Triking History

The Triking concept is a contemporary sports car inspired by the classic Morgan type cycle cars from the 1920s era. The first Triking was designed and built in the 1970s by company founder, draftsman and technical artist, Tony Divey. Tony`s enthusiasm for three wheelers and his time spent working closely with Colin Chapman at Lotus Cars culminated in his design for the Triking. This was a blend of proven design principles and race-bred technology.

The first Triking was completed in 1977 and rapidly earned a reputation as a unique combination of precision engineering, attractive design and a highly capable sporting car. Attention from motoring press and public alike has always been immensely positive.

Production was quickly commenced in Norfolk. As well as a successful road-going sports tourer, Trikings firmly established themselves in competition. Purpose-built competition cars were regularly campaigned in motor sport events such as rallies, hill climbs and sprints.

Customers followed suit including entries to prestigious events such as the Brighton Speed Trials. Competition improved the breed and inspired a range of detail improvements to the original concept.

Engineer Alan Layzell joined Triking in 1989 and now runs the company following Tony’s retirement
