Anyone else missing 10CR2005?


Recommended Posts

Not missing the 10CR, just getting ready for a superb year in 2006 of Club Triumph motoring- the highlight will be the RBRR!

It looks like this:

Nov 05 Bedford CC mini rally
Dec 05 Track Day at Donington
Dec 05 Bedford CC mini rally
Feb 05 Stoneleigh
Feb 05 Graham Reeks he did sod off run
April 05 TRack Day at Mallory Park
April 05 Historic County Run (Prev the 20CC)
June 06 LCC
July 06 CT Goes to the 'Ring
July 06 CT National Day
Oct 06 RBRR
Oct 06 CT Netherlands rally

Blimey what the hell are we going to do in August and Sept- I think I know what I'll be doing, finalising the RBRR!

Must be other events to look forward to as well- superb!

Yeah, 10CR was great, for sure the best event of 2005.  Everytime I have a flashback when we drive up to the Nurburgring. I remember the fantastic drive we had from the Ring to Luxembourg on sunday. So close to home and still so many miles to go :-)

Also looking forward to 2006. Seems that there are some events for the continentals in it as well.  Nurburgringweekend sounds like fun, and obviously our own nightrally in La Ollanda! Which will find place on the first weekend of November! (normally it does)

RBRR has to be done for sure, tempting on doing the Carrera as well...

Well, there will be BCC Autotests for one thing

Then there's the Devil's Own rally up our way - a Nescro event which is either a 1 day road rally, a 2 day road rally or a 2 day including overnight rally!

Might have a problem with the TR7 tho as it may just be a bit too conspicuous in it's new colour scheme

Noticed "July - 'Ring" in the calendar.

The German Triumph Club has invited the TSSC and TRR Race Championship to a 'Ring Race (that's RACE to all LotR fans) on either the 15th or 22nd of July (Final date TBA).   Is your intended date one of these?
The second of these dates will clash with the MG Silverstone International Extravaganza whwich inlcudes Triumph races, so we are hoping for the first.  AND of course, that's one weekend after the Classic Le Mans!  So could be a lot of Triumphs in France/Germany in mid-July.

The 'Ring event is a race, but there will be the usual use of the 'Ring on the Thursday/Friday before.    I believe the Dutch will be there - care to make it an All-Triumph-Clubs event?

[center] 10CR Day Speech
from Henry V by William Shakespeare [/center]

[center]This weekend is called the 10CR Weekend:
He that outlives this weekend, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when the weekend is named,
And rouse him at the name of 10CR.
He that shall live this weekend, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say 'In September is 10CR weekend:'
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.
And say 'These wounds I had on the 10CR Weekend.'
Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that weekend: then shall our names.
Familiar in his mouth as household words
Raider the king, Bancroft and Martin, Carruthers, Gingell,
Foreman, Tornado, Chinn, Hoogmans and Tomboy,
Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he, on that weekend that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
That weekend shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap while any speaks
That drove with us upon the 10CR weekend![/center]

Yeah, well I am still missing 10CR2005 and 2003 come to think of it :'(

The overnight drive thru France is imprinted on my brain as is the Stelvio and then another overnighter when we didn't see another 10CR car for hours - that's a real adventure ;)

Your eponymous 10CR Hero, lost in the Alps at high altitude, regrets blowing his engine and predicts that war will begin when he returns home...

Oh! Forgive me, you smoking heap of shite
That I was suckered in for the 10CR, Club Triumph
Thou are now a ruin of the noblest motor
That ever drove the roads of Gaul
Wow! To the driver that threw your costly rod
over the holes in your crankcase. Now do I prophesy
which like carb mouths, do ape their oily gapes
Bugger! the cough and splutterance, What went wrong?
Of course!  The Light! The pressure less than ten
Domestic fury and a fierce Trouble-and-Strife
Shall batter all my parts at home
My blood and destruction, she'll be so in use
by dreadful domestic objects so familiar
And "Mother" shall but snarl when she beholds
My motor, dismantled with the hands of friends
All built anew with the custom of our men's needs
And my motor's spirit, revving for revenge
With antifreeze inside, nicely hot, Ahh Well!
Shall in this garage with a mechanics voice
Cry "Havoc! and let slip the clutch of wear"
That that foul fishy smell should drive having cost the earth
with 10CR men, calling for 2007!  

From the Anthony speech, Julius Caesar  W. Shakespeare

It was only yesterday that i was talking to my co-driver in the pub, and we were going through the events, and all the highs and lows, and preparing already for the 2007 run.

The overnight drive thru France is imprinted on my brain as is the Stelvio and then another overnighter when we didn't see another 10CR car for hours

I think we saw you catching 40 winks in a service station car park, somewhere in Germany on the saturday night as we pulled over to do the same.

Think i'm going to pass on the RBRR, my co-driver is definately not up for it, and i think i've got a course that runs either side of that weekend so will need the weekend for home work, and to think i thought that would end once i started a proper job.

But roll on 10CR 2007, whatever form it's going to be in.
