After many successful years of historic rally action, the Jersey Rally this year ended in tragedy for the well - known and much loved Triumph TR7 V8 of Alastair Flack. 

Alastair Flack and his co-driver Nick Starkey had been running well in the early stages of the Jersey Rally and despite some much more modern machinery, fought their way up to 12th position in class, 18th overall. 

However, during the night stages, Alastair and Mick were navigating the notorious St Clements stage when the accident happened. The TR hit coolant and debris  left on the course by a previous competitor. It slid, hit the banking at high speed which broke the suspension before the car barrel rolled onto its roof.  The pair were lucky to escape un-hurt, but for sore necks in the morning - but sadly the car was not so lucky.

Alastair's TR regualarly gives passenger rides to motorsport fans, raising thousands of pounds for charity at events such as the TR International Weekend for the Air Ambulance and Cystic Fibrosis Trust and CAR-nival and Bruntingthorpe fundraisers. 

Alastair says; "The roof is crushed and the car needs numerous body panels now, as well as the bodyshell re-straightened on a jig. We would appreciate the help of our supporters to undertake the restoration and repair work now required so that the car may get out and entertain once again very soon." 

Fans of the Triumph TR7 V8 will be able to see the vehicle at this November's NEC Classic Motor Show and next February's Race Retro event. It will be an opportunity not only to see the car but also hear from Alastair about the incident! 

To give our supporters chance to help with bringing the car back, the team are offering up space on the rebuilt car to carry signatures, names and even company logos in return for a small donation to help with the car's restoration. For every donation made via this page , there are giveaways that follow in the form car stickers and money off vouchers to baseball caps and free advertising for your brand. You will also be able to see where the car is competing and keep up to date with the latest rally results via regular email updates and the new Hamilton Classic website launching soon. 

So, please show your support and help us get this legendary TR back to rallying - hopefully with your name on it!
