Vintage Triumphs Coming to Ypsilanti

Posted by ppna on August 2, 2008

If you see a lot of oil on the roads in Ypsilanti don’t worry its just the 2008 North American Triumph Challenge that will be in town August 4 to August 8, 2008.

Here is some information taken from their site.
Now in it’s 30th year, the Vintage Triumph Register National Convention is going back to it’s roots in more ways than one. The VTR National Convention started as a Weekend get together between what is now the Illinois Sport Owners Association and the Detroit Triumph Sportcar Club. This get together grew into what was then known as the North American Triumph Challenge. The North American Triumph Challenge now returns to Southeast Michigan after a 24 year hiatus.

Each year, the Vintage Triumph Register holds a National Convention in North America. The Vintage Triumph Register National will be held August 4-8, 2008. It is hosted by a Chapter or Zone of the Vintage Triumph Register, this year being hosted by the Detroit Triumph Sportscar Club. Although there are many activities at a National, the prime events are based around activities with Triumphs. This year’s event will sponsor an Autocross, TSD Rallye, Fun or Gimmick Rallye, Funkana and a Concours d’Elegance car show. Special events include a Triumph Spitfire rebuild in 48 hours and a keynote address by author/columnist B.S (Burt) Levy. The Event concludes with a reception, dinner, and an awards presentation. Average attendance of a Vintage Triumph Register National has ranged from 200 to 325 cars.
