President’s Message – September 2021

President’s Message – September 2021

Good day everyone.   All of a sudden it’s September and this morning it felt a little fall-ish out there … just perfect for top-down driving!

In August there were 4 drives to enjoy and since my last report in mid- month Clive Huizinga and Alex McLeod held their cruise to Bobcaygeon last Wednesday …

…and Derek McAlister led a drive to Creemore yesterday.

What’s happening in September you ask?

10th to12th September – Drive Festival Event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

You have already have received an invitation to this event to take part in the TTC-designated show area.  There is space for 10 Triumphs each day and so far we have 4 cars for Friday, 7 on Saturday and 6 on Sunday; so room for a few more as we need 10 Triumphs for each day so that we can enjoy the benefits of our own space.  If you haven’t registered and plan to go please sign up now via:

If you are planning to go to the event but not in your Triumph, Drive Festival is offering 20% off ticket price to TTC club members and friends & family.  Here’s the URL.

10th to12th September – Lighthouse Blues Festival & British Car Show

Thursday 16th September – Club Meeting at Junction Craft Brewery (Keele & St. Claire)

Derek McAllister has organised our next club meeting at the Junction Craft Brewery where you can enjoy a tour and tasting.  An invitation has already been sent but if you haven’t registered yet go to

Sunday 19th September – Milton to Campbellville Drive

While we can’t replace British Car Day, Terence has designed a drive for BCD Sunday starting in Milton and ending in Campbellville for lunch.  You will be receiving an invite shortly.

Hagerty Maple Mille – 24th to 26th September 2021

There are a few spots left for the Maple Mille; click here for more information Maple Mille information page   Dave Hord, the organiser from Classic Car Adventures, has this to say.  This year’s route will take us on roads never traveled, to towns we’ve never been before, and we’re using hotels and venues that are all new for the event. You might see a favourite road in Muskoka, but I can promise you this isn’t another weekend of Muskoka driving! You will need to read the supplementary regulations (information) document before entering, as it contains details you need to know, like the cancellation policy which is different from previous years. 

30th September to 3rd October – 6-Pack Trials, Richmond, VA

Assuming the US border is open to Canadian travellers, the 6-Pack 2021 TRials event is definitely a “GO”.  For more details go to the 6-Pack Facebook page at or send an e-mail to

I do hope that you are managing to enjoy some of the TTC events and let’s hope they continue well into the fall.    Should you have any questions, please call me.

Cheers; Dave

Dave Sims, President Toronto Triumph Club
