I was pleased to be contacted by Thomas Voglar about a photo of a Triumph TR2 that competed at Le Mans in 1955. It turns out that Thomas now owns the car and he just finished restoring it! The picture that I included in my post about Triumph TR2 cars is shown below:

In the 1955 Le Mans race Car #28 was the fastest of the three works TR2 cars that were entered and finished. It was driven by Bobbie Dickson and Ninian Sanderson to average speed of 84.4 mph, which resulted in a 14th place finish overall.
Thomas included a link to some other photographs of his car at Le Mans in 1955.

As I noted Thomas just finished restoring Car #28 or as it is typically known by its registration number “PKV 376”. The car has been beautifully restored, as shown in the following pictures.

Recently, at the Ennstal Classic in Austria, Thomas Voglar first presented the restored Triumph TR2. And what was particularly impressive was that Thomas had his car driven at the event by Rauno Aaltonen, one of the great rally drivers.

If you look in the comments section under my post titled “The Triumph TR Cars – The Triumph TR2”, then you will find Thomas’ comment with a link to a number of pictures of Thomas’ car during restoration and at the Ennstal Classic.
