Merry Christmas - 2013

The weather is not yet this bad here but it is a lovely, seasonal, snowy scene and yes, this really is a picture of Middezoy in sunny Somerset in deep winter.

Last week we compiled a short newsletter with Christmas opening times and a Christmas card to everyone. Please click on the attached link to view the card and our holiday opening times.

We are now looking forward to producing more blogs, newsletters and facebook posts in 2014 to keep you up to date with the latest news from Revington TR. In the meantime, have a great Christmas and New Year.

RevingtonTR Open Day - Saturday 5th April 2014

I am  pleased to announce we will once again be holding our open day in 2014. This year it will be held on Saturday 5th April. For those who have not attended before we try to fit in as much information regarding TR's and other TR related classic cars as possible into the day.
With our own cars in attendance and many great examples of customers TR's and other marques you are sure to find something you like. For the rest of the family there is plenty to see and enjoy in the local area. There is shopping at Clarks in Street, local wildlife parks and many, many walks. Taunton is also only 20 minutes away. For those who have attended before I hope you can join us again. Please let your local club know and maybe have a club rally as we are possibly the first drive of the year. 
We already have a tyre specialist lined up to join us and impart his knowledge and wisdom on the subject of tyres for the road and racing, at least at club level. Superpro Europe will also have a display and will be able to answer all of your questions relating to polyurethane bushes.We will have a presentation by Neil on a subject yet to be finalised but if there is anything you are keen to know more about please let us know and we can add your subject to the list of options. 


We look forward to you joining us on the 5th April 2014.  If you would like any further information please contact us on any of the numbers listed below.

What will You be Doing over the Next Few Months?

Whatever it is - remember Revington TR

It looks like the best of the weather is now behind us. If you are thinking of mothballing your car for the winter or getting ready to get on with that winter project don't forget to give us a call for all your TR needs.
1. How about an indoor or outdoor car cover RTR9085, 9086, 9086B for TR2-3 or RTR9087.9088,9088B for TR4-6.

2. If you are thinking of adding antifreeze then consider Evans waterless coolant first. No water, no pressure - it really is a no brainer. Order RTR5205-1-5 and RTR5205-2-5
3 What about a nice halogen conversion to replace those low power bulbs if you have not already realised what a difference they make. If you really want to light up the road consider our PIAA bulb alternatives. Check our web site or give us a call for more details.
4. We even have something that the lady passengers and cold blooded drivers always appreciate, the RevingtonTR heater upgrade kit RTR1395K, RTR1396-1K and RTR1396-2K. These are always well received.
Finally, sorry but it has to be said, with Christmas fast approaching (less than 13 weeks now) it might be time to start considering getting your request in early or giving a gentle prompt for a little something for the car. From gift tokens, models, DVD's to more specific items, you know we can supply most things.
We look forward  to hearing from you shortly. Have a great day.

Triumph Beta takes to the Road

Neils latest project received its MOT this week making it roadworthy for the first time! The Triumph Beta was a development project that paired a TR3A body to a TR4 chassis. This meant the body needed wider wheel arches to cope with the wider tracked TR4 chassis - but Neil didn't stop there. It is now fitted with a tweeked Triumph 6 cylinder engine and a complete Revington TR suspension package. To see the latest faceboook posts visit RevingtonTR on facebook.We will be publishing more photos and details in the near future but for now please have a look at the photos below to  see the latest stage of the still to be finished project. (Seat and harness were to get through the test only and will be changed when we have the correct parts).

New Project Nearing Completion -

    And it's looking good!
Neil Revingtons Latest Project -
It will be used in the Revington TR & TR Register Hillclimb and Sprint Championship
Neil Revingtons latest project is now well on its way to completion. With a great spray job in black and little silver styling panels it really is looking good. It's a super looking car with a few suprises under the bonnet that I'm sure will be of interest to most of our TR friends.
It will be making its show debut at the TR International, Malvern in August 2013. If you can make the show come along and see the  (hopefully) completed vehicle.
It will also be out on the championship circuit at the tail end of this year (2013). It will be interesting to see how these "little surprises" work out on the track, watch this space!

 Once it is completed we will let you have the full story and photos of this great little car. See it at Malvern or wait for our blog update in the near future.

Mintex Brake Pads

- For Your Classic Car

RevingtonTR have a range of fantastic Mintex brake pads and a few shoes suitable for many classic cars.
Why do we think Mintex is the best? Well , we came to this conclusion after actually fitting the pads to cars and driving it - Hard! By testing a number of different pad materials from different manufactures  Neil Revington identified Mintex to be the best performing product. We also have a limited number of fast road materials (M1144) as well as race (M1155/M1166)

The brake pads and a limited number of shoes, fit across many marques from AC onto Aston Martin through BMW, Ferrari to Volkswagen and Wolesley. The quantities we have are limited so give us a call and see if we can help supply you or your club. (Trade enquiries are also welcome). Listed below are the Mintex part numbers, if you have the pad number you can see if we currently have it in stock (27/6/13). We have a cross reference file available for most marques so we should be able to track down the pad you need. I hope we can help  and we look forward to your call.
Prices vary so please call us on the number below for the latest price.

RevingtonTR - Newsletter - Summer 2013

Our regular customers will be aware that we try to send out a Newsletter once a month but it is usually once a quarter or even longer. Here is the Newsletter from June 2013. Some of the content refers back to the blog but please feel free to view the Newsletter and sign up for future editions.

Blyton Test Day June 2013- A Short Video.

Here is a short video from the Blyton Test Day. (It is shakey in places but it does give a good feel for the circuit and the type of day it was). It shows the ex works Triumph TR4 - 6VC with Natalie Revington at the controls. In the passenger seat is Neil Revington, the cars owner, helping her get to grips with the cars handling. Natalie will be competing in the RevingtonTR and TR Register Hillclimb and Sprint Championship in the near future, so improving her racecraft  is a top priority.  More news of the car she will be competing in will be announced in the coming weeks.
I'm sure you will join me in wishing Natalie good luck in the competition.

Blyton Test Day- And What a Day!

Blyton Test Day 3rd June 2013
If you missed this you missed a great day - so read on and see why you should have been there.
For us from the south of England it was a long drive up to Blyton but while we anticipated a great day of testing we could not anticipate how good it really was going to be. The team from Revington, Neil, Sue, Marcus, Natalie and Toby Cole set off on Sunday to ease the pain of the journey. Staying in the area overnight on Sunday made the start to the day a lot easier for them.

Sunday dawned with a forecast for a clear day with very low wind and for once the forecast was correct. Clear blue skies from start to finish with only a hint of a breeze. The race-box and awning were erected to provide sun shade  rather than cover from the rain and the  test day began.

We took 6VC so that Marcus, Natalie and Toby could see how the car performed and get to grips with its handling. After the safety briefing the car was on the go all day with only short breaks for drivers and car to allow both to take a short breather and advantage of the free tea and coffee that was on offer all day. The track was busy the whole day with the 20 cars and 50 drivers exploring both their own and their cars limits. It truly was a great circuit to have a test day with wide run off areas, no Armco or other barriers to spoil someones day.
We took a few spares from stock to support the event, normal service items that we thought drivers might need during the day, oil, plugs, points, belts etc but fortunately we did not need to open the boxes.

Neil said that “it was great a day giving Marcus Natalie and Toby an opportunity to explore the cars limits without the pressure of being in a competitive environment and on such a wide open circuit. This will give them a great start to a new season which I know they are all looking forward to”.

We are already being asked when the next day will be. We are fairly certain there will be another so watch out for the next date and make sure you book your slot, you will not be disappointed.

TR International Weekend August 9th-11th 2013

Get the Date in your Diary

It’s that time of year once again. Time to start thinking about the TR Register International Weekend. In case you did not know, this year’s event is being held at Three counties Showground Malvern on the 9th -11th August and of course we will be there. We are hoping for another great weekend as usually it’s only the weather that tries spoils it. This year we will be in the main WYE HALL on stand L9 and L10 in the same area as the TR Register stand, so we should be easy to find. As usual we will have cars on display, special offers and staff available to answer any questions. This is a great social event as well as a fantastic showcase for the cars and products. We hope you can make it and look forward to seeing you there.

Anti Roll bar for a TR2-TR3

We recently wrote about our range of suspension kits and how good we and our customers around the world think they are. If you have thought your TR2-3 could benefit from a front anti roll bar but not the size used for our usual fast road or race kits then RevingtonTR  now have the answer for you.

We have now developed a limited edition Front anti roll bar kit for TR2-TR3 that uses an anti -roll bar from a TR6 together with new bracketry and fixings from RevingtonTR. The 5/8” anti - roll bar has been powder coated to improve life and appearance and will also improve the handling at a reasonable cost. That’s a win win situation in our book. Why not have a look at the kit RTR3050 via the attached link and get your order in today. This is a limited edition kit and we do not expect it to be around long.

RevingtonTR Suspension Modifications-An Independant View

At RevingtonTR we have always been happy in the knowledge that our suspension kits give a massive improvement over the original specification.  As the article below says, “a lot can happen in 50 years”.  Ride and handling is greatly improved by new spring rates, anti-roll bars, damper settings and in the materials used. But don’t just take our word for it, see what a customer has to say by clicking on the link to the article from Hemming’s Sports and Exotic Car Magazine.

The RevingtonTR kits are available for all TR’s and come in several different  specifications for different requirements and set ups. Why not have a look at the article and give us a call if you are interested in upgrading your TR. We look forward to speaking to you shortly and helping you to enjoy your TR to the full by fitting a RevingtonTR  Suspension package.

HERO - In a TR3

Here are a few words from one of our customers who has just completed a rally in his TR3. If you have any reports of events or adventures you have had in your TR please let us know and we  will get them posted on our blog.
TNX900 (1955 TR3 with TR3A front apron) just arrived back in the UK from the HERO London to Lisbon Classic Rally.  Over the 9 days, and nearly 3,000 miles, the car was close behind the 911’s on the tests, no doubt helped by the suspension mods from Neil et al.  Unfortunately the driver and navigator did not perform quite as well on the regularity sections and only finished the event about half way down, or up, the field.   Fast driving on Southern European roads in nearly 30 degrees did result in some problems and the fellow competitors were getting a little tired of giving push starts after the starter motor failed on day 3 of 9.  However, Carl provided excellent service shipping a new motor to Portugal which, once fitted, provided excellent and fast starting that saved great embarrassment in front of the Portuguese crowds when the driver stalled the car on a start/stop test ascending the famous Caramulo hill climb.   Now in the rather cold and wet UK the car and occupants are looking forward to some rest and recuperation.

What a week!!

Don't Forget Your Touring Kit (and sun block)

Well the sun has certainly brought all of the cars out of storage this week, finally. In the UK it has been a delayed start to the spring/summer seasons and I think it has been the same in most of Europe but now those wheels are turning.

Enjoy the hood down driving but don't forget to carry out the necessary service checks on a regular basis. If it gets too hot under the bonnet don't forget about Evans Classic cool 180 to help keep your pressure down. Mintex brake pads and shoes for improved stopping performance are a must and then making sure you have your required oil for top up and emergencies. What about a few service items for the spares when you go touring? Plugs, fan belt, bulbs, rotor arm, condenser, some even take a water pump and fuel pump. RevingtonTR can help with all of your standard service parts as well as any upgrades you may be thinking of.

Now's the time to enjoy the car so don't let a minor breakdown spoil your break. Please give us a call if there is something we can help you with. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Have a great holiday weekend (UK).

Jigsaw Race - Snetterton UK - April 14th 2013

Mark and Joe of Jigsaw racing Services have once given us the opportunity to race other Triumphs in their 20 minute invitation race, this time at Snetterton.

The grid consisted of 14 Triumphs and Triumph derivatives, ranging from David Bailey’s very rapid 2400cc TR4, a Dolomite sprint, a smattering of other TR’s a range of Spitfires, GT6 and Vitesse and Celia Stevens in here 3.5 Litre Warwick.

Practice was damp with dry patches which ensured we were all up to 2 seconds off the pace. David Bailey took pole with Tony Crudgington’s Dolomite 2nd, Phillip Lambe’s TR6 3rd, Clive Gimson’s GT6 4th, My TR5 5th and Celia Stevens Warwick 6th.

The race was a clean fight as they say, with no contact which is always good. David’s TR4 streaked away from the start and I managed to get alongside Phillip as I saw Celia streak ahead out of the corner of my eye taking several places. For a while Celia was in front of Clive whilst the front 3 were steadily pulling away but Clive eventually got past Celia and set off after the others.

That left Celia and I to battle it out, for 5th and 6th. Time and again I was able to get right up close and personal and on a few occasions past her on the corners but on each occasion the significant extra power of the Warwick’s 3.5 litre engine meant that Celia could easily steam past on the straight so that the same scene could be played out at the next corner. Celia peddled the Warwick really well considering it runs on Cross ply tyres and after the race we has a good laugh and big smiles recounting our dicing and agreed that whilst the TR5 might have handled better, there is no substitute for cubes as the Americans say.

David Bailey took the chequered flag and the order up to 6th stayed the same as the starting grid with the exception of Celia and I swapping places; grrr!

Congratulations to David for winning which I believe is his first racing victory in 40 years of competition, so a very special day indeed.

Very special thanks to Jo and Mark for organising and I hope they organise a similar event next year. I will be there if other commitments allow if they do.

TR4 1962 Police Car - NOW SOLD - July 2014

For a Driver or Collector

Many  of you will have followed the detailed refurbishment of the Police car owned by Neil Revington over the past couple of years. You may even have seen it at the TR International or several other shows around the country. Some of the details have been published on this Blog and in our Facebook postings. Well, now you could own this car! Neil has decided to sell the car. It was recently offered for sale at the  "Historics at Brooklands" auction on the 1st June 2013. With the original registration, 4100 HJ as seen on the original Police photos, it was a big draw but - it failed to reach the reserve price. Neil is now offering the car for sale privately.

Thanks For a Great Day - Open Day 2013

A big thank you to all of those who attended our Open Day on Saturday making it the great success it turned out to be. Once again the sun shone on us throughout the day and the temperature rose a few degrees over what it has been for the last few weeks. Those few degrees made all the difference when standing outside admiring all of those wonderful cars. It really did feel like early spring, once the morning chill had been blown away. With some visitors having a round trip of over 300 miles to be with us, an early start was required and I know it wasn’t quite so warm then. It would not surprise me if so many flying jackets and helmets had been in one place since the battle of Britain! But it did warm up and turned out to be a very pleasant day. Sue’s tea and coffee also did the job of getting those early arrivals warmed back up again.

Our "Display stand"
We really did have a great mix of TR’s arrive and all appeared to be in great condition. Our car park was more of a display stand, with all of the cars on show rather than the normal mix on the car park. Cars were parked on both sites, so you really did need to walk around to see them all. With so many cars and TR enthusiasts our visitors were able to swop notes and learn from each others experiences.

More Cars Arriving

Notes and Views being Swapped

TR Roadster in Background and "Prohibtion" in foreground

We had a great looking Triumph Roadster arrive, Ian Pauls rally TR and once again many more TR5’s than you would expect.  We also had a “Hot Rod”/”Funny Car” with a very strong Americana feel to it. Most people did notice the “Tommy Gun” in its rack in the passenger footwell, obviously not a guy to mess with.


Graham Robson and Neil Revington

Our guest presenters made themselves available for questions on their specialist subject throughout the day. Graham Robson teamed up with Neil for some banter and informative background on TR’s. Superpro Europe Polyurethane bush specialists also had a great display and had a steady stream of interested parties throughout the day. Nathan from Evans waterless Coolants also spread the word regarding their great product and also had several discussions with potential customers .

Prototype TR5 on display in the Courtyard

The tea, coffee, biscuits and cakes are finished and now it’s time to start planning for next year. I hope you are able to make it then and join in what is always a great day for us and visitors alike. See you in 2014.
