Formed in 1975 by a group of young TR enthusiasts the TR Register has maintained as key tenants;
· The preservation and promotion of the TR marquee by provision of relevant services, activities and investments.
· The fostering of amateur motoring and sporting events, social functions and outings through the fellowship of likeminded enthusiasts.
The journey from 1975 has seen the membership grow to over 300 committed enthusiasts served by 8 regional groups throughout New Zealand.
Classic car ownership is a medium where for many of us we realise our dreams and aspirations of owning the vehicles that we relate to. The club offers many dimensions to membership all of which assist in meeting each of our areas of interest.
As owners are custodians of each TR, from the outset of the club a register of the TR cars in New Zealand has been maintained. This living document records the provenance of each car and is available to each member or prospective member looking to invest in a TR.
Advantages of membership include regular club events, these being the chance to get the TR out on the road with others of the marque, technical support for regular servicing or restoration but moreover being able to tap into the collective knowledge of the many experienced members is a major benefit, some of whom have owned TRs for 30 years or more.
The British sports car is a fickle mechanical mechanism. A major advantage of membership is the large stock of spares the TR Register holds for all models to assist with keeping the TR on the road. Those members requiring non stocked parts can participate in the bi-annual indent scheme the club organises on behalf of the members.
Each year, the main event on the TR calendar is the National Weekend. A 3 day affair held in early March followed by a 4 day tour, this event is well attended and a chance for all members to not only catch up but to stretch the legs of their TR along with many others.
“TRansmission” the club magazine is published quarterly; this high quality magazine is compiled by our own editorial team. Contributions cover topics of regional updates, technical topics, restoration articles and the like. An example of the publication is on this website where you will see the comprehensive content.
Membership of the TR Register is modest for the benefit it brings, the greater the participation the greater the benefit you will receive from membership. Browse the website and you will see that the club is vibrant and most importantly encourages us all to get our classic out on the road where it is in its element. If you are considering acquiring a TR then make contact with any of our committee or your local Group Leader who will willingly provide all assistance and encouragement you need to realise the dream of owning a quintessential British sports car the Triumph Roadster.
