Welcome to the TBA Racing Historic RaceTeam Website.
TBA Racing is a Historic Race Car Team comprised of enthusiasts who devote their efforts to their racing.
Work is progressing well on our new HQ in Twickenham, Middlesex. The workshop was upgraded over the New Year break to allow more workspace for our new purchase an historic 1963 Bobsy SR2 Sports Racer with a ford engine, with help from our main sponsors Omega2 Limited.
The Bobsy arrived on these shores in May 2008 from the USA, where it was built and raced all of its life. We believe that this will be the only Bobsy that will be racing outside of the USA or Canada. The recommissioning is well underway the gearbox is striped ready to have a new first gear, selector fork and reverse idler fitted, the front suspension is also stripped and new lower wishbones are being fabricated. A new Lumenition ignition unit has been ordered. Fingers crossed we should be up and running and ready for testing in late June 2008. This season after testing, the car will be raced in the 750MC clubs Sports Racing & GT Challenge to shake down the driver and car. Once the FIA Historic Technical Passport is sorted out we will hopefully be competing in the and the Historic Sports & GT Car Racing Series Masters Racing Series. We are encouraging the drivers to lose a few more pounds as this is a lightweight car.
The 1985 IMSA GTU Porsche 911 body restoration has overrun again from its promised Christmas deadline, so once the Bobsy SR2 is race ready work will be focused on the 1974 Porsche 911 RSR Turbo clone and on a future project.
