Two new appointments have been made to volunteer roles within key roles at the TR Register Car Club.
New Events Director
The first is a co-option into the Board of Directors, the group of volunteers directly responsible for running the club on a national level. The new Event Director role will be filled by Terry Smith who was co-opted at the club's last board Meeting, held on August 4th 2017.
The role will fulfill the following objectives:
- To collate information and suggestions from members for potential events.
- To initiate and take the lead on events organised and attended by the club.
- Provide guidance and support to office staff on building a diverse diary of events for the benefit of club members throughout the year.
- Work with press officer to help maximise promotion for the club events.
Terry joins the Board with a vast amount of experience having been a member of the TR Register since 1973. He was instrumental in the very first events that were to become known as the TR International Weekend in 1978/79 at Donington Park before the event moved to Prescott in 1980 and ultimately Malvern. Terry explains,
"In those days I was called a Meetings Co-ordinator, but my next position was looking after the TR Register sales as I became Exhibition Manager, alongside this after the Prescot meeting I realised the need for a local group and called a meeting which founded Cotswold Vale Group. Lastly for my sins I started "The Old Farts", so I think I have the pedigree to fulfil this role."
Terry's first project will be hosting a Technical Seminar on Oils, ZDDP and Lab Testing your Engine at Millers Oils which is availble to book now.

New Italia Registrar
Elsewhere, Graham Andrews steps officially into the role of Italia Registrar having taken over the reigns from Paul Harvey due to ill health. Graham has already got his teeth stuck into the centralisation and digitisation of records using the TR Register database and is picking up from the hard work and strong foundations already laid by Paul Harvey.
Graham is the owner of a stunning Triumph Italia which has won the Concours D'Elegance multiple times at the TR Register International weekend, this year scooping the Masters Class and going on to represent the TR Register at the Meguiars Champions event at the 2017 NEC Classic Motor Show.
The TR Register would like to express it's sincerest thanks to Paul Harvey for the hard work and valuable contribution made to the club as Italia Registrar and wish him a speedy recovery.
