Triumph TR4 FIA

To Be Auctioned


FIA Triumph TR4 – Professionally prepared and superbly presented, this delightful TR4 fast road/ race car has been the subject of significant recent expenditure.

On offer here is a superb and very versatile TR4 that offers access to some of the best historic motorsport events along with fast road use. ‘817 URU’ is road-legal with a UK V5C and is accompanied by a full FIA/MSA HTP for Class GTS II valid until the end of 2028. The current enthusiast owner bought the car three years ago for £55,000 and has since spent a further £35,000 on the TR maintaining it to the highest of standards.

The TR has been raced at the Spa 6 Hours, Silverstone Classic and Equipe GTS, all very competitively in its class. Independent references can be obtained from well known specialists TTP as well as John Pearson and Rob Cull, the organisers of the Equipe race series. A recent valuation by marque specialists concluded that it has been “beautifully built to a very high standard and far better than most others available. Race cars of this quality are difficult to find.”

It’s really well presented in Sapphire Blue with a matching hard top, white stripes and silver Minilite alloys. The cockpit is tidy with a full cage, Sparco bucket seat, Sabelt full harness, plumbed in ‘Lifeline’ extinguisher and a Momo wheel but, as with any competition car, it’s necessary to check the currency and eligibility of any safety equipment. Further info on the car’s specification, engine build etc. is in the large history file that accompanies the car detailing the significant expenditure and a summary of the recent work is listed here:

2022; Full-race Mass Engine including billet crank and rods and special valves and pistons generating 206bhp with Dyno print outs available. 925kg dry weight so performance is lively. New Clutch, Starter Motor, Differential. Twin Bearing rear axle (BPA). Total suspension overhaul with new shock absorbers, springs and Nylotron bushes all round. New radiator and race distributor. New fuel pumps. Full suspension geometry set- up.

2023/4; Currently at TTP Performance after front and engine bay repainting and a complete engine refresh including two brand new Weber 45 DCOE carburettors. Anything requiring replacement or upgrade for 2024 season has been carried out. In race terms, the TR will be sold with zero miles ready for the 2024 season.

It’s supplied with two sets of wheels (one set has brand new Dunlop L tyres ) as well as ‘ running spares ‘ and, subject to separate negotiation, a spare engine block and cylinder head as well as a back axle.

Representing great value for money when you consider the level of expenditure that’s been lavished on this lovely Triumph in recent years as well as offering the option to drive to the track, race and drive home again (which our vendor has done) this package, in our opinion, is worthy of serious consideration and we welcome your enquiry and inspection at our Race Retro sale.
