Concours Winner 2019

The club is run by an annually elected management committee of volunteers. There are correspondents throughout the UK, Europe, North America and in Australia and New Zealand. The club is an excellent point of reference for sourcing spares and providing technical information regarding the restoration and operation of Roadsters. On these pages you can find details of membership, a list of relevant events, and browse our photograph album. Club membership gives you access to the Members Section, where you will find current and past copies of the club magazine with technical index, officials directory, a forum to discuss roadster matters, library, and the on-line store containing manuals, regalia, and spares.

The next TRCL Annual Rally will take place on Sunday 19th September 2021 at
The Mercure Walton Hall Hotel and Spa.

Browsers


  • It has been reported that some internet browsers do not display the pop-up window for entering the Members Section access codes.
    This is not a fault with the TRCL website. If it is a problem for you:
    • Check the screen for a message and button asking if you wish to 'Allow' the pop-up window.
    • Minimise the browser window to check if the pop-up window is being displayed in the background behind it.
      This was a known fault with Microsoft's latest browser.
    • Ensure that your browser has been updated to the latest version.
    • If your browser is automatically updated, check the browser settings for blocking pop-up windows.
      These will be found in the browser menu, under headings such as Parameters, Options, or Settings.
    • For Windows 10 browsers, guidance can be found by entering 'windows 10 blocking pop-up windows' into a search engine.
    • You may need to add triumphroadster.org.uk as an exception in the blocking settings.
    • There is evidence that automatic updates are defaulting to blocking pop-up windows.
      Therefore you may need to re-set the parameters after each update.

  • Some members have experienced a repeated 401 message, which implies that the user name and password are incorrect. This would seem to be another error with Microsoft software.
    For this and in general for most other browser errors:
    • Clear cookies, history, and cache.
    • Ensure the latest browser version is installed.
    • Check all browser settings, and amend if necessary.
The Webmaster cannot solve these problems for you. Please seek local help if necessary.

Links

U.K.


Within the United Kingdom there are a number of regional Centres providing contacts between members, and organising local events (see Contacts page in the Members Section).
In addition TRCL has loose associations with the Pre-1940 Triumph Motor Club, the Triumph Razoredge Owners Club and the Mayflower Club, and from time to time combined events are held with one or more of these.

 Pre-1940 Triumph Motor Club
 Triumph Razoredge Owners Club
 Triumph Mayflower Club

TRCL is a member club of:

The Standard Triumph Forum
Federation of British Historical Vehicle Clubs

Overseas


The Triumph Roadster Club Limited (TRCL) is incorporated in the U.K. and governed by the laws of the U.K., and it has no operations overseas. However membership can be drawn from a world-wide base, albeit with certain restricted services in some parts of the world due to insurance constraints. Members living overseas can maintain contact with the Club either directly or, in certain areas, through our overseas Correspondents as listed on the Contacts page in the Members Section.

Where there are sufficient members some Correspondents have their own private area groups such as Triumph Roadster Register Benelux. In North America the Club’s Correspondent has established a group, Triumph Roadster Club of North America to facilitate communication between Roadster owners there. This has also used the term Affiliate as providing affiliation between its members, and neither it nor other overseas groups are affiliated to the Triumph Roadster Club Limited.

Other


The details on the Club’s web site are constantly updated and only these should be referred to when making contact or enquiries.

There are a number of entries on the Internet referring to the Triumph Roadster Club/TRCL and to Regions and other groups relating to them, and in some cases they offer contact details.
These entries often appear on the sites of magazines and other clubs, groups, or individuals, and are frequently either inaccurate or out of date and they are not part of the Triumph Roadster Club.
