Concours D'Elegance, Pride of Ownership and Standard Triumph Survivors
ENTRIES NOW BEING TAKEN FOR CONCOURS D'ELEGANCE, PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP AND STANDARD TRIUMPH SURVIVORS 2017
TR REGISTER INTERNATIONAL WEEKEND: 7 - 9 JULY 2017
For 2017, the TR Register International Weekend returns to the Malvern Showground nestled in the Malvern Hills, Worcestershire and the venue of choice for many club members. The facilities at Malvern are excellent and lend themselves perfectly for the most prestigious event in the club's calendar. As an extra bonus, the beautiful surrounding Worcestershire andHerefordshire countryside is steeped in history with many places of interest to visit.
Avon Hall will host the Meguiars' Concours, Pride of Ownership and the Protek Engineering Triumph Survivors Display, where the very best examples of TRs, Derivatives, Triumph Survivors and other Triumphs will compete for the coveted titles and trophies.
You can enter in advance via the TR Register website where you can complete the Entry Form and download Class Rules and Guidance, Scoring Criteria and specimen Marking Sheets.
You can also enter before 12 pm (noon) Saturday. Entries after this time will not be accepted, so please do not leave entry to the last minute as it will be very busy on Saturday afternoon. If you have entered in advance please register Avon Hall as soon as possible on the Saturday as this will take a little time.
Concours Hall Access
Avon Hall will be open on Friday 2 to 6 pm, Saturday between 9am and 6pm and Sunday 9am to 4 pm. Due to the likelihood of limited space in the hall, once Concours entries are positioned movement of cars may not be possible until the awards presentation on Sunday. Cars will be secured in Avon Hall overnight on Friday and Saturday.
Judging and Awards Ceremony
Judging will take place between 3pm and 6pm on Saturday. Judging may last up to 30 minutes and hoods, Surrey tops and sidescreens are to be erected/fitted and the spare wheel is to be removed before judging. You may be asked to stow the hood/Surrey section or remove the sidescreens during judging.

Protek Engineering Triumph Survivor Display: A Display of Original Unrestored Triumphs and Derivatives
So what is a Triumph 'survivor'? A survivor is a car which is substantially original and unrestored from when it left the factory (e.g. original panels, paint, interior, engine etc) and the display will give members and the public an opportunity to see close up Triumphs and derivatives that have survived the ravages of time and have avoided restoration, some for over 50 years!
Why are there so few Triumph 'survivors' around? Our cars started rusting from the day they drove off out of the showroom; some even started rusting before they left the factory! Many original unrestored Triumphs have been restored over the years and original cars made the perfect basis for a restoration in an endless pursuit of cosmetic perfection. However, times have changed and like classic works of art or antique furniture original unrestored cars are now being appreciated for the place in motoring history they occupy.
So, if you own a Triumph or a derivative 'Survivor' and would like to be part of the Triumph Survivor display then please enter online or download the Car Information Sheet and email it to Andrew Smith at: TriumphSurvivor@gmail.com.
