About Stafford and Warwick

Firstly apologies that our page of this TR Register web site is not as zingy as others but we prefer to sit in front of the windscreen of our TRs than the screen of a computer.

But we promise you that when you visit us on the first Tuesday of the month at The Waterfront, Barton Marina, Barton under Needwood  DE13 8AS, you will have a warm welcome from the ladies and gents who share your love of classic cars and the social scene which surrounds them. 

Welcome to the Staffs and Warks Group web pages. We are the local group for TR Register members in the north Birmingham area.

The Staffs and Warks group was founded in 1975 by Paul Hogan who lived in Walsall, then in Staffordshire, and Chris Glasby who lived in Sutton Coldfield, then in Warwickshire hence the name Staffs and Warks.  No records exist of that first meeting at the Bulls Head in Shenstone but one of the founding members Pete Dumelow is still a regular attendee.  Auto tests in the car park and hosting sprint meetings at the nearby Curborough Sprint course from 1978 helped launch the TR Register's involvement in motor sport.

Currently the membership stands at just under 90 and covers every model of TR from TR2 to TR8. So there is a wealth of technical expertise gained from running and restoring TR's which owners are more than happy to share with all members new and old.  There is no pressure to join in, but why not come along to our monthly meeting at the Waterfront, Barton Marina, Barton under Needwood DE13 8AS on the first Tuesday of every month or at our mid month meetings which are at various locations in the area for a friendly chat with like minded TR enthusiasts.  Wives and partners are also catered for so the talk is not all about oil leaks and which tyres to use!  We are always interested in new ideas and suggestions as to how the group is run.

We run a varied list of events throughout the year which include:

  • Twice monthly club nights
  • Club runs
  • Attendance at local shows
  • Visits to places of interest
  • Attending national and international events and other TR Group events
  • Christmas dinner

Staffs and Warks Group Lunch Time Meetings.....

Whats the idea? .... Our normal social get togethers are on Tuesday evenings. During the better weather, there are opportunities to meet during the day too.

Who's invited? .... Any members of the TR Register.  The people who normally come to the evening meetings are certainly welcome.  Members, who we seldom or never see are very welcome because this idea is aimed at them.  As a TR enthusiast, whether you are currently an owner or not, we would love to see you.  If you don't currently own a TR, you can see and hear the cars and then it might convince you to buy one.  If you do already own a car and you are in the process of restoring it, then seeing and hearing our cars may urge you to get your car back on the road.  If your car is roadworthy, but you are not confident in driving any distance or at night, then no problem.  We can meet in your area.  If you are thinking of purchasing a TR then come along and take a look at the range of TR's available.  Between us we have a lot of knowledge about the cars, their 'individualities' and how to repair them.

Meeting place... Let us know where you want to meet.  The venue should have a reasonable car park and preferably availability for food - pubs and garden centres are ideal.  We'll bring the sun :)

When shall we meet? .... We already have evening meetings on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month. Wednesday or Thursday lunch times are probably best running from May until September those on WhatsApp often post an invite for a lunch out.

What next? .... Let our group leader know if this is of interest to you and when and where you wish to meet and they'll do their best to promote it.

Venue suggestions .... Any where within an hours drive of Lichfield as it's a central point.
