Higgs to relish year with Triumph TR7
Shropshire garage owner David Higgs has realised a long-term ambition by acquiring a Triumph TR7 V8 for historic stage rallying.
Higgs has driven a Hondapowered Metro 6R4 derivative in demonstration events but spent this season doing a few events ahead of a trip to the Isle of Man in September. He plans a fuller season of asphalt events in 2017.
He bought the car owned by Rob Weir and driven by Graham Elsmore on the 2015 Rally Isle of Man. “This is what I wanted to do,” said Higgs. “Tony Pond was a hero and the car is in the livery he used when he won the 1980 Manx.”
