TR Register International Weekend

Meguiars Concours, Pride of Ownership and Protek Engineering 'Triumph Survivors' 2018

Bathed in stunning sunshine with clear blue skies, and possibly for the last time, the Lincoln Showground was surrounded by beautiful Lincolnshire countryside set the backdrop for the largest gathering of Triumph TRs and Standard Triumphs in the UK.

For 2018 the Meguiar's sponsored Concours events and Protek Engineering 'Triumph Survivor's' Display saw some absolutely stunning cars and the very best that members of the TR Register have to offer; the standard was extremely high. Polishing in 30 DegC on Saturday came to a welcomed halt at 2:30pm as judging commenced at 3pm and owners stepped back in nervous anticipation.

The glorious sunshine again allowed the Awards Presentation to take place on the grassed arena to the rear of the Epic Centre. The cars were expertly formed up and then drove forward to collect their individual awards cheered by the spectators from the centre's terraces and the ideal vantage point to watch the proceedings with Wayne Scott as MC and our Honorary President, Graham Robson presenting the awards.

This was my third and final year as the Concours Organiser and it was pleasing to see all the planning, preparation and learning from Lincoln 2016 and Malvern 2017 come together. I am sure that whoever takes over from me will continue to raise the profile and standard of the club's Blue Ribbon event and the envy of other clubs.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the volunteers who once again gave up their valuable time to judge the Concours, Pride of Ownership and Triumph Survivors. There is now a pool of 24 new and experienced volunteer judges, 15 of whom were kept busy judging this year's events.

A special mention of thanks goes to my two glamorous assistants; Roger Hinds (Pogo on the Forum) and Matt Stephens who gave valuable assistance over the whole weekend. Without their help the execution of all the planning and preparation would have been that much more difficult and time consuming, and not least the resultant pressure!

Last but not least, a big thank you to all the entrants without whom the Concours, Pride of Ownership and Triumph Survivors events wouldn't happen. I look forward to seeing your cars at future events.
