Kennet Valley TR Group support the Inaugural Thatcham Classic
Saturday 19th October saw the first full day break from the incessant rain we have seen over the past few weeks, which allowed the new Thatcham Classic Show to continue. A few large puddles on the way in led to a soft grassed area, which was just firm enough to take the 70 - 80 cars that came and went throughout the day.
Heavy clouds and the threat of more rain meant that many did not stay for the full 6 hrs scheduled for the show, and the visiting spectators appeared low too. It’s always a risk this time of year, but overall, considering the weather leading up to the show, it can only be deemed a success, in being able to proceed at all.
The clubhouse provided hot & cold soft drinks and cake, and a burger van provided more substantial food.
There were two WFTR group members with a red TR2 and a green TR6. Dave Rumens ex TR7 and Spitfire were also there, and of course my TR. There was also a TR4 for a brief period, but not one I know.
Thanks to Mike Field for the report and photos.
