AGM 2018 News

 Here is a short report on the November 24th 2018 AGM, the minutes will be published in Triple Echo in due course. As you will see we are entering a new era for the club with some changes in the committee. I would like to thank to ones that are standing down who have served the club so well over the previous years. David Lord during his time as Treasurer has turned the finances of the club round and leaves us on a very sound footing. Dave Smith for many years has been the Editor of our Triple Echo and really I cant find enough words to describe the sterling job he has done on every issue. Martin Rawson has also passed on his role as Events Sec. In his time in this post he has delivered the members some really great Beezumph Rallies and they are still proving as popular as ever as a result of his efforts.

 I would like to welcome onto the committee Les Davies and Fin Colson as our new Editor and Events Sec.respectively. Thanks to both for filling these vital roles. The Webmaster role has been temporarily taken on by Richard Davies but as a non committee member, thanks Richard, contact him on website@tr3oc.com for anything to be included on the website. 

 Three Trophies were awarded on the day to David Lord, Founders Cup for his services as Treasurer, Ian Bradshaw Slippery Sam Trophy for his work in the I. O. M helping to deliver the TR3OC stand at the Classic Manx. The Transatlantic Trophy was awarded to Pete Bates for his services to the club over many years.

 Thanks to everyone who attended the AGM weekend and again to the guys who have taken up committee posts, we still need a Treasurer though so please come forward if you think you can help

TT HERO IS BEEZUMPH 27 GUEST OF HONOUR

7We are proud to announce that TT hero Tony Jefferies will be Guest of Honour for Beezumph 27 on July 13th & 14th. Tony will give a special talk covering his racing career on the Friday evening and present the event awards on the Saturday.

Tony Jefferies (born 24 April 1948) is a former Grand Prix motorcycle road racer. However it was his success aboard the iconic triples on the Isle of Man that etched a place in the hearts of triple enthusiasts.

In 1969 Tony started a stunning TT career, achieving six podiums in five years, including three wins, two second places and a third place finish. While Tony successfully rode a range of machines both English and Japanese his place in the affection of the Trident and Rocket 3 Owners Club was sealed when in 1971 he won the Formula 750 TT and finished second in the Production 750 TT against the might of home and oriental factory teams. In 1972 he occupied the second step on the winners rostrum in the F750 TT. Remarkably a year later Tony Jefferies pulled of a win in the 750 Production TT and a third place in the F750 TT, all riding  the Trident three cylinder marvels.

Outside the racing arena Tony, Managing Director of Allan Jefferies Motorcycles, added the BMW franchise in 1971 and in 1973 his race career ended following a serious crash. In 1995 Tony opened a solus BMW showroom in Shipley and in 2010 opened a new state of the art 16,000 sq ft BMW showroom, Tony’s daughter Louise has taken over the day-to-day running of the business. Today, Allan Jefferies is BMW’s longest serving dealer (46 years) and its biggest UK dealer.
