The Biennial Le Mans Classic takes place this year over the weekend of 4 – 6th July 2014 and proves to once again be one of the most impressive festivals of historic motorsport anywhere in the world. This year the event has particular significance with a team of three TR’s entered in a line up reminiscent of what racing fans would have seen Standard Triumph enter during the 1950’s at la Sarthe.
Overall this represents the opportunity for visitors to Le Mans Classic 2014 to see over nine hours of TR’s driven on the limit at the legendary Le Mans circuit throughout the day and night.
The Parts Quality Initiative aims to build a structure in which parts quality concerns can be managed with the specialist suppliers such that both we and they may take appropriate actions to keep our classic Triumph TRs on the road, reliably and safely.
We aim to help identify major parts related issues through the use of feedback from TR Register members. To accumulate, compile and analyse factual information in order to work with suppliers to identify and replace problem components in their ranges. This will enable the suppliers continually to improve their offerings to TR Register members with the support of the TR Register car club.”
Clearly, we require the assistance of our members in this initiative. However we do expect that any transactions will have been entered and completed in “good faith” by both parties, with constructive dialogue and efforts made, and recorded if necessary, to resolve individual issues and problems.The PQI is not aligned to individual problems; it will remain focused on broad quality issues and represents a natural progression for the Spares Development Fund.

Phil Tucker, Chris Hale and Bob Eccles formed the “articles team” charged with the task to collate and incorporate the feedback from the draft articles published in TR Action 271.
