  • This is the pressure of the air inside the tyre, it can be measured in pounds per square inch PSI or Bar. Correct pressure for tyres is designed to aid fuel economy as well as safety as under or over inflated tyres can affect the handling of your vehicle.

ROAD TESTING THE TRIMPH TR7 1980
ROAD TESTING THE TRIMPH TR7 1980
BY JOHN B. BALL – ILLUSTRATED BRISTOL NEWS. Warm summer weather invariably turns most people’s thoughts to sports cars and holidays. And there’s precious few of the former still produced, due, mainly, to the pressures of the safety regulations now in force, particularly in the United States, where the major market for open cars exists and where success, or lack of it, dictates the continuing production (or lack of it!) of any open car. The difficulties of these regulations meant that British Leyland introduced their hard top Triumph TR7 long before the soft top. Nevertheless, finally launched it has been and British customers now have the benefit of this choice. I have been recently testing the soft top version, courtesy of sports car enthusiast and British Leyland dealer Richard Williams. To start with let me say that I think the open version is far more attractive than its hard top sister. And I am not alone — most of the people I spoke to said the same. But looks are not everything, except for the few really hardened posers! The TR7 proved to be a very practical motor car; the weather during my test was somewhat mixed and the effectiveness of the hood was tried. Down, the wind noise as obvious as one might expect but not so much that a conversation couldn’t be held in normal voice at 70 m.p.h., and with the hood up, the car was acceptably quiet — no single covering of rubberised canvas (at least, I think this was what it was) will ever do the job of heavily insulated steel, but even at top speed normal conversation was possible and the dulcet tones of the stereo cassette player/radio were uninterrupted. Putting the hood up or down was a simple operation requiring two or three minutes activity — basically, just pop off the press studs pinning down the rear of the hood, pull to levers at the top of the windscreen, fold back and cover up with a neat little cover. One of the big differences in construction from the heyday of the sports car in the 1930’s is that modern cars are almost always built on a monocoque chassis. This means that the roof forms part of the bracing and when the soft top — hardly the stuff for high tensile loadings — is used then the rest of the bodyshell must take up the strain, normally with a little bit of help from some bracing. The usual end result is that sports cars tend to be a little floppy compared with their hard top brethren and the TR7 is no exception. Nevertheless, it feels soundly constructed and although the odd rattle is evident, particularly over rough surfaces, there’s nothing untoward. The TR7 has exactly the same mechanical details as the hard top version; 2 litre four cylinder engine; five speed gear box with an excellent, very light and slick gear change; front suspension using Macpherson struts and rear suspension with four link arrangement and coil springs; and a disc front drum rear braking system which was more than man enough for the job. So haw did it drive? Peculiarly, at lower speeds the car seemed very harsh in its ride. But the faster one went, the smoother things became. Handling was very good, with the soft top contributing towards a very low centre of gravity which in turn made for very high limits in cornering power. The eventual breakaway was fairly neutral, all four wheels sliding at once unless the rears were provoked first by the throttle. In the wet I was less impressed; still very controllable, but the Goodyear G800 tyres were less than brilliant in their adhesion. The engine pulled well from low speeds — pottering along at only 1500 revs in fifth gear was no problem, with the car pulling cleanly way. At the top end high revs were really irrevelant as th~ maximum power was produced at a modest 5500 and anything beyond is not only slower but feels uncomfortable! Top speed was around 115mph with a 0-60 mph time of almost exactly 10 seconds. Not exactly shattering but more than adequate for modern conditions. A big bonus was a fuel consumption of just 30mpg overall, including a large percentage of hard driving and cruising consumption emphasised by the fifth gear of over 35mpg at 70mph. Impressive figures for a two litre motor car of any type. The Triumph TR7 costs around ?6,100 on the road. Frankly there’s not a lot of choice in the sports car market these days and for my money the TR7 must be on the short list.
Michelin Building Chelsea: Art Nouveau - Art Deco
Michelin Building Chelsea: Art Nouveau - Art Deco
DSC02465 BIBENDUM Restaurant Michelin House - 81 Fulham Road - London SW3 6RD - Tel: 020 7581 5817 The Michelin Building, commissioned by the Michelin Tyre Company Ltd. as their first permanent British headquarters in 1909, has been a favourite London landmark for many years. Its exuberant stylistic individualism has been variously described as an example of Art Nouveau, proto-Art-Deco, Secessionist Functionalism and geometrical Classicism. It has even been described as 'the most completely French of any Edwardian building in London'! Designed by an employee of the company, probably under the guidance of Edouard and Andre Michelin, it owes more to the imagination, vivacity and outrageously irreverent flair for public relations of these two men than to any notion of the architectural taste of its time. In 1985 Michelin moved out of the building and in June of that year it was bought by Sir Terence Conran and Paul Hamlyn. It now has a gastro restaurant on the first floor specialising in sea food and on the ground floor it has a more informal bistro - cafe. The open space facing the street is used as a sea food market. --------------------------------- The architect behind Michelin House was Francois Espinasse (1880-1925), who was employed as an engineer in the construction department at Michelin’s headquarters in Clermount-Ferrand. It is believed that he worked on the design of Michelin's Headquarters in Paris (1908), but this is the only other known architectural work of his. The French Order of Architects in Paris have no record of him. Not much else is known about him other than he spent most of his working life at Michelin. Michelin House is known for its decorative design. What cannot be seen from its exterior or interior design is that it is an early example of concrete construction in Britain. The building was constructed using Hennebique's ferro-concrete construction system. The ferro-concrete system offered great benefits for the construction of clear open spaces (ideal for storing tyres in the most efficient way). It also offered fire resistance properties which were very important when storing large quantities of highly flammable tyres. The system also had the advantage of quick construction; Michelin House took only 5 months to build. The original floors were constructed using hole pot tiles. This flooring system as well as being highly durable also offered very good fire proofing qualities. Other interesting original features in Michelin House were automatic doors into the entrance hall and a weighing bay in the fitting area which weighed customers' cars so the correct tyre pressure could be applied.
