The competition preparation manual, page 20, regarding ignition systems;

As the later US version of the Spitfire 1500 is fitted with Lucas electronic
ignition designed to meet emission requirements, for racing purposes it will
be necessary to change the distributor. Use distributor, Part #313232, which
is a points type distributor with the added advantage of a mechanical
tachometer drive. This enables you to use a mechanical tachometer which has
proven over the long run to be more reliable than its electronic
