Stand by for a great weekend of TVR motorsport as our two headline events both have their final rounds on Saturday and it's still all to play for!
Firstly at Donington, the final round of the Dunlop TVR Challenge takes place with despite the dominance of Tim Hood all season, overall championship honours could go to any one of the three main class leaders with Dean Cook being the favourite.
Meanwhile in the West Country, Geoff Stallard's claim on the title hangs in the balance, as he depends on results going his way at Castle Combe. Jes Firth must win at the Wiltshire circuit to regain his 5th championship.
Despite the weather last Saturday, sufficient members did brave the snows that hit the Midlands to ensure that the AGM could go ahead. We are pleased to report that all resolutions were passed with an overwhelming majority, and so it is with great pleasure that we welcome Angela Perkins to her new role as National Events Manager and bid farewell to Pietro who retires after nearly 20 years on the Committee.
We were also pleased to present the annual club awards, including the Trevor Wilkinson Trophy to Ian Renwick for hs stunning 3000M.
The TVRCC gets into the Olympic spirit by our own version of the torch relay - we will be transporting a stick of Blackpool rock around the country through all the regions, starting in Blackpool on 7 July and ending at ROCKingham on 19 August where it will finish with a parade lap of the circuit driven by one of our race drivers.
This year's visit to Bespoke Performance in Ware for our annual TVRCC open-day was blessed with near perfect weather. Over 50+ TVRs from various regions came to visit over the day keeping the staff from Bespoke very busy with both catering and chatting. Graeme and Skippy were kept occupied the entire day offering technical advice and putting cars up on ramps, whilst Mark and Martin were similarly being put through their paces greeting everyone and showing folks around the workshop.
All in all, a fantastic day out - both socially and drawing on the technical expertise of Bespoke staff! Thanks everyone at Bespoke Performance for putting on such an excellent event for us - yet again - and everyone else for coming and making the day the great success that it was!
On the 6th of May, TVRs from a number of local regions attended the Duxford spring car show at the Imperial War Museum. We all had a great day out going around both the car show and the museum itself - which is huge!
