WILL NUTHALL: RIS­ING HIS­TORIC ACE TVR COME­BACK

Motor Sport News - - Goodwood Report -

Mike Whi­taker brought the ex-works TVR Grif­fith ‘BFR 400B’ back to rac­ing at Good­wood af­ter a mighty ef­fort to re­build the car for the Mem­bers’ Meet­ing.

Mar­que ex­pert Nigel Reuben fin­ished the car just in time for a quick shake­down run on Wed­nes­day, but Whi­taker was able to take an en­cour­ag­ing eighth place, de­spite his pace be­ing ham­pered by the early loss of third gear.

Back in 1965, for­mer World War Two pi­lot Tommy En­twistle raced the car at Good­wood and Sun­day’s Gra­ham Hill Tro­phy race was its first race since the end of the 1965 sea­son.
