The Biennial Le Mans Classic takes place this year over the weekend of 4 – 6th July 2014 and proves to once again be one of the most impressive festivals of historic motorsport anywhere in the world. This year the event has particular significance with a team of three TR’s entered in a line up reminiscent of what racing fans would have seen Standard Triumph enter during the 1950’s at la Sarthe. Overall this represents the opportunity for visitors to Le Mans Classic 2014 to see over nine hours of TR’s driven on the limit at the legendary Le Mans circuit throughout the day and night.
Penrite Oils are supporting the three-car entry this year ahead of the launch of a new range of oils aimed specifically at the Triumph TR range of sports cars to go on sale in the TR Register Shop from July.
TR Register members will be able to follow the team’s progress right here on these pages throughout the race weekend via live blogs, tweets, podcasts and videos released track side.
The team of three cars have already been wowing crowds with appearances at the Revington TR open day and in April underwent pre-race testing as part of the TR Register track day at Castle Coombe. Whilst just a shake down test at this stage the Castle Coombe test gave the public an early opportunity to see the cars in action before they head to La Sarthe this weekend.
Hear about how the Team came about and the relationship with Penrite with this video, captured at the Castle Coombe test day:
