2012 update: We only raced the TVR once this year. I changed to a taller rear gear ratio for Road America - turns out that was a very good addition, but now we need alittle more horsepower. Next owner please step up. In the tradition of race car 'Specials' that were built in the 1950's and 60's both in the United States and in Europe - I have created this road racing prototype using Truimph TR4 powertrain, driveline, and braking components. Using TVR's many experiments as a guide and as inspiration I have created a car that fits nicely in the 60's both mechanically and in appearance. TVR sold many of their cars as kits back in the day leaving engine and drivetrain to the individual builder. This car is powered with a Triumph TR4 engine (last used by Triumph in 1967) that has been bored to 2188cc. The carburetors are 1 3/4" S.U. also sourced from Triumph and used in the 50's and 60's on the TR3 and 4. The transmission is a stock TR4 unit, and the differential is TR4A from an IRS car with a factory 3.73:1 gear set on a Detroit locker carrier. Triumph introduced independent rear suspension (IRS) with the TR4A in 1965 and built that model until 1967. The brakes are stock TR4 caliper/rotor units in the front and TR4 drums in the rear. 15"x6" alloy wheels with Hoosier Speedster tires work well with the Triumph/TVR package. TVR's were historically built as fiberglass coupes on hand made tubular steel chassis with a coil over spring arrangement on all four corners - as with this TVR. Included in the car are the required features for vintage racing today - roll cage, belts, fuel cell, etc. Please view all detailed information and photos at www.britishracecar.com/DennisDeLap-TVR-2200.htm This was a two year build - starting with an M chassis in 2008 - finished and raced once in the fall of 2010 at Road America. Raced three times in 2011 and is ready for the 2012 season.
