Concours D'Elegance, Pride of Ownership and Standard Triumph Survivors Entry
Concours D'Elegance, Pride of Ownership and Standard Triumph Survivors at the Inter-Club Triumph Weekend, Stratford Racecourse, 16-18th August 2019.
Key amongst the events at this show is the Triumph Weekend Concours D' Elegance, which provides visitors with the opportunity to showcase not only their pride and joy, including some which have survived virtually unmolested since leaving the factory, but also cars which are representative of some of the best TRs on the planet.
That's precisely what the Pride of Ownership and Concours D' Elegance winning cars are – the best!
You can enter in advance of the event using the forms below, or up to 12pm (midday) on the Saturday. However, without exception, entries will not be accepted after this time. If you have entered in advance via the website on-line entry form, please print out your confirmation email and register at the desk in the Concours marquee as soon as possible on the Saturday.
All classes are open to TR Register, TSSC and 2000/2.5 Register members and are free to enter.
Is it under cover?
Due to the unavailability of a suitable indoor Hall at the racecourse, the we have hired a Marquee to house the Meguiar's sponsored Concours D'Elegance Triumphs. The Pride of Ownership and Survivors Classes will be displayed and judged as last year, in the open air adjacent to the concours marquee. There will be plenty of space to accommodate all comers so we look forward to seeing another great range of cars on display. If you haven't previously shown your car, now's the opportunity! Overnight security will be provided.

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!
These cars are not being formally judged and you are not competing with other owners, cars are being considered for an award against original factory standards i.e. the annual 'Triumph Survivor Cup' for the survivor considered the best of the display. Two runners up will also receive an award.
