Ky­nas­ton swaps from mod­ern ma­chin­ery to a Tri­umph TR7 for his re­turn to the forests

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Af­ter four years out of ral­ly­ing, David Ky­nas­ton will re­turn this year to cam­paign a newly pre­pared Tri­umph TR7 V8 in the Bri­tish His­toric Rally Cham­pi­onship.

The Devon-based driver is best known for his as­phalt per­for­mances in a stun­ning Audi A3, but will now switch to his­torics in the Tri­umph that con­tested just one lo­cal event last sum­mer.

“It’s all very un­known, but we’ll do the Red Kite on Fe­bru­ary 21 and see how we get on,” said Ky­nas­ton. “I looked at Es­corts, but they were out of my price range. In­stead, I thought the TR was a good op­tion and there are lots of Rover V8 parts around.”

Ky­nas­ton, who has not ral­lied in the forests for 30 years, will be joined on some events by his brother Paul who plans to do some ral­lies later in the sea­son in his Opel As­cona.
