       UPDATED ----->                      In March of 2006 I found a car tucked under a tarp in a tiny town just south of me in the Hudson Valley. I thought I recognized the shape as an old TVR and further investigation proved that suspicion. My initial attempts to purchase the car were unsuccessful, but early in 2007 the TVR's current owner and I came to an agreement. What I thought would be an interesting restoration project has turned into an archeological expedition. The car had a roll cage and racing tires so I thought it might have been raced at some time. After much work to uncover this car's provenance and history, I found that it raced all the time! During this process I have talked to dozens of friendly and helpful people who have not only made this project possible, but an absolute blast. I have gathered receipts, race documents, photos, and more. The car is 99% restored now. It has been an amazing year (2015) with 2 Best of Show awards and other recognitions. I still spend a large portion of time continuing to trace it's history. I am up to 33 races I can prove it entered and raced. We believe it did 55-60 races total.

I invite you to continue to join me on my journey. My intent is to share as much information and entertainment as I can. I expect this to be a continuing process for quite some time. Stop back as I post detailed logs, documents, photos,      videos, and anything else I can come up with related to the TVR Grantura MKIIa!
