Because you have two banks no2 is no1 for ignition timing.  If you haven't got a Haynes or Workshop manual I would strongly suggest begging, stealing or borrowing one for all of this type of information.

For some reason Triumph timed the engine off no 2 but the firing order starts with no 1. Provided the rotor arm is pointing at no 2 when that cylinder is at TDC on the firing stroke, then just follow the firing order round the dizzy cap, starting at 2 and ending at 1, making sure you go the right way round!
Interestingly the Rover V8 is also timed off the front left cylinder, but that is no 1 due to the stagger on the two cylinder banks being the other way round, and the rovers dizzy rotates the other way too

Because that cylinder is No.1 on a Sprint & 1850?

So why not call it No1 instead of No2?

Because the cylinder referred to as No.1 is physically ahead of No.2
