June 2014

Whilst we were sunning ourselves in Jersey at the beginning of June, the Treleavens had arranged a drive and Karting once again. A lovely drive through the lanes from Ivybridge, via Horsebrook, to the track at Menheniot again. Managing around 12 laps of the track with a few racing incidents, the eventual winner was Mark Alexander who now has the task of arranging the 2015 event.

Our cars were split between Seaton Tramway and Fitz’s show on Plymouth Hoe in early June. Trouble with our Stag’s gearbox whilst in Plymouth meant her conveniently being left at Andy’s where the bearings were quickly replaced, and we had a lift home in the Prowse’s Vitesse. We thought the show a little disappointing, but perhaps the torrential rain did not help.

Midsummer Club Night brought out a massive 14 Triumphs and, with so many there, most of the evening was spent in the car park chatting. Probably the biggest showing for some time and it was nice to see so many coming out to play. Mike Papworth from Coventry was in the area and joined us for the evening. There were around 15 Triumphs at the popular Fathers’ Day show at Woodlands, organised by the octogenarian Jim Batty, and it was an opportunity to celebrate young Robbie’s birthday. Always a popular show with young families, as entry includes free or concessionary entrance to the Adventure Park. Others went to Morwellham Quay which was also offering free entry, and that sounded like to good show too.

With the Stag’s gearbox bearings sorted, John & I joined Andy & Micheala Moss for the trip up to Surrey for the Triumph Marque Day at Brooklands organised through the Triumph Forum. Of course we had to make the pilgrimage to the Ace Cafe whilst we were there. Although we did not take the Stag up the Test Hill at Brooklands it was interesting to see how various people tackled the steep incline. Although there was plenty to see and do at the Museum, we are hoping for Marque Day to return to a venue a bit closer to the west country – we know our members were very keen on Prescott.
