British Cars Built for Racing

British Parts Northwest Classic Car Racing

Vintage Sports Car Racing is something that many British car enthusiasts may find of interest.  There are several classic British cars that were built specifically for racing and we wanted to highlight a few of those cars.

Austin Healey- The Austin Healey was one of the most popular British racing cars. It was raced by the Donald Healey Motor Company in Europe at Le Mans and in Sebring in the U.S . The last Big Healey to win an SCCA National Championship was the class E Production Austin-Healey 100-6 driven by Alan Barker at the Daytona ARRC in 1965. You can find parts for several Austin Healey models here at BP.

Jaguar- There were multiple models of the Jaguar that were involved in racing, including the C-Type, D-Type, E-Type, XJ13, XJ-C, XJ41 and XJ42. If you are the proud owner of an E-Type, you can get parts for your car, right here from our website!

Land Rover- There are a couple of modified Land Rovers that have competed in off-road racing, specifically the Dakar Rally and the Camel Trophy.

MG- In the MG family, the MGA, MGB, and Midget (MG Midget Racing Coupes) all had models that participated in racing. The MGA had considerable success, racing extensively in the U.S. There were MGBs that were specially tuned for racing, which achieved success including a Grand Touring category victory in the 1965 Monte Carlo Rally. There were 3 Midgets that were ordered by MG racing driver, Dick Jacobs. The cars were campaigned from 1962-1964. We have parts for the MGA, MGB and the Midget, in addition to other models of the MG.

Triumph- The Triumph Spitfire and GT6 both had models that were built for racing. We proudly carry parts for both of these Triumph models, in addition to other Triumphs!
