What is the Texas Triumph Register?
Welcome to the Texas Triumph Register website. We are glad to have the opportunity to tell you about our club and our activities.
The Texas Triumph Register (TTR) is a welcoming and very active organization of almost 200 member families. Our membership is made up of single members, couples and families. We embrace all Triumph enthusiasts whether you have a show car, race car, daily driver, boxes of car parts or no car at all. Members receive our award winning monthly newsletter called “The Bluebonnet” that is filled with Triumph related information that is of interest to our members. Membership in TTR are considered Family memberships and our members participate in a wide variety of activities throughout the year.
Saturday breakfast gatherings are held every week and the restaurant locations rotate to all parts of the Houston Metropolitan area. We normally have a good turnout of shiny Triumphs driven to these events. Although there is no formal agenda, impromptu discussions and tech sessions always result. The Breakfasts provide an excellent opportunity to meet people and pick the brains of our resident Triumph experts on matters related to repairs, maintenance and renovation of our cars. If you do not have a Triumph, or do not have a running Triumph we can offer help here also. We have a core of members with the knowledge, skills, and equipment who are willing to help when problems develop or when guidance is needed.
TTR Club meetings are held on the second Saturday of the month. These meetings are designed to attend to necessary business as required of a 501(c)(7) organization, and also provide a great social environment. Our monthly meetings are well attended by the spouses and families of TTR. Meetings are held in the homes of volunteer host members and provide a format that stimulates socialization and leisurely conversation. It also allows for member garage tours to view finished projects and work in progress. Attendees typically bring their favorite snack foods to share with the group. Normally the Hostess or Host provides their specialty main course dish or dessert and TTR reimburses them for the beverages.
Organized drives during the spring and fall of the year are a key component of Texas Triumph Register activities.
The club offers a wide array of one day and multi day drives to points of interest in the area. Most of our drives take place on Saturday, include a group lunch, and are completed before dark. The multi-day drives take us to more distant locations around South Texas and beyond. Signature TTR drive events include the Polar Bear Run in winter, the spring Bluebonnet Run, and Falling Leaves Tour in autumn. For the competitive driving enthusiast, TTR offers periodic Autocross events at the Police Academy track in Houston. Members can get a taste of the thrill of autocross and enjoy the opportunity to refine and further develop their skills. This is normally a one day event held on a Saturday.
Texas Triumph Register is an officially chartered chapter of the Vintage Triumph Register and as such participates in both VTR regional and national events. The regional events take place in Texas or the adjacent states. The national events rotate to all parts of the country. These events provide our members with the opportunity to participate in competitive Concourse, Autocross and Time Speed Distance (TSD) Rally events. They also offer fun drives and self-guided tours in the vicinity of the host city. The regional events are the most heavily attended by TTR members and many attendees enjoy driving in a group caravan to the host city.
As you can see TTR offers ample opportunities to drive your Triumph and to socialize with others who share the passion for these Little British Cars. We enjoy a strong sense of community that is unmatched. We encourage all of our members and potential members to get involved in the fun.
Drive your Triumph – we do! “
