Here we are in September when we should be flat out preparing for British Car Day… regrettably not this year however, as we continue to deal with the impacts of COVID-19 on our hobby.
In August we held a virtual panel discussion chaired by 3 of our Triumph experts, Dave Tushingham, Tony Fox and Wayne McGill. They did a bang-up job of responding to a variety of questions from club members including repairing dash pad cracks, oiling trunnions, throttle body fuel injection, gear boxes, overdrive, carbs, oil pressure and much, much more. To view the entire session, go to https://youtu.be/ZBtMwUaOVc4 .
While we are still concerned about COVID-19 we think we can cautiously organise a short drive. We plan to start small and see how it goes. The morning drive is planned for Sunday 20th September and will last about an hour. We will start and end at the Trail Eatery in Campbellville where you will have the option of enjoying a morning coffee upon arrival and / or lunch when you return. There will be restrictions in place including:
You MUST pre-register and a maximum of 10 cars will be allowed on the drive. If there are more than 10 registrants we’ll keep a waiting list and if there are any drop-outs we’ll let the next in line know.
Social distancing, masks and hand sanitizer are mandatory.
All participants must sign a waiver confirming each person is not at any risk of having been exposed to the Covid19 virus.
Bring lawn chairs with you so you can enjoy lunch in the parking lot.
Please reply a.s.a.p. if you would like to join in the drive. I need to know which car you plan to bring plus the names of you and your passenger.I will send out the route and waivers for you to print out and bring with you.
If any club members want to organise a drive in their locales please let me know and I’ll send out an e-blast.
