Various Triumph cars at the end of Club Triumph 48hr run at Broadfields Garage, Cockfosters, London as originally featured in the Standard Triumph Review December 1966.
The garage was the venue for the start of the Club Triumph Round Britain Reliability Run (RBRR) for many years. Broadfields used to enter new Triumph cars in the RBRR. In 2017 Club Triumph had a Broadfields themed stand at the NEC Classic Car Show.

Triumph Garages in CockfostersIn 1955, 1959, 1961, 1965 and 1968 Broadfields Garage & Engineering Co Ltd, Standard House, are listed as a Main Stanpart Stockist (London Metrolitian Area) and as a Area Dealer. In 1972 and 1974 listed as a distributor. In 1975 I have a listing showing as being a distributor for Rover, Land Rover and Triumph vehicles. Broadfields were dealing with Land Rover products as can be seen from this advert scanned from my magazine collection.
