TR Action Report London Group presented for issue 289
So February the month of wind rain and general tempest the time when most sensible TR drivers have their cars all tucked up or more likely fettling, repairing and doing major works hopefully in a nice warm garage. So it was in London our first group meeting at the Rose of York although well attended saw no TR's in the car park, (well it was chucking down) our incredibly well attended second group meeting at the Bell in Hampton, hosted by Mr Ian Cornish (more about that later) also saw scant few TR's in the car park and finally our annual pilgrimage to The MG & Triumph Spares day at Stoneleigh was conducted in a variety of Euro boxes.
All that said we still had a busy time as mentioned our second monthly meeting was a bit special, we were joined by Ian & Maddie Cornish who presented their TR Works' Presentation to a packed function room at the Bel Inn Hampton. As I am sure many of you know this presentation is not only highly informative but also amusing and memorable I know that one of the attendees was so motivated by the talk that he has now undertaken to research the history of his own race prepared Triumph Herald. What lifted the evening even further was that we were joined by the world famous Mr Willy Cave who fresh from competing in the Classic Monte Carlo run was still able to stand up and regale us with tales from his Navigating career through the ages, questions were asked and each got a an amusing considered and informative response!. It was great to see amongst the throng 2 new members to the London Group who both made themselves known to us see you soon, welcome both Mike & Daniel.
So onward following our Talk the next weekend saw the Stoneleigh Spares day a great day to meet up with old mates, buy things you didn't know you needed eat things that aren't necessarily good for you and have a great TR themed day out - Marvellous and definitely the start of the season, upcoming events for the London Group include a trip to the seaside, SPA Franco champs and of course our bi-monthly Group meetings. Finally then, come and join us for a noggin and a natter over a beer, you are most welcome. You can find us on the first Thursday of every month at the Rose of York in Richmond or on the third Thursday at an alternative venue (keep an eye on the web site) - both start from about 8:30pm.
