Triumph Enthusiasts Club Belgium

The Triumph Enthusiasts Club Belgium are building a new website:  Have you got any Dutch Triumph literature that has already been scanned that they can make available to their members.  They have got some of the English stuff from my website already..

Newark autojumble

Not many Triumphs at Newark autojumble today. This Herald was for sale.
Wildest car was this 480inch 7.8 litre Gasser a local car.  As normal a lot of motorbike stuff.  Got the nitrile gloves and a small sheet of 0.9 mm alloy I was after.

Standard Pennant
The annual Standard Triumph forum show was at Brooklands for 2014.  What a place never been before, it would have been value for money even without the Triumphs.  The Wellington bomber and Hurricane in one of the hangers were in a stage of being rebuilt so seeing all there insides was very interesting.  I had not realised that 2nd world war planes still had large areas of their bodywork made from coated clothe.

AC Ace
On my way to see the banking I passed this car.  An AC Ace built at Brooklands. That banking is very steep.
There was a good turnout of cars. Including a some of the less often seen oldies.
