I have found this photo online (see citation), showing a Triumph Spitfire MkIII (1300ccm), as far as I can tell, completely stock, small 3.5 steel wheels, bumper, windscreen and a normal ride height.  The rear axle on massiv negative camber in the typical "tuck in". Only the origin of the photo, the bumper on the door and the driver's helmet let you believe, that this car, in this spec was actually taking part in a race.

And across the pond...

...racetracks in the USA, for example Group44, saw a lot of (white) Spitfires used, with modifications to improve cornering, reducing drag, wide rims,... a stunning comparison.
