Day of Triumph 2014

Polish those spokes, black the wheels and vacuum the carpets and get ready to be judged.

It’s on again! The TSOA annual DAY OF TRIUMPH. This year’s event will again be at Civic Park Modbury on SUNDAY 9th of November

Gates open around 8.30am and cars will need to be in position and ready for judging by 10.30am. Exit from Civic Park will not be allowed until the end of the event at 3pm for safety reasons.

I have been asked to take over this event from Rory Gibson this year and I hope that things go as smoothly for me as it has always been in the past.

The rules and scoring are the same as prior years and it will be the point score that wins you the trophy. The car needs to support the class and score ranking it has been entered into.

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

In the event of a tie, for any category, I will ask several of the more knowledgeable in the group to cast their eye over the cars to come up with the ultimate winner. The decision will be based on an agreed approach that would be generally around overall presentation and as close to original as possible for the Concours awards.

Please join me on the day. Ian Rigby 0417085083
