TR Register Scottish Weekend 2016
TR REGISTER SCOTTISH WEEKEND
In association with the Bo'ness Speed Hillclimb and Motoring Heritage Weekend
- BOOKING ESSENTIAL
- £10 per car.
- Closing date : Sunday 21st August.
Due to the increased number of participating clubs and hence increased number of entrants to the Motoring Heritage Weekend event as a whole, only pre-registered entrants displaying an entry pass will be able to have their cars on the various club stands in the Heritage Showfield. Cars not displaying an entry pass shall, unfortunately, be directed to the public car park.
The TR Register is the main partner for the Heritage Weekend and a full programme of events is planned for both days, with the emphasis on participation and a move away from the static type of car show event, plus of course two days of historic motor sport action. Once again the TR Register is sponsoring the TR only class in the Hillclimb competition, with six TR's taking to the hill to battle it out for honours. It is testament to the standing of the Bo'ness Hillclimb that the full entry of 110-cars of all types and vintages was reached a full two months prior to the event.
Given that 2015 was the first revival of the TR Register Scottish Weekend following a lengthy hiatus there was a reasonable turn-out of some twenty-seven TR's, but we are hoping that this number will be surpassed for 2016, particularly by Scottish members supporting their own Scottish national event. The old adage that 'Nowhere is far in a TR' always rings out as there are always visitors from South of the border, and beyond, at Scottish Weekends.
