The Scottish Triumph Weekend will be staged as part of the overall Bo’ness Revival on 1-2 September, 2018.
Seven Triumph clubs – the TR Register, TSSC, Stag Owners Club, 2000/2500/2.5PI Register, Triumph Roadster Club, Pre-1940 Triumph Motor Club and Grampian Triumphs – are supporting the idea and it is hoped to have 100 Triumphs in the 450 capacity show.
The Bo’ness Revival is actually two events in one, Scotland’s only combined historic motorsport and classic car event. Activities kick off on Saturday with the Bo’ness Revival Classic Road Tour and the Bo’ness Saltire Trophy starting from the Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway Preservation Society’s station in the town centre. The Road Tour will take in the gentle Borders countryside, with a mid-way break for lunch or refreshments in Duns, home of the Jim Clark museum. All being well, a visit to the museum will be included before returning to the finish back at Bo’ness station.
The Saltire Trophy in contrast is a genuinely competitive Historic Rally that includes autotests and regularity sections, but all without the requirement for a competition licence, crash helmets etc. Saturday night will see a social get-together at a local hostelry where the awards for the Saltire Trophy will be presented, together of course with a bit of after dinner talk and banter.
Sunday will see an expected 450 cars from 34 clubs in the Revival’s classic show field, where the display of Triumphs will take centre stage. Running all day in the show field arena under the control of Wayne Scott will be the Carkhana competition, together with interviews and features on participating owners and their cars. There are numerous awards up for grabs too, for which all entrants are eligible.
Whilst all of this is going on, there will also be two days of historic motorsport taking place on the tricky Bo’ness Hillclimb course, with 120 cars spanning seven decades battling it out for honours. A regular feature of the Hillclimb is the TR Register-sponsored TR Class, which always has a strong entry. It would be great to see some other Triumphs taking to the hill too, and should there be sufficient interest a general Triumph Class is a possibility.
Due to the large expected entry for the Bo’ness Revival Classic, an early entry is advised as a strict first come/first served policy is in place. Should any Triumph owners who are not a member of one of the participating Triumph clubs be considering attending, they should contact Cliff McKinnon on email@example.com without delay in order to avoid disappointment.
