All Triumph and Standard Day 2011

The Triumph Car Club of WA held its All Triumph and Standard Day at Stirling Square, Guildford on November 13 2011. Weather was overcast but otherwise pleasant, together with a good turn out of cars and spectators I declare this car show was a success.

Stirling Square, as I’ve mention before is an excellent location for smaller car shows like this, with plenty of easy parking and facilities such as shops and toilets close by.

There was a nice range of cars on display though mostly it was classic Triumphs from the 1960’s and 70’s such as the TR6’s,TR7’s, Heralds along with Stag’s and bread and butter classics such as the 2500TC’s.

On with the show… I present photos from the All Triumph & Standard Day 2011.

Targa West Rally Car Display Langley Park

As part of the 2011 Targa West Rally, the Perth super stage at Langley Park saw a display of interesting historic racing cars and cars from other car clubs which was combined with the rally event on Sunday 28 August. Amongst the car clubs there were: Vintage Sports Car Club of WA, HSV Owners Club of WA, WA Toyota Car Club, Street Car Racing Association of WA & Triumph Sports Owners Association of WA.

Overall this was a very well organised and planned event by Targa West with a well-chosen central location that was quite accessible. In addition, it had plenty of facilities such as food and toilets provided for the spectators and competitors. Best of all, entry was free!
