A fantastic opportunity to acquire this original UK CP series TR5 with only three former keepers.
This competition TR5 has won five TR Register Sprint and hill-climb championships, the most recent being the 2014 season, achieved by the previous owner of this outstanding example. The specification of this TR5 is as follows;
2.7 litre six-cylinder engine built in 2008 with steel con-rods, forged pistons and the crankshaft was tuftrided as well as balanced. Triple Weber 45 DCOE carburettors are fitted, as is a six-into-one exhaust manifold that complies with MSA noise requirements.
The engine has been rebuilt again in 2014 with new bearings and a Classic Racecraft camshaft producing 210bhp at the flywheel. A lightweight starter motor and alternator are fitted in addition to an aluminium radiator.
The transmission is a close ratio (A-Type) with rapid engagement and a Revington logic box. The gearbox and overdrive unit were rebuilt in 2011, all this is mated to a Quaife limited slip differential with a 4.3 ratio.
The net result of the investment into YXC 799F is this is a fantastically competitive car, presented in excellent order.
Road legal and supplied with a V5 registration document together with an MSA logbook and MoT test certificate valid until August 2015.
