Great places to visit.

Peter and Ian presented the Day of Triumph Trophies to the winners for the day. Thanks to Sue and Rory for organising this for us.

SOS . . . HELP WANTED!!!

Each year TSOA fields a team in the MSCA 6-Hour Regularity Relay and this year we have a complement of 5 TR7 / TR7 V8’s plus one invited interloper in a TR7 – Toyota 86.

What we need are people to support your team. We need team members to man (or person?) the Stop Watches on each lap, we need people on the pit wall to relay the lap times to our drivers as they pass, and we need people to manage the changeover of cars as they finish and start their session. Plus we need someone to do the running for Roger, poor boy.

So if you can spare your Sunday, 1st May, for a fun time supporting your TSOA team in this prestigious event, please contact Roger 0458 621 161 to register your commitment.

The team needs you from 8.45 am at Mallala (Garages 36, 37, 38 and 68,69 – right behind the form-up area for cars entering the track) through to 5.00 pm for the conclusion of the 6 Hour event . . . you may have guessed the official start time for the event is 11.00 am.

Lunch and drinks are provided (courtesy of your club) and Cherri is providing her famous muffins for sustenance during the day.

Join us for a fun day supporting your Team and your club.

Roger

Day of Triumph 2022

Monday, February 28th, 2022

Day of Triumph 2022

It’s on again the TSOA annual DAY OF TRIUMPH.

Polish the chrome and get ready to be judged.

This year’s event will again be at Civic Park Modbury
SUNDAY 3rd of April

Cars need to be in place early and can’t be removed until the end of the
event at 3pm for safety reasons. Gates open around 8.30am

The rules and scoring are the same as prior years and it will be the point score
that wins you the trophy. However due to low numbers over the past years, cars
may be grouped for judging.

The car needs to support the class and score ranking it has been entered into.

I will need a lot of help again from several people on the day who have an
eye for detail, especially Concours.

Please join me and many others on the day.

Apologies: It was flagged earlier that the event would be at the rotunda at the park in Adelaide but unfortunately the council pulled out at the last minute due to ground works.

TSOA SA Website

Good news fellow Triumph enthusiasts . . . the Club website is finally clear of the damage done by recent hackers, and we can now get back to business!

If you are interested in what went on with our site, have a look at https://www.zdnet.com/article/over-a-million-godaddy-managed-wordpress-sites-cracked/ and you will understand that this has been no mean feat for our technical gurus to overcome.

The first issue for most of you is that the previous registration authorisations have been lost. That means, if you want access to the club site you will need to re-register by sending a request to Roger at rogncher@internode.on.net advising him of your preferred User Name and your mobile phone number. A temporary password will then be issued to you, and you will then be operational.

When you have a look at our site, you will notice some minor changes, but we have endeavoured to get it back to pretty much what we had before. The Classifieds work a little differently, and the Calendar isn’t as pretty (but we’re working on it). Submitting a post of your most recent Triumph news, together with photos, remains the same, so don’t hesitate to have a go.

Something that we are trying to develop is the look of the home page, where new and previous posts will appear as a title only, so that you can click on that to go to the full post. This will tidy up the look of the Home Page quite a bit.

So, onwards and upwards . . . or “On the Marque and Up To Speed” as we say it within our TSOA circle!
