Tony Pond and Fred Gallagher - Triumph TR7 V8 - 1978 RAC Rally, 4th Place
The TR7 V8 was homologated for international rallying on 1st April 1978 and hopes were high. However, a last minute decision not to disconnect the cable handbrake in favour of the hydraulic one meant that Pond lost time on day one when the mechanism jammed in a wheel. Thereafter, Pond, the one driver who really came to terms with the 300bhp TR7 V8, stormed back though the field to finish 4th, the highest placed non Ford Escort – a great drive in rallying history.
Features of this model include detailed interior, working suspension and authentic badging and livery.
