With the best of laid plans it is sure to slip somewhere along the route, so please be patient if you are joining us for the various runs or for part of the runs. I hope as many of you as possible will participate with your TR’s. I have also tried to spread the word to other classic car owners to join us if they wish, so please invite other classic car owning friends and hopefully there might well be non-TR classic cars there as well.

* For those in Inverness or surrounding area you will see that TS2 will be in your area on both Thursday and Friday afternoon/evening to make it available for you to plan to see TS2, have photoshoots in scenic locations, plan a run with it and/or plan to drive TS2. Whilst in Inverness on those days the guardian for TS2 will be a Joe Marello from Beauly where it will be safely garaged overnight. Please contact Joe on his mobile - 07831 602 388 - to make arrangements and Joe will be delighted to hear from you, meet you for a photoshoot, a run, for you to drive TS2 or for you to just see the car.

Any questions, just ask (my mobile number is below). Can I again suggest If you know anyone else with a classic car, please tell them our itinerary above and hopefully they will join us. It would be much appreciate by me if you would reply to tell me if you received this email, thanks.

Finally, I hope to meet as many of you as possible and that you enjoy your time with TS2 whist she is in our area.

The TR Register has announced that TS2, the club's promotional vehicle and the first right hand drive production TR2 built, will undertake a Round Britain Relay Run aiming to visit every one of the 53 local groups of the TR Register Car Club. This is an extension of the original regional tour proposed for 2020 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the TR Register which was sadly cancelled due to the global pandemic.

Stephen Hall is coordinating this initiative and ahead of the official announcement of the fixtures, dates, shows and route for the tour in TR Action's December issue, Stephen explains his plans below;

I am not sure about you, personally I have heard enough bad news over the last six months. The Global Pandemic has dominated our news channels and rightly so, it is affecting our lives in many, different ways!

It is most likely not escaped your notice that 2020 is the 50thanniversary year of the TR Register and whilst the events at the start of the year went ahead and were outstanding, most others had to be cancelled, for obvious reasons.

With that in mind and building on the 2007 event where TS2 toured the UK in the hands of almost every single group through the Country, drum roll please……the Management Team have initiated a similar tour for TS2 in 2022 as a belated birthday present to our members. The four Trustees of TS2, Keith Read who so generously donated TS2 to the Register, Ian Evans an Honorary Vice President, Phil Tucker long standing member for over 40 years and current Chairman Allan Westbury have all given their blessing for TS2 to tour the UK. Phil sprang into action with his usual enthusiasm and general all round helpfulness and has started to develop the handover documentation for each group and the Caretaker of TS2, Julian Taylor is already making plans to ensure TS2 is fully serviced and ready to go on next year’s exciting tour. Jo at HQ will collate each groups detail to ensure that we have appropriate handover contacts. I am convinced with this level of expertise and your help we will have a major success on our hands for next year.

It is highly possible that the current pandemic will still be with us throughout next year, however we believe with social distancing and following the rules which would of course include sanitation of TS2 between groups we are very hopeful that we can pull this off.

So, what should you do? Well, please refer to the dates of TS2 trip then start planning what your group will do to celebrate the TR Register’s golden anniversary. That is the why, now the what, we would like you to use as much imagination as possible and get the TR Register, TS2 and of course your own group promoted in as imaginative way as possible. It is a brilliant opportunity to swell your ranks and “keep the spark alive”. Remember, our members have had many events cancelled and this is an opportunity to lift everyone’s spirits for next year, yes the virus will most likely still be around, we think we can develop a strategy to allow this event to proceed.
