bit disconcerting, some very quick modern MG's were hammering through. Found the love for this car again, next stop Silverstone early August Happy days! Ed
  7. Fantastic Hamish, glad you got there in the end. Ed

    First race of the season next Sunday 7th at Castle Combe. Invitation class with the MGOC. Gulp! I'll be the only Triumph there but the old rivalries are in the past, I hope. Roy - did the photos help? It's difficult trying to photograph the mountings. Cheers Ed
  9. How frustrating for you, feeling your pain.
  10. Sorry for you. Glad you are safe Roy. That's all that counts at the end of the day. Ed

    Evening all, Got the car back today, test day at Castle Combe, really useful afternoon. First time there but I'm really just learning to drive that dog gearbox. Roy/David, both Cobra seats are fitted, I'm 5'7" and in almost the most rearward place they could fit, they are just about perfect for me. If you're much taller then the roll bar stops them being positioned further back. Feel very upright esp with a HANS device. They just fit under the side bars of the cage. I'll take some pictures tomorrow and post them. Cheers Ed

    Plenty of Black ones still available at £210. But black is always slower than red right?
