If you own a TVR, or are passionate about the marque, or would just simply love to own one at some point in the future, membership of the TVRCC is not really an option, it becomes a necessity. 

Why, well just look at the following benefits that all of our members receive:

 

sprint1. Everyone receives Sprint - the 64-page monthly full colour A4 magazine packed full of TVR related articles, photographs, motorsport reports, specialist companies and the largest single monthly listing of TVRs for sale anywhere in the UK. It is not available to non-members. It has won a series of industry accolades including either winning or taking runner-up as Best Car Club Magazine from Classic and Sports Car Magazine every year since 2006.


2. The Club Office - Based in Newport, Shropshire, the TVR Car Club Office is available to answer your queries 9am-5pm Mon-Fri on 01952 822126 or by using the online club office enquiry form. The Office, run by Alison Brown, has a wealth of TVR experience and can usually provide instant answers to your queries.


insurance3. Insurance - The TVR Car Club has negotiated special rates with a cross section of insurance companies for Club members which, for many, will offer the very best cover available. For some individuals,however, we and our providers both recognise that a combination of circumstances will combine which will result in other companies being ableto offer cheaper cover.  Nonetheless, even in these cases, it is frequently a requirement of the insurance that you are a member of the recognised club for the marque in order to benefit from these lower rates. TVRs are specialist cars, and for that you need a specialist insurer.  It is one of those areas where cheapest is not necessarily always tuscan-crashbest, as the time to find out that your ¬£50 premium saving equates to a poor service should the worst happen. 

 

The owner of this unfortunate Tuscan (right), for example, found out that his insurance didn't cover him on a track day after he decided to argue with the armco.  A full list of TVR Insurance Specialists can be found here.


rockingham4. Track days - Although you can attend track days with other Clubs/Companies, we believe that we offer the best combination of value for money together with safety, TVR experienced instructors, lots of track time and a TVR only environment that other providers cannot offer.

 

In recent years we have held track days at Cadwell Park, Brands Natch, Rockingham, Castle Combe, Oulton Park and the Nurburgring.  Additionally, in conjunction with the TVR Car Club Holland, we always participate in the highly successful TVR Continental Meeting at Zolder. 


Tim Davis5. Motorsport - The TVR Car Club has run its own race series since 2000 and which developed in 2004 into the TVR Car Club Challenge Cup which is open to all TVRs. In 2006, this combined with the former factory-run TVR Tuscan Challenge into the only “TVR only” race series in the world. This series is now extremely popular and competes at some of Britain's premier race circuits such as Oulton Park, Snetterton and Brands Hatch.  The 2012 Championship was won by Club member Tim Davis in a Tuscan (right).

 

We run two Sprinting Championships - the TVRCC Speed Championship - which is for TVRs only and has been competed for for over 12 years - and new for 2013 the TVRCC Classic Marques Challenge in which you can pit your TVR Stewart Lobleyagainst a series of other classic British sportscars such as MG, Healey and Aston Martin.  Both series compete all over the countr and are often co-located.  There are 24 different rounds in 2013 (Speed Championship, 18 in the Classic Marques Challenge) in venues ranging from airfields (North Weald), to hillclimbs (Prescott/Harewood)to test tracks (MIRA/Hethel) to circuits (Mallory).  The 2012 champion, Jez Firth, continues to perform well in his Class B Griffith although the Class A competitors, such as 2011 champion Stewart Lobley (right) are snapping at his heels. 

In addition, the TVRCC offers support when requested to competitors in all other forms of motorsport where they promote TVR.

 

LMIn 2003, 2004 and 2005, the Club sponsored the TVR entry into the Le Mans 24 hour race including the historic first ever finish of that race in 2004 by both Synergy Chamberlain Motorsport T400Rs (more info) They are often represented at UK rounds of the Britcar (where for 2013 Club members Andy Holden and Steve Glynn are each flying the TVR flag in their Sagaris V8s) and occasionally European rounds of the FIAGT. 

 

In recent years, the Le Mans Classic has also grown in popularity and 2012 saw nearly 750 Club members descend on the La Sarthe circuit in July to support the 5 Granturas entered, including the historic 50th anniversary return of the original YFR 751 that first raced at Le Mans in 1962.  The Club provides support when requested to all older TVRs racing in the historic series; they have supported various Granturas entered into the Le Mans Classic in recent years and even assisted one member with his costs to enable him to compete in an endurance race in the USA in a 2500M.


6. Other events - The TVR Car Club organises a number of non-track related events throughout the year to bring enthusiasts together. This often includes a gathering in Blackpool, despite the closure of the Bristol Avenue works in 2006, and we are pleased to say that we are returning to Blackpool in 2013 on the weekend of 13/14 September. 

TAG11Big Northern Gathering, held in Blackpool over the weekend of 3-5 Sep 10, was generally accepted as the best event the TVRCC has ever held and was a finalist for best Club event in the 2010 Classic & Sports Car annual club awards.  2011 saw the Club taking over the Goodwood estate for a weekend in June to celebrate "TAG11" - TVR at Goodwood - and this too made the final shortlist for best Club event for thatyear's Classic & Sports Car annual club awards.  Other venues for national events have included BrandsHatch, Duxford, Nottingham, South Wales, Scotland, the Isle of Man and the Rockingham 2007Shuttleworth Collection in Bedfordshire. In 2004 the Club hired the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff for a spectacular event involving over 500 members and a memorable “rumble” through the city early on Sunday morning to wake up the inhabitants!  In 2007, around 1700 members and 1000 TVRs descended on Rockingham Motor Speedway for Diamond Rock, the biggest gathering of TVRs ever to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the birth of the company.

Regional Meeting7. Regional Events - The Club has 43 individual regional monthly meetings spread around UK ranging from the Highlands of Scotland to the Channel Islands.  These allow members to talk to other owners about their experiences with their cars and frequently gain valuable local advice about specialist services.  If advice is not available locally, the Club has access to host of other specialists who will be able to answer your query. 


8. Website Members Area - See side navigation bar buttons.


Discussion ForumAlthough a large part of this site is open to the general public, there are some additional areas which are restricted to members only and are accessible only to those members who are showing as current in the Club database.
