September 2014

We have a new Scalextric champion this year. Marc Treleaven overcame all in early September to win this year’s trophy and take on the organisation of next year’s event. Five Triumphs had met up at the HQ of the Dartmoor National Park at Parke, Bovey Tracey for a 30 mile run over the moor in lovely autumn sun, taking part of the route of the Round Britain Cycle race. Through some of the narrowest lanes towards Widecombe, we felt a little, only a little, sorry for the young driver who had to reverse for us – so badly we felt like offering to do it for him! We parked up at the Dartmoor Prison Museum before arriving at Rob, Helen and Alice Northcott’s – this year’s hosts. Many thanks to them for their hospitality, and also to Graham & Karen from Liskeard for lending us the track. Hot competition with a series of run offs, more off the track than on in most cases, and Marc defeated Maurice to take the title.

Another great display of cars for September Club Night – 12 in all which included Morton & Lilian’s TR (from Denmark – they had come over for the Goodwood Revival), along with Tim’s Burlington. Also with us again was visiting COM member Bill Bates with his Spitfire, risking becoming a Devon regular Bill! Shaun came along from Plymouth to show us his recently acquired and immaculate MkIII GT6 in Magenta and other Plymouth cars included Julie’s TR7, John’s Spitfire, and Bob’s Vitesse. A balmy autumn evening and we stayed chatting in the car park until late.

The second Southwest Triumph Meet this year was back at Route 38, just over the Tamar into Cornwall. Seven of us met up at Ashburton, including Andy W with his MkII GT6 and Neil & Sharon with the 2.5PI. The rest were our Stag, Spitfires of Dan and Mike, Simon’s MkI 2000 and Mark’s 2.5PI. Mixing with the big American cars of the Route 38 car club, were over 20 Triumphs, the vast majority being TSSC cars. After the usual good brunch, eight of us had a lovely drive via Liskeard, Callington and Tavistock to the old airfield at Yelverton where an ice cream was obligatory. A lovely day in great weather once again.
