Joking aside, what a brilliant time to be racing a TVR. The brand has made much of its commitment to motorsport with the new car and, while this is very different to a GTE-spec racer at Le Mans, the excitement around TVRs should only grow in the coming years. New TVRs will be racing, old TVRs will be racing, and all of them will be making a wonderful racket. Should be a nice thing to be a part of!
Moreover, this car ties in rather well with a point made on these pages recently: it's a cheap racing car, one that promises a huge amount of entertainment on circuit without breaking the bank. At £10K, this 350i is cheaper than any Griffith you can currently find and only a little more than most other roadgoing 350s. One car has 2,000 miles fewer than this one and is £500 more. But you won't be first in class with that one!
Cheap racing doesn't mean a badly maintained racing car, either. In fact, it's exactly how you would want your competition vehicle: tatty yet presentable on the outside (fine to be biffed on track then), yet well sorted underneath (so it should be reliable). There are some really high quality parts in here too, with Nitron adjustable suspension, Sparco seats and Compomotive wheels. And with nine months MoT you could even drive it to the races if you wanted, though it might be a tad noisy...
Because what else is there? Cheaper racing cars tend to be four-cylinder and plainer, cheaper road cars won't be suitable for track. Go on, give it a try; if you're good enough maybe there'll be a call up to that factory racing team!
Why you should: Road legal TVR racing car for £10K!
Why you shouldn't: You're on the wrong website
