The Adelaide Classic Rally

 

Triumph Rover spares Ian Wilson slayed some Porsches on his way to finishing 6th in the 2006 Adelaide Classic Rally. A fantastic effort demonstrating the performance and reliability of the TRS prepared car.

 

 

One of only 3 cars not sporting a Porsche badge in the top 15, the car proved to be a crowd favourite and certainly, popular opinion was that the 8 throttle 550hp engine was the sweetest sounding car in the 180 odd vehicle field. An outstanding effort considering the crew did no reconnaisance and navigator Darren Lee jumped into the co-drivers seat only a week before the event. Check out this cars stage times throughout the event at Classic Adelaide.

Like so many other TR Race cars in Australia, this car was built from ground up using our race winning 5.0 litre stroker V8 motor combination with Wildcat heads, Roller cam, 4 stage dry sump and managed by a Haltech E11 Engine management system. Coupled with a Holinger 5 speed gearbox, power makes its way to the ground via a Borg warner LSD and our own hand fabricated suspension system. The TR8 is an outstanding showcase of the quality and success of TRS in the Motorsport scene in Australia.

We have an enviable reputation, boasting reliability and unsurpassed horsepower per litre over our competitors.

This reputation only comes through decades of development and hands on participation in the sport, truly being our greatest point of difference within the industry. Please look at V8 Engine Developments and Motorsport Parts.

 

“Baby” 3.5 V8 Engine

Fitted with a “baby” 3.5 litre V8 engine, we can reliably produce over 650 flywheel horsepower on 25 psi of boost rammed in from the GT35/40 turbocharger. This car is a promotional and Drag racing vehicle, having achieved 11.1 second quarter mile times at over 130mph to date. The car is a perfectly streetable vehicle and utilises a TRS Toyota 5 speed conversion and Borg Warner Diff conversion.

Once again, this engine is also managed by a Haltech engine management system which allows us to run direct fire ignition and sequential injection.

TR7 V8 classic rally car

TRS has a new addition to its stable of thoroughbred race cars. We are currently building a new TR7 V8 classic rally car for competition in Tarmac Rally events throughout Australia.
