The TR Register and Triumph Sports Six Club and the MG Car Club have come together in an historic collaboration to create the Triumph and MG Weekend.
Held at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern, from 13 – 15 August 2021, the Triumph and MG Weekend promises to be a memorable, jointly run, inter-club event created in partnership.
It was one of the great rivalries of the British Motor Industry. The automotive equivalent if you like, of City vs United – it was Triumph vs MG! But, whilst fans of these historic marques have traditionally existed as friendly acquaintances ever since, the global Coronavirus pandemic has brought all sorts of communities together closer than ever before and the Triumph and MG clubs are no different.
The TR Register and Triumph Sports Six Club (TSSC) had already combined their annual international festivals into an inter-club collaboration with the Triumph Weekend in 2019. But, following the news that MGLive! at Silverstone had been forced to be postponed until 2022, the hand of friendship from Triumph was extended to the ‘marque of friendship’ in MG and the partnership has added the MG Car Club joining as the event’s third organising partner.
Allan Westbury, Chairman of the TR Register said: “It is important for the future of the classic car scene that clubs come together and collaborate and the challenges we all face as a result of COVID have made this even more crucial. Combining our events and resources in this way, means that we can bring Triumph and MG fans together for a really memorable and enjoyable weekend.”
The weekend will feature specialist traders, an extensive Auto-jumble, Auto-solo including the MG Car Club’s historic California Cup, technical seminars, plus inter-club challenges, evening entertainment, live music, live action arena show and Concours D’Elegance competition, anniversary displays – plus much more to be confirmed during the coming weeks. The collaboration between clubs isn’t limited to those organising the event either, as all marque car clubs are invited to come and display their vehicles and join in with this historic collaboration.
The three-day event will also celebrate a number of historic milestones and anniversaries for each marque including 60 years of the MG Midget, 60 years of the Triumph TR4 and Herald 1200, 20 years of the MG Zeds, and 40 years of the Triumph Acclaim and special display areas will be a focal point of what promises to be an event you will not want to miss!
Weekend entry packages, day tickets and other passes all go on sale to the wider public from 1st March 2021.
