Devon Area Report
March 2015

TWO BIG announcements this month. Have you seen the new TSSC Devon Area website yet? The new website address is: www.tssc-devon.org.uk please have a look around. It has a fresh new look and contains lots of useful information including our busy Calendar of Events, Technical Articles, Areaa News, Classifieds and a Members Car Section. We really would like to get the Members Car Section as up-to-date as possible, but we can only do this with your help. We'd be really grateful if you could email a few recent photos and some details about the car such as the Registration, Year, Location and any other details that would be of interest. We do understand that some people prefer not to share certain details on-line, so if you'd like the registration or any other details withheld just let us know. You can email your photos & text to us at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or directly to Darren at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or selecting the 'Add My Car' link on any of the Members Cars pages. With your help we can make the Devon Area website one of the best, so please get in touch soon. We'd like to say a huge thank you to Rob Northcott who created and maintained the previous website for many years and has provided a link to the new site.

Darren lives in the North Devon area, and we hope to have news soon of a new regular meeting place for our many members in the north of the county. Watch this space and we'll also be contacting members direct to let you know the latest news. Of course, we'd also like to again thank Steve Wilkinson for his hard work in this direction before being overtaken by the responsibilities of family life.

Talking of websites and emails, the new Club website at www.tssc.org.uk was revamped last year and is much more user friendly, and the Forum is back. We would like to have all our local members' email addresses so that we can keep you up to date with any pertinent news - so please could you let us have your contact details if you are not already on our e-mailing list.

Going back now to January Club Night, once again we had a good turnout at the Star at Liverton, with Darren coming down to talk about the local website, and Neil & Sharon coming down on a rare night off. We welcomed new member Chris Dore who has a TR6 which we look forward to seeing out with us soon, and we hope you enjoyed meeting the gang Chris. The 2 Triumphs venturing out were Dan's Herald Estate and Mike's Spitfire. My excuse was having had a week in bed with flu compounded by not having any internet access for over a fortnight - Grrrr.

We had to postpone our February run due to the expected snow, though overnight there was a bit on the moor which was our destination, all we had was sheet ice at our place whilst most of our members wondered if we had lost it completely as they saw
no white stuff. Hopefully we can report on the revised run next month.


On Sunday 1 March, we have an interesting day planned. Tim Hills is organising for us to visit the classic vehicle museum at Mortonhampstead which is opening specially for us, followed by lunch, with a car related quiz after for those who dare. We are aiming to be at the Motor Museum in Mortonhampstead at 11.30am which will give us plenty of time to look around before a carvery lunch at the Union Inn in the town. As usual, we do need to know if you are coming along, but it would be great to perhaps meet up with some of our Mid Devon members there. We aim to leave Chudleigh car park at 10.15am to drive to Mortonhampstead via the Teign Valley. March Club Night at the Star Inn will be Wednesday 18th March.

Our April run will be on Sunday 12th - changed because of Easter being the previous week. Not sure where we are going yet, but we'll keep you up to date.

Looking forward a bit, we hope you have already put 26 April in your diary, when we will be visiting Haynes Motor Museum in Somerset as our big Drive it Day event. We have had confirmation from several other Areas that they will be joining us, so it looks to be a great event. We are also looking forward to returning to the Isle of Wight at the beginning of May.

We are looking forward to meeting up with you all soon.
