Meet the Team

Hugh Adkins - Committee Chairman

Owner since 2006 of a Royal Blue TR6 and The "2007" Winner of South Downs Group "Best Presented Car."

Enjoys venturing out in her, participating in South Downs Groups events and, whenever possible, squeezing in golf, fishing and modern Jive dancing. Can always find time for a beer though!


Martin Jane - Committee Member & Secretary

Owner of a White TR6 and a Pale Blue TR4

As to my interests,

they centre mainly around cars in general and mine in particular, including my military lightweight land rover, and my smallholding, to include gardening and keeping livestock, pigs, sheep and chickens.

But of course most of my time is directed at making my wife's life just a bed of roses.


Ian Squire - Committee Member & TR Action Social Scene Reporter

Has owned his TR5 since 1997.

If all goes well the rolling restoration should be complete by 2035!

Enjoys home improvements, but starts more projects than he finishes. Prefers country to city, and loves a good blast down country lanes in the Sussex sunshine.


Steve James - Committee Member & Events Co-Ordinator

Owner of a 1972 pimento red TR6. An original CP car with wire wheels, overdrive ….and that needy Lucas injection system!
A keen amateur mechanic, I try to do most work myself. 25 years ago fully restored my other classic, a 1958 Series One Land-Rover 88" – it's time now for a bit of a 'refresh' in some areas.
Married to Liz, with two petrol-head daughters – all of whom crease up when I say I've got a dribbling injector to sort out for the weekend! – don't know why.
Hobbies? - Oh yes, I also enjoy the occasional pint!


John Bancroft - Committee Member

Owner of a 1970 White TR 6 "I just love the sound of a well-tuned Triumph 6 cylinder-a love that goes back to 1966!"

Married to Sue for 50 glorious years who's been very tolerant of the smells of oil and Swarfega. Other interests include all things musical.
