Mike Read - VIC
TR2 - 1954 model
This car has been sold to
Odath Weerasinghe
This is Mike's TR2 - it had been stored on blocks from 1970 to 1995 and at that stage ground up restoration was done by Jim Beswick in 1995/96.

Mileage when purchased by Mike was 65,066 miles (7.1.98)

Here, the car and Mike are at the TSOA Concours in Melbourne 1999

The following photo shows world famous driver Mike Read with that other fairly well known Formula 1 driver ...
JACQUES VILLENEUVE

The photo was taken at the Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park (Melbourne) when TRs were used to ferry the drivers in the parade lap before the race. (photo taken by Mike's wife's hairdresser who is a fan of Jacques and didn't realise it was Mike's car ... crazy coincidence no. 348!)
