Next Meeting & Mick's Brooklands Report

08-27-2013

The next TR Group meeting is on Thursday 29th January 2015 at the Old Mill, Baginton

Mick Papworth's visit to Brooklands Report (Some Pictures in the Gallery) Sorry it's late

Set off at 7.45 to Warwick services to meet up with Cotswold Vale group members, Tim, Ian and Andy. Left at 8.35am and we travelled in convoy, M40 & M25. Off at J11 to Brookland Gates. Good trouble free run arriving at 9.55am !.
Queueing to get in, and even then, there seemed too many cars to try and park,
Got parked up and just took a mo to take in all the Triumphs that made the pilgrimage to the mecca of motor racing, and all things on wheels (and wings) I had a good look around seeing lot of interesting cars bikes planes bus's and the general feel of the place was great,
A few motor bikes were dotted about, giving an insight to older classic bikes, The TR6RC and 70s 450 Honda caught my eye as a couple arrived on them. His and hers!! both in great restored condition,
treated my self to a climb up the concrete banking you have to be there to realise how steep and high up that is. A couple of photo's in the gallery to try and show this,
The day was split into sections with Cov group picnic and trip on Concord experience, and brief rests just taking in all to see,
The Hill climb runs were quite interesting and when modern Monster motor bike went up the crowds were visually moving back from the guard rails awesome sound and I'm sure he took off at the top of hill,
Great spectacle, a few other bikes tried to do same but to no avail,
Did meet up with one old Coventry member Ian Mellings and son James in Ian's TR3A hope to see them at local meet at the Old Mill,
All the major clubs had stalls there and saw Chris Cunnington of TR register. wished him well for all his hard work done over many years as he is standing down now: well done Chris, although he assures me he will be attending Harrogate National this year and I offered to buy him a beer or tonic
coming to the end of the day most cars had gone so just a last shot of the group before setting off with Ian's DHC TR7

4.30pm onto a busy slow moving M25 but once onto M40 all moved quite well getting home for 6pm,
Nose sunburned !! 
Great day
