Brexit rule changes, how they affect you the customer

With the start of 2021 we have of course left the EU, with this there are a number of changes which we have had to make to fall in line with the new rules.

(1) All EU customers will not be charged  VAT by TTR, the goods will be sent at a net price minus taxes.

(2) All of our products will have an Intrastat commodity code on all invoices.

(3) All of our products will have a net weight on all invoices.

(4) Our EORI number will be present on all invoices.

(5) You the customer will be charged the duty/taxes on receipt of the goods based on the current rate in your country at the time of the transaction.

We anticipate there may be delays in courier delivery times due to the changes being implemented and may be a period of stream lining systems to cater for these delays.

Most importantly we are committed to supply to all of our customers in the world with the same efficient service you are all accustomed to.


CHRISTMAS BREAK. TTR LTD close 24 December until Monday 4 January 2021.

We would like to thank you our customers old and new for your support and custom through this very difficult year. Amazingly we managed to remain open every day through the pandemic. We have invested in new systems to be compliant with Covid-19 and ensure that we can supply our customers from a work place that is as safe as possible.
Let us all hope that 2021 brings rapid vaccination so that we may all start to resume the joys of racing and using our lovely classic cars and all the things we have missed.
We wish all our customers a safe and happy new year and hope to be able to see many of you at the race meetings.
Our best wishes.
Tony, Eddie, Stuart and Tom.

Up to a quality, not down to a price.

We at Tony Thompson pride ourselves on quality and reliability of our products, we have a saying

“Up to a quality not down to a price”

Tony has worked tirelessly over the years in product development predominantly for the Race market but has further developed into the Fast road area. We know the importance of reliability and fit first time, time is precious and revisiting an annoying knock or vibration can be costly and frustrating to find a new part has failed prematurely. Time out on the Race track is great and exhilarating, having the confidence in the car is key and Tony has engineered his components to withstand the rigours of a racing environment and the strength to compete at the top level.

When you are thinking of purchasing from TTR we are on hand to advise the best solution to your requirements and once you buy from us we offer great after sales, if you have a question on fitment, advice on upgrades or a technical issue we continue to support you. Tony has many years of experience and is actively available for technical assistance and advice, something we believe is a unique facet to our business.

A tribute to Zeb

A Tribute to Zeb.

Eddie’s lovely dog who passed away last Friday 7 February aged 10.

Zeb entered Ed’s life as young dog who had a difficult start in life with several homes before they met up. The bond was instant and two lives were changed completely. Ed suddenly learnt responsibility, he progressed from rather a wild young man into a caring adult, he adored Zeb, or Hank as he usually called him. We all fell for Zeb’s easy charm and funny ways.

We are pleased to announce the long awaited arrival of our new SG iron centre gearbox cases, we have relied on donor gearboxes to use the iron cases in the past, but these have become harder to find. There has been an increase in demand due to FIA requirements to run an iron main case in race events. The centre case is made from a top grade iron material much stronger than the original, this product will now future proof our ability to supply new build gearboxes long into the future.
