Triumph to compete in MN Circuit series
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.
