Feb 7, 2000 update to the Triumph TR3 project car

TR3 Begins

The work on the Triumph TR3 has started! Vintage racing might be less intense than your average road race, but that doesn’t mean that you can skimp on safety. The casual, low-key nature of vintage racing means that driving talent is mixed at best. In addition, hustling 30- to 40-year-old cars around the track can lead to component failure very quickly if everything isn’t properly looked after.

Tim has been busy installing an ATL fuel cell that was custom-made for the TR3. This particular design doesn’t require any major cutting or fitting, so the Triumph can remain unmolested. We’ve been trying to retain the historic patina of the car, while cleaning and repainting where necessary. The inside of the trunk received a fresh coat of new paint prior to the cell’s installation, but the exterior, for the time being, will remain as it has for the last 30-plus years.
