Spitfire Anniversary

Monday, August 29th, 2022

Hi. I’ve missed the last couple of meetings, so this might all be academic, but I recall someone saying that it would be nice to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Spitfire by having one on the stage during a club meeting. I have a 1963 Spitfire 4 (Mk1)…so its an early model. I’d be happy to do the honours! Let me know and assuming its not poring with rain I can bring it along to the next or other club meeting. I’ll even swap its currently fitted alloys for the original steelies! Cheers. Peter Spalding.

Blast From The Past

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022

Found these photos recently. I believe it to be a TSOA show from about 1977 or so. I am pretty sure  the TR2 RPN843 belonged to a friend of mine Robin Heath while we were doing our engineering degree at the time. It was my introduction to TRs and most of the reason I own one today once I realised that an XK140 was unlikely to happen. Still happy with my choice.


President’s Report – May 2022

Thursday, May 26th, 2022

Our May mid week run, the first for almost 2 years, was enjoyed by a small group of enthusiasts.  Bob Kretschmer brought out his lovely TR4A and Stephen Wade his equally superb Stag.   The autumn colours in the Adelaide Hills were brightened by the morning sun as the drive took us through Crafers, Woodside, Nairne and to our lunch destination at the Hahndorf Mill.  On the way we stopped at Green Valley Strawberry farm for morning tea.  All thought this worth another visit, particularly Bob who enjoyed their sticky date pudding.


Last meeting Duane Kaak gave a brief presentation on some personal memorabilia related to his Triumph motoring.   I am hoping to continue this whilst members find it interesting.  John Tuohy volunteered to present at the next meeting, and I will again seek further volunteers.  Just to remind everyone, it is intended that presentations are brief and each item should be smallish and could be anything of interest ranging from a stainless-steel bolt to a speeding fine from SA Police.   .

As I am writing, we are 3 days away from the next Berlemon Weekender, this time to Murray Bridge.   Julie and I, together with more than 25 others, are looking forward to another interesting event.

At the last meeting it was announced that we have a volunteer to take over the production of FasTRak from Marg and Dean Bogisch who have been doing it for the last 9 years.   Many thanks to Marg and Dean for holding the fort for so long and to Katherine Bradley, a relatively new member, for taking on one of the most important jobs in the Club.

And that reminds me that we need a firm commitment from someone to take over running of the Day of Triumph (DOT) from Ian Rigby.  This is another vital Club role.  Ian has outlined details for the event in a recent FasTRak.and I know that he will be willing to assist a newcomer in taking over and managing the event.  Let Ian or me know if you’d like to take on the role.

Don’t forget to pay your subs and get your logbooks sorted before 30 June 2022.  And remember the AGM is not far away (August meeting) so start thinking about a position on the Committee.

Check out the social calendar.   I look forward to seeing you in June

Kind regards,

Peter Davidge (President)
