  1. The Manx Classic was back this year and eight TR Register members made the journey to the Isle of Man for the event. The Competition is three hillclimbs on consecutive days on closed roads, two of which are on the TT course. The Hills are The Sloc, Creg Willey's and Lhergy Frissell. The awards are presented on the basis of adding the three event best times together, or 300 for a failure. Sam Browne won the Ladies Award, a fine achievement. Nick Smith won First in Class. The results were Jim Giddings TR7 V8 21st overall, Nick Smith TR6 22nd, Tom Purves Morgan 28th, Roger McEwen TR6 43
  2. To be able to host a round of our Championship the track licence must allow slick tyres. Many of us compete in the Manx Classic but slicks are not allowed, so no Championship. Roger
  3. It is quite amazing to me that there was only one car entered in Class 1. This class is for “standard” road going Triumphs and would suit any day to day TR. Having no history it is likely that the bogey times are easy to achieve? Perhaps next year we will see some ladies (females) and youngsters (under 30) entering.
  4. The Regulations and entry form for next years Manx Classic are now available at www.Manxmotorracing.com Three Hillclimb in three days on closed roads, two on the TT course. 28 - 30 April Regular TR entrants stay at the Casino in Douglas as they have a very large car park suitable for trailers. it will fill very quickly so enter now.
  5. I am also competing that weekend. Organised when the International was planned for July.
  6. Watched the streaming on the internet, nearly as good as being there! It must have been very close racing for the TRs Richard Durrant TR4 41.06 Tom Purves TR3A 41.17 Hamish Roscoe TR3A 41.20 Phil Brown TR2 45.02
  7. Yes it is good to see that the TRs are getting out and about again at the Sprints and Hillclimbs. There were 7 at our first meeting at Castle Combe, then 3 at Shelsley Walsh followed by a magnificent 10 at Goodwood. Hopefully the numbers will increase as the year progresses and the restrictions are lifted further. It is such a shame that spectators are not allowed at the moment, and some organisers such as Loton Park and Prescott have not thrown their doors open to all competitors, just their club members. There is a fair amount of detail and chat on our Facebook page TR Register Sp
  8. A fantastic turnout of ten TRiumphs for the Brighton and Hove MC Sprint at Goodwood. Unfortunately Spectators are not allowed.
  9. The Bugatti Owners Club has issued a statement saying that the current MUK COVID restrictions mean that the future hillclimbs at Prescott this year will be for members of the BOC only. All entries to date have been cancelled and BOC members will have to reapply for the new events. The maximum number of competitors for this year has been set at 50, with no spectators.
  10. Hamish, do you have en entry list, would be interested to see it. Thanks
  11. The Midland Automobile Club is restarting its Shelsley Walsh Hillclimbs on the weekend of the 25/26 July. The Revington TR / TR Register Sprint & Hillclimb Championship has an invitation on both days. Entries close at the end of June. For Regulations and Entries visit www.shelsleywalsh.com
  12. I tried to buy an Acclaim last year (or was it earlier this?) at an Auction in Poole specifically for the Championship. The money I was willing to spend was surpassed by a huge amount for an immaculate low mileage car. Oh well!
  13. The Revington TR / TR Register Sprint & Hillclimb Championship comes to its climax at the Pegasus Sprint at Castle Combe on the 19th October. Such is the competition for the awards for the Championship that we have 16 Triumph cars entered. Admission to the event is free and the catering facilities will be open all day. Practice starts at 09.00 with timed runs starting as soon as practice is completed. This year the Championship Classes will be running first so should be over before headlights are needed!
  14. Congratulations to Martin Paine for winning the 2019 Championship in his Class 1C TR6 All other awards will be decided at the final event at Castle Combe.
