Austrian Racing Spitfire
Due to the Lenham Spitfire4 I came across almost 10 ago in a barn in Austria, my interest was sparked. As it turned out, not only did find something about this particular car, but about other Triumph Spitfires as well. During the years 1964 to 1967 a few racers used Triumph Spitfire competing in racing events in Austria. Most of them ware not professionally prepared for racing, with at least 3 of them worth a closer look.
Eastern Bloc Motorsport
As a result of owning a early Skoda MTX 1-01, my interest in what happend over there, only one hour to the east, while Lauda, Marko or Rindt raced on the Asparn Airfield track outside of Vienna was sparked. Taking parts a events, buying literature, old car magazines, manuals and book, combined with learning a bit of Czech and I was all in.
Triumph Spitfire Hardtops
During my research on my own Lenham Hardtop, I started to collect photographs and advertisements of fiberglass hardtops you could buy in period for your Triumph Spitfire. Since then, I'm trying to bring some structure into this topic and creating an overview of products and companies.
