About Us

Our Beliefs 

Racetorations is dedicated to providing high-quality automotive work, particularly concerning the Triumph TR2-6 range of sports cars. This continuous commitment to high standards is a pressure felt by all employees from the day they join the company. Some staff have over 30 years of TR experience and are all in-house trained, very few ever leave.

All areas of the Racetorations’ workshops present a calm, clean and professional environment. The combined high work ethic of all employees culminates in production of an outstanding product for which they are all justly proud.

Production doesn’t have to be a whole TR, we have a substantial range of unique parts designed & manufactured in-house. Most of these products enhance the reliability, safety & enjoyment of one or more the Triumph TR2-6 range.

Our customers need to feel that Racetorations’ skills are being employed effectively and to the best of our abilities in pursuit of their personal requirements. If we can achieve this then we imbue them with confidence and enthusiasm and hopefully retain their valuable custom over many years.

Customers Testimonials

I decided to spend my Golden Hand Shake on a Classic Triumph. My second and best decision was to have Racetorations of Gainsborough to look after it over the last 25 years. They are a very efficient and excellent team that I would highly recommend.
