Record breaking TR2 breaks cover

This TR2 is the car that achieved Triumph’s 124.8mph Jabbeke speed record in 1953 - a then record for any 2.0-litre production car. Modified and driven by Ken Richardson, the TR2 has a number of changes, with a metal tonneau cover, belly pan and rear-wheel spats. The TR2 only managed 104.8mph on its first run, only for Richardson to discover that it was running on three-cylinders due to a loose spark plug lead. The next run took the record, which was previously held by Stirling Moss and Sunbeam Alpine.
