TRIUMPH COMPETITION PLANS
Two recent appointments in the Triumph Company give an indication of the scope of the programme scheduled for next year in the competitive side of motoring. First of all, Mr. Donald Healey, one of England’s leading trials and rally exponents, has been appointed experimental manager. Incidentally Healey is thus returning to his early love, so to speak, for it was on a Triumph that he scored his first international success. This was in the Monte Carlo Rally of 1930, when starting from Tallinn with a Super Seven, he made best British performance and finished seventh in the general classification. Shortly afterwards, on the same
car, he was also successful in the Barcelona Rally.
At the same time Mr. Jack Ridley, who is well known in competition circles and was a member of one of the British teams which won a Coupe des Alpes in the recent Alpine Trials, has joined the Company as competition manager.
