In 2003, the first Triumph factory team for 30 years burst upon the UK road racing scene and secured an historic Isle of Man TT victory. Triumph had launched the TT600 Daytona, a lighter and faster version of its original TT600, for 2003. To promote the Daytona in the ultra-competitive 600cc market, the company contested the UK Supersport championship, signing rising-star teenager Craig Jones and veteran Jim Moodie. The race programme was entrusted to the experienced ValMoto team, run by Jack Valentine and Steve Mellor.

The Daytonas faced stiff opposition on short circuits but Jones gained his first podium finish in 2003's final Supersport round at Donington Park. However, the season's peak achievement was at the TT where New Zealander Bruce Anstey won the Junior race, taking Triumph's first TT victory since Slippery Sam's 750cc Production success in 1975. Team-mates Moodie and John McGuinness finished 9th and 10th respectively, securing Triumph the Manufacturers' Award. A winter of work at ValMoto made the Daytona more competitive in the 2004 Supersport series, as demonstrated by Jones' win at Donington Park.

One of the three used at the 2003 TT, the Daytona offered here was also used by Craig Jones for short circuit events. The Triumph was purchased from ValMoto in 2005 and comes with its purchase receipt. The machine's mechanical condition is not known; accordingly, prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves with regard to its condition, completeness, correctness, or otherwise prior to bidding.
