The Triumph TR250K is one of a kind.  It was built as a prototype to compete with the Porsche 911 at the 1968 Sebring Races by Triumph Director of Motorsports Kas Kastner and designer Peter Brock.  It led the 911s for the first three hours, but then a failed mag wheel took out a brake caliper and the lack of replacement parts forced it to retire.

John and son Charlie were amazed and fascinated by the car at Road America.
