Meet the Team

Hugh Adkins, Events Co-Ordinator & 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!

Graham Ellery, Treasurer & Committee Member

"Netherfield Area" East Side

Driver of a Beautiful

Green TR3

Owned by Mrs Maggie MacKenzie

Martin Jane, Committee Member & Secretary.

Owner of a White TR6 and a Pale Blue TR4

As to my interests,

they center 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 2025!

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.

2011 Winner of "The TR Register's" Best Picture of the year . See TR action Issue 255.


Steve James, Committee Member

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 41 years who's been very tolerant of the smells of oil and Swarfega. Other interests include all things musical.


George Jackson, Former Group Leader

George has had an interest in TRs since spending 2 great holidays in 1968/69 in his friends' silverstone Grey TR3A. He has a lifelong interest in classic cars and historic motor racing. He replaced his trusty Austin Seven in 2003 and acquired a Red TR4A Which he has restored.
