Autumn Drive Day Sunday 15th October 2017
Hi all
We thought it might be fun to have an end-of-season run whether it be in your classic or modern car.
So Sunday 15th October meet 10 a.m. at Treehouse, near Dunecht (used to be Millers). AB51 7NB. Plenty of parking. They have the Forest Cafe open for coffees, various breakfast options, bacon rolls or the full works!!! Or yummy scones and cakes.
We plan to leave by 11:15 for a tour of Donside & Deeside approximately 70 miles. There will be a late lunch stop at Kildrummy Inn for a Sunday Lunch table booked for 2 p.m. AB33 8QS. Two course lunch for 20 and three courses for 25. Plenty of parking here too.
We have made provisional reservations at both venues but we need final numbers by early October.
Mike is sending this e-mail out for us as we don’t have everybody’s e-mail address but please reply to Lee & I at
Any questions give Lee a call 07899 080154.
Lee & Lorna.
The season is fairly flying in and up until now we have had some quite decent weather which has allowed good open top motoring, I hope it continues.
Here is a run down of what we have been up to recently.
The Kildrummy Rally was held at the Deeside Activity Park at Less, there was good turnout of Triumphs which included 3 Stags, ! Spitfire, 1 Acclaim, 1 GT6, 1 Herald & 1 TR3. At the Bon-Accord Steam & Vintage rally which is the largest steam event in Scotland there was 4 Stags, 1 Spitfire, 1 Herald convertible & also a TR6 which was in the public carpark.. The weather was hot and dry which was a pleasant change. There was almost an additional steam event when Graham R’s stag sprang a leak from a radiator hose it was also noticed that the radiator was also leaking from the lower hose outlet union, fortunately having a spare in his garage meant a quick fix on the afternoon before the show.
TRIUMPH Day this year was held on the 25th June and by arrangement we gate crashed the Thomson Rally in Stonehaven the weather although windy it was dry and quite mild for the NE of Scotland. The turnout of Triumphs was very good and with the three main clubs (TSSC, SoC & TR reg) being well represented on the day. There were, 2 x Spit mk3, 1 x Spit mk4, 2 x Spit 1500, 2 x Vitesse, 1 x Acclaim, 6 x Stags, ! x Tr2, 3 x TR3, 2 x TR4, 1 x TR5, 1 x TR6, 1 x Italia & 2 x Swallow Doretti.
The show winners were, Graham R (TSSC) with his Acclaim for the best saloon, Graham also won the Thomson award for the best saloon in its class.
ALEX F (TSSC) with his Spitfire 1500 for the best Sports Six car.
Neil S (SoC) for the best original Stag
Alan S (SoC) for the best modified Stag
Phil B (TR) for the best late TR
Karl W (TR) for the best early TR
John B for the best wedge.
Speed Fest was held at Alford on the 2nd July, there was a good turnout of performance cars with with various track events including Pursuit and the Autotest. Graham R and myself with our Stags had the only Triumphs on show. We had both entered our car into the Autotest which involved a slalom course though cones and a return along a straight to stop astride of the original starting line. This was the second year we have done this head to head so a rematch was welcome. This year Graham won the first run and I won the second. AlanG was also on the track with his red Doretti.
Our next event is the Scottish Transport Extravaganza, this is Scotland’s premier event and is held at Glamis Castle, I will report on the next month.
Our August Triumph Club meetings are due to be held on;
Thursday 17th August at the Grant Arms Monymusk for a meal evening,
& Thursday 31st August, we did plan to hold a meal evening at the Feughside Inn but unfortunately they have closed their restaurant, our meal organiser Mike is looking for another venue which will be published in the “STOP PRESS” page of the Grampian Triumphs website so have a ;look before setting out.
The local area events for August are as follows;
6th August, Garioch Rally, this is a good event held in Old Meldrum and organised by Alan Sharpe the AO for the Stag Owners Club. There is always a good turnout of Triumphs at this event.

19th - 20th August, Deeside Steam & Vintage Rally at the Milton of Crathes, this rally is usually well attended by Triumphs.
27th August, Buckie Rally.
As usual the four main Triumph clubs (TSSC, Stag OC, TR reg & 2000-2500-2.5) should be represented, our local group is called "Grampian Triumph Clubs".
If you are a Triumph Club member and also own a Stag, like I do, you are welcome to join us at the monthly Grampian Stags meeting which is held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 8pm in the bar of the Broadstraik Inn, Elrick, Westhill.
