Mk1 2.5 P.I. saloon racing at last weekend's Oulton Park Gold Cup.


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

an interesting MK1 P.I. (as was) racing.

From what I saw a very well built car but with a Ford Falcon 4 litre six cylinder engine fitted. This was located quite far back in the engine bay and appeared to have a similar mdification that David Vizard suggests in his book on tuning Triumphs. This is to machine the head to down draught the inlet tracts.

It seemed to run well and sounded lovely but was rather outcalssed in teh field he was in.

Racing?   When, where, which series?

PS OoopS Just noticed thread title!      Would that have been in the Tony Sugden Trophy, for Special Saloons and Modsports?  "177, Roy Davis, Triumph PI" Organised by the CSCC, which fills me with joy as that's the club I race with, or would if I can get the damned car working.  He might be out in other meetings of the CSCC!

And the CSCC tell me that he is entered at their meeting at Donington, 10-11th September.

Because they had one at Oulton's Gold Cup meeting, there isn't a Special Saloons race at the CSCC Oulton meet on the 29th August.

PS I'm entered for the 29th! Swinging 60s, Group 2.  Fingers crossed!
