Kennet Valley, Windsor Forest & Vale of the White Horse TR Groups were 17 TR;s among 960+ classic vehicles from Motorbikes, Cars/Vans, Agricultural, Industrial and Military that attended this the 27th Basingstoke Festival of Transport.
Despite the weather forecast 'doom & gloom' all week for Sunday 13th May, the morning started in bright sunshine which served to encourage a large attendance from the public to view these great classics and shop and browse the many stall of autojumble, bric'a'brac and usual country show stalls.
Phil Horsley was invited to the Festival tannoy system to talk about the TR Register which helped to create interest and visitors to the stand. The stand comprised of TR3 to TR7, unfortunately by 3 TR's didn't make it so we didn't quite fill the 20 place stand, sail banners flew in the cooling breeze and the usual picnic and social atmosphere was enjoyed by all TRR members attending.
Mike Fields conifer green TR5 was chosen by the organisers as a contender for the car of the show as chosen by the Mayor of Basingstoke and Deane 2018/19 is Cllr Sean Keating, but was pipped to the post by a 1935 Wolseley Hornet.
As usual, Basingstoke Festival of Transport provided lots of super classics to view and a great day out for us petrol heads, and the public were attracted in their thousands especially with the sunny weather. So watch out for it in next years diary and we hope to see you there!
