CT Warwickshire Winter Rally
The 28th February 2016 will see numerous CT cars and crews congregate in Fillongley near Coventry for a day of navigation fun, with breakfast included in the entry cost. On the Sunday morning, tea and coffee will greet the entrants prior to signing on for the 1st edition of the Warwickshire Winter event, this year entitled 'A Warwickshire Winter Wander'. The event will be a traditional 12 car rally, using various check-points and clues to define a route teams must follow. The route will include some fantastic driving roads that many teams may not have driven before. The event will finish at a public house, where Sunday lunch will be available, as well as a range of hot and cold drinks. The food is great value for money and the pub has a welcoming atmosphere, with open fires and a lively bar. Space will be reserved for CT teams. Throughout the day there will be a few tie-breakers and bonus questions for those taking the beginner class, and these will also contribute to the positions for Novice and Expert. These events are fun and social, with the inevitable friendly competitiveness, often with a good variety of cars entered and can be as challenging as the teams wish to make them. The event will finish at the pub where presentations for 1st in class and 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall will take place.
The event will be split into classes as follows;
Places are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment! To enter this fantastic event, apply to Jon Fallowell, with the download form available from the CT website, or request one by email from email@example.com

National Drive It Day, Sunday 24th April
For the first time Club Triumph will be celebrating National Drive it Day with a national event. The idea is to blow out the winter's cobwebs by having a decent length's drive for your Triumph and a get together around 50 cars at a place that is interesting and has some catering facilities. The place we have chosen is the Bicester Heritage Centre. This is reasonably conveniently situated near junction 9 off the M40. The Bicester Heritage Centre is the UK's first park for the restoration, storage and enjoyment of vintage and classic cars, motorcycles and aeroplanes. It is something of a classic its self: 348 acres of a historic 1920s RAF bomber station moments from the M40. They are refurbishing and restoring its redbrick buildings, hangars, tree-lined avenues and airfield to provide an authentic period setting for specialists, vehicle owners, enthusiasts and visitors to meet, share their passions and immerse themselves in a classic age. - See more at: http://bicesterheritage.co.uk . Your local group co-ordinator will have details and participating groups will be arranging a group drive to Bicester.
25th Round Britain Reliability Run
Entry for the 25th running of the Club Triumph Round Britain Reliability Run was officially announced at the NEC Classic Car show on the 14th November ,the event celebrates its 50th Anniversary in 2016, marking 50 years since now club president Derek Pollock with close friend and fellow Triumph stalwart Les Mills, hit upon the idea of driving 2,000 miles non-stop round Britain whilst they were watching the 1966 Le-Mans 24hr endurance event...the first Round Britain was held later that year, the rest, as they say is 'History'. It has now become a truly iconic two yearly event for all Triumph car owners.
The event will start from its traditional North London venue the evening of the 7th of October 2016 and will finish at Kenbworth House 48hrs later on the Sunday evening.
To Mark the 50th anniversary the RBRR team are aiming to make it the best yet with a route revisiting some of the 1966 roads, the finish venue has been moved to Knebwoth house for post run celebrations, a book is also being written covering the 25 events over the last 50 years dedicated to the cars and the many characters that have taken part over those years.
The entry is currently limited to 130 cars and filling fast -just imagine 130 Triumphs firing up at the start, the noise and atmosphere in that North London car park is one that has to be experienced. Details on how to enter can be found within the website under the RBBR banners, the event also has a dedicated Blog, Facebook page and Club Triumph website forum page to allow you to keep up with the latest news and talk with fellow entrants
