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 2018
TR REGISTER INTERNATIONAL WEEKEND WITH PISTONS IN THE PARK incorporating the STANDARD TRIUMPH MARQUE WEEKEND: 29th JUNE - 1ST JULY 2018
The Lincoln Showground, is set to see the largest gathering of Triumphs in the UK as this year the TR Register International Weekend proudly hosts the Standard Triumph Marque Day on the Sunday.
The Epic Centre at Lincoln Showground has recently undergone a refurbishment programme and the internal and external facilities at Lincoln Showground are excellent, a great plus is the surrounding countryside which is steeped in history with many places of interest to visit. With nicely polished floors, the 'Concours Hall' in the East Halldoes not afford quite as much space as Avon Hall at Malvern and this will lead to a more intimate feel. The East Hall will host the Meguiar's sponsored Concours categories and the Standard Triumph Survivors display where the very best examples of TRs, Derivatives, Triumph Survivors and other Triumphs will compete for the coveted titles and trophies.
There will be a prudent use of internal space and greater use of the outside area where the Pride of Ownership competition will be held in the Epic Centre Car Park area adjacent to the East Hall. This worked particularly well in 2016.
You can enter in advance below by completing the Entry Form and download Class Rules and Guidance, Scoring Criteria and specimen Marking Sheets.
You can also enter up to 12pm (midday) on the Saturday however, and without exception, entries will not be accepted after this time. Standard Triumph Marque Day owners that wish to enter a car into the Concours, PofO or Survivors are to ensure their car is entered in advance on-line or on the day and in place by 12pm (midday) on Saturday 30 June.

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.
Whilst 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 and two runners up will 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 Lincoln then please enter online via the TR Register 2018 Concours Webpage or contact Andrew Smith for a Car Information Sheet: email TriumphSurvivor@gmail.com.
