1970 Triumph TR6

1970 Triumph TR6


This 1970 Australian private import, 150 bhp car, was first purchased by the present Brisbane owner in June 1971 at 9,500 miles and has now had five owners, the current owner being the second and fifth custodian.

Sold in 1980, the car had been re-found in Central Queensland, in 1990, and after restoration including the retro fitting of a factory overdrive and hardtop, was CAMS log booked Historic Group Sb in 1999. Since then, the TR6 has competed in a wide variety of motor sport events on the eastern seaboard, South Australian and WA circuits. Notably, this is a rare historic racer never having had its mechanical or suspension specification altered from factory original. Indeed, this car still runs lever arm, rear shock absorbers! The only non-standard body work additions are mandatory safety measures such as a Motorsport Australia registered ‘bolt-in’ roll hoop by Norm Singleton Automotive.  Being ‘un-stressed’ this 50-year-old historic race car has only ever needed routine maintenance.

The car’s last outing was the July 2023 HRCC National Historics at Qld Raceway, 24 years after the same driver/car combination ran together in their first ever race meet, at this very same circuit in 1999. Interestingly, the two old stagers performed faultlessly and times on the National Circuit and Clubman circuit, a generation later, were almost identical.
