More importantly the TVR Car Club was there showing off a selection of members cars - this year with a 'blue' theme. The centre piece was Richard Wrights TVR No2 - now commonly being referred to as 'Blue 2', the two Andys with an immaculate V8S and the second Tamora to roll off the production lines respectively and finally Duncans SEAC, now sporting recently fitted side pipes!
However the biggest part of the TVRCC display (literally!) was the first outing for what is going to be the TVRCC 'Roadshow'. Courtesy of sponsors Jeld-Wen UK Ltd we now have a 40 foot display trailer which is going to be kitted out so that it can participate at as many national and international events possible promoting the TVR Car Club. Richard Mayoh - TVRCC Events Organiser and Richard Wright - owner of TVR Blue 2, have worked hard on making this possible and we are now looking for any other help we can get to get this facility up and running.
The trailer has been used as sales and display facility for a window manufacturer and has a fold out side unit with windows giving a very useful large floor area inside. It has already been signwritten and now sports very large TVRCC logos and roadshow lettering. Richard Wright who coincidentally has offered his tractor unit to pull the trailer to events, has already noticed a lot of interest when it was being driven to the NEC. It already has lighting and electrics throughout and is fitted with a very neat and quite new kitchen facility. However the main display area needs re-decorating and it definately needs new carpet tiles. Can anyone help with materials for this, wield a paintbrush or just want to give a hand? Or is anyone willing to sponsor some of the re-fit? if so please contact Richard Mayoh in return we may be able to display your company name as a sponsor on the trailer.
The intention is that it will carry TVR Blue 2, some regalia items for sale, TVRCC literature/membership application forms, display boards with TVRCC information and TVR history, interesting TVR memorabilia and event support materials such as banners, flags etc. It will be available for any and all TVRCC members as a centre point at events, somewhere to shelter from the rain on the wet ones, maybe even a place to get a coffee... or anything else anyone can think of!
Time is definately of the essence as its next outing will be Le Mans where it will be situated on the Houx campsite - where you won't be able to miss it! So if you can offer any help in any way please contact Richard Mayoh. and if you fancy showing YOUR TVR at a future event or can just offer some time to help man the stand please also feel free to contact Richard.
