Comments I had a Turner mark III for a few years from maybe 1979 to 82 in Mahwah N.J. tore it down to the frame, started to restore it but didnt get far. I remember it being picked up on a trailer and taken away. Would love if any members know of it. It was yellow. Thanks.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Russel & company for all the hard work that goes in setting up
and maintaining this web site

I needed information on The Turner Sports car

It all started in the early 60's in south africa when I first saw one and did not know what it was

It took nearly 40 years to find out
what make it was

Thanks to the encouragement of Russel we are now busy with the history of
the Turner Sports car in South Africa

As we go along we will report in to the boss Mr Russel

I am sure it will be put on the web

Regards

CommentsHi Today I met Mr and Mrs Hill and saw their pale blue BMC powered Turner. We met on the Brecon Mountain Railway 22nd June 2015 and was nice to see and talk to dedicated people keeping this marque on the road, good for them. I'm a mini man myself but would convert to a Turner if I could find one! Regards Chris Jenkins

CommentsLovely site which reminded me of a bloke I used to know who raced a Superspeed engined Turner (Mk2?) in the 1960s. His name was John (?) Hamilton and used to drive his car to meetings all over the UK then race.
We worked together at Fords Dagenham in 1965 I think. Anybody know if his car survives?

CommentsI owned EWP310C in from 1967 to 1969.
The car was blue with wire wheels and was powered by a 1650cc Superspeed GTS2 engine, producing 130 bhp.
The sad looking red car has so many differences to the one I owned I find it hard to believe that it is the same vehicle

CommentsAs a youngster I can remember seeing my first Turner in the flesh at the Nottingham dealer "Teds Motors" on Huntingdon Street where I went to school, the only dealer signage was some clear perspex signs haning on chrome chains that included the Turner bandge and the Turner name.
The showroom at the junction of where Huntingdon St joins Mansfield Rd still exists but alas not selling cars anymore just secondhand furniture and looking down at heel.

CommentsHi, I owned and raced a Mk 3 Turner
#65-628 prior to moving from Virginia to an Island in the NW of Washington.
After boating for two years i realized that boats do not replace Vintage racing, especially in Turners. Two weeks ago I saw the Mk 1 Turner #60-415 advertised on the East coast, made a quick cross country flight,purchased the car and it is being transported to Lopez island now. I am looking forward to racing it with the Sovren club.
