It did a few hundred yards and then stopped. So why the history speculation? We asked the Triumph service crews and others we knew to solve it, but no solution.

Brian Moylan in “Works Rally Mechanic” refers to assisting “Roy Fidler’s privately-prepared Triumph” at their works service point at Titograd wrongly-fitted shock absorber protection plate. I tried very hard to find the cause of the problem.

Only another 16, miles and 25 countries to go. Contact via “Ecurie Cod Fillet”? Further to my original post, here is an extract from the ECF Dec jum. So fast forward 30 years and a story about car number 1 turns up, the story is that it was seriously “rodded” with a live rear axle, huge drag strip V8 inserted and was frighteningly quick.

However, I repaired the engine and suspension onand fitted the new shell with the parts from in their entirety, replacing only damaged parts with their correct parts, only from BL Competition dept. That’s probably where I got the idea from.

Might be irelavant but thought i’d contribute from my knowledge of the in Posted 23 November – A minor suspension trouble meant a rush into Sofia, so we had to top up with Bulgarian petrol. On the flat — slow. Anyone got any views of it at all?

Told some interesting stories of Mr B-M’s generosity on a night out when he and Benson were signed on to crew the car. Even finding the entry list is difficult.

The thread is all about the history of the Triumph 2. It failed to get to South America and was driven back from Nice I think with it’s rear suspension broken to get parked up at Abingdon. Now, the Marathon car came to Australia with two Traco F85 Oldsmobile V8 engines, so there must have been a Rover engine lying around somewhere.

This was purchased by a Mr George Ji, having been persuaded by Adrian Lloyd-Hirst, he, in turn, having been persuaded to make the pitch by my co-driver, Keith Baker. There could have been a few Repco engines around.

Must be the weather.
