Tri­umph to com­pete in MN Cir­cuit se­ries

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

A unique Tri­umph TR7 will make its Mo­tor­sport News Cir­cuit Rally Cham­pi­onship de­but at Brands Hatch later this month.

The car will be driven by Alas­tair Flack of Hamil­ton Mo­tor­sport, who has 17 years of ral­ly­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

“The last time I com­peted in it was June, at the Abing­don Car­ni­val,” ex­plained Flack. “We melted the en­gine, but it was only the se­cond out­ing for the car and it’s still very much in its in­fancy. We re­built the en­gine and it’s all sorted now.

“We’ll hope­fully be do­ing the rest of the cham­pi­onship. We have an en­try for Brands and two weeks af­ter that we’re go­ing to Good­wood.”

Flack has plenty of ex­pe­ri­ence with TR7S, but this is the most mod­i­fied car he has yet built.

“It’s my fourth TR. I de­cided that all the mod­i­fi­ca­tions I had dreamed of putting in the last one should go into this one. It’s 300bhp and very en­ter­tain­ing,” he added.
