Don't be Scared by the Winter, Embrace it!

Here at Revington TR we believe TRs should be used all year round but most owners are discouraged with the slightest hint of inclement weather. Worrying that bodywork will be damaged from the wet or heater systems can't cope with the cold, or simply not being able to see where you’re going.

Thankfully Revington TR are here to help with upgrades such as underwing shields and wax oiling protecting your bodywork. High performance heater systems keeping you warm in the winter months and in combination with Upgraded wiper systems keeping your view of the road clear.

So why not treat your car to an upgrade and enjoy TR Motoring all year round!

Ambi’ling through India

India, a stunning country with traffic conditions being just as stunning! Neil & Sue Revington tell the story of their trip through the back roads of Kerala in a Hindustan Ambassador on Classic Journeys India Road Rally.

Wow, what a driving experience! Driving in India is something that very few English people have done and the experience can be both terrifying and exciting at the same time. However in an Ambassador, affectionately known as an Ambi, we certainly had the right tool for the job. He comfortably got us across 1,300 miles of rough Indian back roads during this wonderful and eventful rally.
The event is organised by Steve McCullagh of and after having read an article about the event in Octane Magazine, I thought I would contact Steve to learn more about the rally. I was astonished to find that he lives 100m from where we hold our monthly local TR Meeting so Steve and I agreed it would be a good idea if he gave a talk to the TR Club. This happened in January this year and as a consequence of this not only did we sign up, but our friends Mike and Jacky Tidball decided to come along and take part as well.

saw turmoil within the British motor industry. But through it all the
TR survived and brought the Triumph name acclaim and recognition

[DVD] Story of the Triumph Stag - Code Name Stag


Triumph Stag: The Legendary 2+2 Sporting Grand Tourer

The Stag was a new concept for a mass produced British car; this was a grand tourer to compete with brands such as Alfa Romeo and Mercedes boasting an all new V8 engine, styling by Giovanni Michelotti and a marketing campaign aimed squarely at the young executive. Yet despite all this, the car was a financial failure for British Leyland with less than 26,000 cars built during its seven year production run.

However, soon after the cessation of production in 1977 and despite all the problems, the Stag quickly attained classic status. As a result a high percentage of these cars have survived and are still providing enjoyment to thousands of Triumph enthusiasts all over the world.

This film charts the history of the car from its origins right up to the present day featuring archive footage and images, input from former Triumph engineers, Triumph historians and Stag enthusiasts along with new footage of the surviving prototypes, press cars and other imprtant Stags shot exclusively for this release. Purchase Code Name: Stag, Michelotti's Masterpiece from Revington TR today.

[DVD] Story of the Triumph TR7 & 8 - Code Name Bullet


TR7: The Iconic Retro Wedge of the 70's

The biggest selling of all the Triumph TR sports cars and the last of the line


The car did not have an easy life. It was conceived and engineered at a time when the British motor industry was in turmoil; build quality was poor; it didn't have the performance to match its looks and many commentators could not understand its futuristic styling. Ultimately the surviving cars have proved the critics wrong and become sought after, eye catching, classic sports cars. Buy this DVD Now from Revington TR

French Revolution Rally 2010

7th – 11th June
I have taken part in the French Revolution Rally a few times in the past with friends and last time with Marcus, my son. This year Sue, my wife and I entered in our Works Rally TR4.
The nature of the event, for those not familiar, is of a road regularity rally. Some regularity rally’s can be a little tedious, with long stretches of straight roads having to be run at 50kph. This is not the case with the French Revolution, which is by comparison, fast and furious.

TR4A, 250, 5, BRAND NEW Sidelamp/Flasher Repeater Lamps

As Good As, If Not Better Than The Original

Revington TR and the TR Register’s Spares Development Fund (SDF) are pleased to announce the re-introduction of these lamps, which were first displayed in the arena and then on the Revington TR stand at the International Weekend at Malvern 2010.

The aim of the project has been to recreate the lamps as near as practically possible to the original product. We are pleased to say that this goal has not only been achieved but we believe exceeded. In an effort to ensure the quality of the product would be up to scratch, we started by commissioning the main body, as we knew this would potentially be a showstopper. After protracted development, the first and then the second prospective manufacturers were sacked! The third insisted on a 3D model and the production of plastic prototypes to prove the drawing, before launching tooling. The tooling was signed-off early in 2010 after very careful scrutiny to ensure the metal thickness was correct and general form matched the samples. As a result, the final die-casting is virtually indistinguishable from the original part - apart from a lack of pitting!

Typical features which have been carefully reproduced are: the bull nose ends to the flutes and the curvature of the body where it sits against the wing. This has been checked against original parts on new, unused, Stanpart wings.

All gaskets bulb holders and lenses are to original shape and form, thus ensuring that all new parts are interchangeable with original parts, even down to the type of bulbs used. The photograph shows the first pair off the tools. Note that, as shown here, the amber lens does not have its lettering, but this has been added on production parts. All the parts have original markings - this is permitted as we have authority, for a fee, from the holder of the Lucas trademark.
