Concours D'Elegance, Pride of Ownership and Standard Triumph Survivors Entry
To be held at the Inter-Club Triumph Weekend, Stratford Racecourse, 16-18th August 2019.
The Stratford Racecourse is set to see the largest gathering of Triumphs in the UK as this year the TR Register and TSSC combine forces to host a joint International Weekend event.
The event promises to be a great show weekend, with a wider range of vehicles and marques to be seen, new people to meet and all set against the backdrop of Stratford-upon-Avon, one of the world's most prestigious and famous locations.
Key amongst the events at this show is the TR Register Concours which provides members with the opportunity to showcase not only their pride and joy, including some which have survived virtually unmolested since leaving the factory but cars which are representative of some of the best TRs on the planet – that's precisely what our Concours and Master Class winning cars are – the best!
Is it under cover?
Due to the unavailability of a suitable indoor Hall at the racecourse, the TR Register have hired a Marquee to house the Meguiar's sponsored Concours D'Elegance TRs. 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.
Stratford-Upon-Avon is a wonderful setting for this event and is a great place to explore on foot. The town centre is within easy walking distance of the racecourse and is filled with interesting shops, cafes and eating places. The main attraction is, of course, its association with the Bard, William Shakespeare. There are many original houses and buildings open to the public that have a direct link with him. The nearest to the racecourse is Anne Hathaway's Cottage which is just a short walk away with many other locations dotted around the town. The first to head for is Shakespeare's birthplace, situated on Henley Street near the town centre which offers an amazing experience of life in Tudor times. The house itself is believed to be where Shakespeare was born and brought up. There is an interesting guided tour of the building for visitors and if you're lucky snippets from his plays are enacted outdoors in the garden. A ticket to visit all the important Shakespeare locations can be purchased from here. There is also a Hop on Hop Off bus for those not wanting to walk too far to see all the sites.
The Swan Theatre, home of the RSC has productions running on its two stages while we're there over the weekend. Even if you're not a Shakespeare fan, the building is worth a visit – there's a café and restaurant on the top floor.

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.
So, if you own a Triumph or a derivative 'Survivor' and would like to be part of the Standard Triumph Survivor display at Stratford then please enter online below or contact Jeff Roberts for a Car Information Sheet. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
