    Messages of support fro Darren TR5tar

    A group of us called for an EGM after the BoD expelled Darren back in July, using evidence which the BoD had discussed amongst themselves, but would not disclose to Darren, nor give him a chance to answer. Their process was flawed and unfair. We now have a situation where none of Darren's group members were heard, and a decision has been made without those members evidence in support of him. Why? I am left feeling that the way they work is to decide on the outcome and then find evidence to support it, carefully ignoring anything which may not support the outcome they chose before they started. The result is bonkers. As for the punishment, I am outraged. Darren, moral courage is a quality that a lot of people don't have. You have it in spades and have stuck your head above the parapet when you thought something was wrong, and have stood up to represent the views of your members. The TRR would be a far better place with more people like you! Vicky x
  9. Ben and I are Team 119 and will (hopefully!!) be there with Geoffrey, our 1957 TR3. There is a rather smart red TR3a taking part, but you won't confuse that one with us.....ours is 7 shades of red and has a certain 'patina' about it!! Seeing friendly faces at the checkpoints gave us both a massive boost last time, it really does give participants a lift. Oh, and if you really want a laugh, you can watch me trying to park Vicky x

    +1 I have just read the online version. Gobsmacked! Absolutely furious. The BoD have reached rock bottom and started to dig. Very VERY cross. I need to go and calm down before I explode. Vicky

    Tyre Age/replacement

    Hi Roger, This recommendation by a highly knowledgeable and very experienced Triumph owner has popped up recently on the TR forum, and I'm sure the poster won't mind me copying his recommendation across (see below). I appreciate he's referring to tyres for 15" wheels here, but I've had a quick peek and Camskill do the T-Trac 2 in 175/70/13 for £35.20 each incl VAT. Lots of other sizes available too. Ben has T Tracs on his TR3. We both think they are jolly good tryes and would definitely go with them again. Vicky x TTrac 2 tyres in 165/80x15 have been in short supply for several months. Now back in stock at Camskill, an online tyre supplier I find eminently satisfactory. Link - https://www.camskill...:_2_Noise:_70dB Excellent tyres for any TR2-6 on 15" wheels in my view, and at the current price, a bargain . . . . £40.90 apiece inc vat, a set of 5 delivered to my door in a couple of days, came to just under £225. Usual disclaimers.

    Modern cars and POs

    Easy Start does exactly what it says on the tin and will start the most recalcitrant engine, but just as Nick said, it is addictive if used too often. My first (old jalopy of a) truck was a complete addict. Vicky. x
