  • Club Triumph / TR Drivers Club National Weekend

    Friday 8th July / Saturday 9th July / Sunday 10th July 2022

    Club Triumph and the TR Drivers Club are proud to announce the details of their forthcoming National Event, which will be held alongside the BL / BMC Day at The British Motor Museum, Banbury Road, Gaydon, CV35 0BJ on Sunday 10th July 2022.

    To encourage you all to dust off the cars and give them a run, the Club is offering free entry to the Show and Museum to all members who wish to park in the nominated Club Triumph area. Free Entry will be via an individual pass detailing the vehicle and owner, to be presented at the gate. The Club will cover the cost of your entry, plus one guest. Entry for children aged 16 and under is free. Whilst the Show opens at 10:00am, we strongly suggest that those coming just on Sunday should plan to arrive no later than 9:00am to allow entry by the deadline. At last year's event traffic on approaching roads built up significantly after 9am, resulting in bad delays for some. The café within the museum opens at 9:00am for bacon rolls and sausage baps.

    Club members should apply for their free pass via the Club Shop no later than midday on Wednesday 6th July. Your pass will then be sent via email. Please note, we will be unable to process any requests after 6th July.Passes will be also be required for those camping for the weekend, so please make sure you apply.
