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