***Postponed***”Race the Waves” Bridlington @ Bridlington
May 8 – May 10 all-day

TR3OC field a team of 3 3-cylinder-engined machines at Race the Waves, Bridlington, 8th to 10th May 2020

The TR3OC will this year field a team of 3 machines and have a cub stand at the annual Race the Waves event to be held over the Bank Holiday of 8th to 10th May 2020. The event, organised by Backfire Promotions, is a “Retro Theatre of Auto-motion” extravaganza that harks back to the Motoring Speed Events on the Yorkshire Sands and Post War 1950s Hot-Rodders, featuring custom cars and motorcycles. Now in its 3rd year, Race the Waves will be held on the South Shore beach at Bridlington, Yorkshire. In addition to purveyors of Steampunk, Alternative Lifestyle and Goth, and displays of classic motorcycles and scooters, Race the Waves includes a beach race run along the lines of a sprint competition between 2 machines.

TR3OC has entered 3 very different machines for the beach races on the Saturday and Sunday. The machines, kindly loaned for the event by John Young, are a triple-powered race car, a triple-powered off-road outfit, and just for a bit of normality a triple-powered Jim Rice BSA flat track replica. The flat track replica is based on the Trackmaster BSA Rocket 3 tuned by Tom Cates and ridden to race success in the Sedalia 25 Mile National by Jim Rice. It also featured in “On Any Sunday” and set a land speed record at Bonneville Salt Flats. [John Young, John Syme, Ian Strong. The beach at Bridlington will resonate with the howl of three-cylinder motorcycle engines on full chat, reminiscent of the halcyon days of the Triumph Trident and BSA Rocket 3 racers of the Transatlantic Trophy races in the early 1970s in the UK, and the iconic “Slippery Sam” Trident that won 5 Isle of Man races.

The TR3OC will also have a show stand at Race the Waves with Triumph Trident and BSA Rocket 3 machines and their derivatives in the line-up. TR3OC (, a club with an international membership, is dedicated to promoting the use of BSA and Triumph push-rod engine triples and owns and restored the P1 prototype Trident. The club supports riding events and runs Beezumph, its annual track-based rally. Beezumph 29 ( will be at Snetterton, Norfolk in the UK on 14th and 15th August this year and is themed “Prototypes”. For membership enquiries, please contact the Membership Secretary (

Thank you for wanting to join the North Wales branch of the TR3OC at our 2nd North Wales Rally on June 5/6/7. We are planning to spend a weekend in beautiful countryside enjoying great company, great bikes and great food and drink.
Once settled in on Friday we plan to have a quietish night at the local pub catching up with old friends or making new ones. On Saturday, for those who wish to participate, there will be a ride out starting at 12.00 of roughly 90 miles through the beautiful Welsh countryside riding through both mountains, moor and seaside, stopping off for refreshments along the way. If you don’t fancy a ride out there are beautiful walks locally or why not take the steam train from the station adjacent to the campsite to Llangollen for some sight-seeing.
Saturday evening will involve retiring to the local pub once more where we will enjoy a BBQ, musical entertainment, talking bo**ocks and even a dance or two.
You will need to pre-book your pitch with the campsite mentioning TR3OC upon which you will receive a reduced rate of £10 per pitch (Tent, Motorhome/camper) per night (without electric) or £20 per pitch per night (with electric hook-up) There are also camping pods available at £30 per night. These are basic, no beds, but can accommodate 2 double airbeds so sleep 4 people.
We will then ask for a contribution of £10 per person towards the BBQ and entertainment.
Sunday is pack up and make your way home once more enjoying some lovely riding country.
A cooked breakfast (£7.95) is available from the pub on both mornings.
Once you have booked with the campsite please drop me an email confirming your attendance so I can keep a tab on numbers and please also include whether you require breakfasts from the pub and any dietary requirements for the BBQ.

On the Saturday, we’ll be riding via St Mary’s Loch (the largest loch in the Borders) to Moffat, where there are plenty options for a light lunch as well as a petrol station, before returning via the Devil’s Beef Tub. If anyone prefers an alternative outing, the classic racing is on at East Fortune that weekend, with triples in action on the track.

A meal will be arranged in the hotel on Saturday evening with the option of £17.50 for two courses (check if your personal choices would be cheaper before booking the fixed rate). After packing the bikes on Sunday morning those who wish to will set off for a 32 mile ride south to Denholm Green, to see the classic and vintage bikes and cars setting off on the annual Jimmie Guthrie Memorial run, before heading home.

The hotel has seven en-suite rooms, each with three single beds, priced at £90/night for two sharing and £100 for three. A hot buffet breakfast is an additional £7.50pp. Please book direct with the hotel quoting TR3OC to ensure you get the wine/beer deal and confirm attendance to me so I can ensure dining settings are appropriate.

Camping is £12 for one person and £20 for two sharing. Motorhomes and caravans can also be accommodated and breakfasts can be had at Glentress Hotel.

The hotel owner has offered to arrange for local self-catering or B&B accommodation if the hotel becomes full.

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s event.

Llangollen International Motorcycle Festival @ Royal International Pavilion
Aug 1 – Aug 2 all-day


Royal International Pavilion, Abbey Road, Llangollen LL20 8SW


LlanBikeFest is run by a group of North Wales enthusiasts who are mad about bikes of all kinds – on road, off road, racing, touring, classics and custom. If they have two wheels (or three at a pinch), we love ‘em. That’s why LlanBikeFest is an ‘International Festival of Motorcycling’. A celebration of biking – not just a show.

The TR3OC will have a club stand, so come and see us at this excellent event.

GTR 14 – German Triple Run
Aug 7 – Aug 9 all-day

A meeting for riders and friends of the old BSA and TRIUMPH Triples. That was the idea of the GERMAN TRIPLE RUN.

Two mates, Ralph and Martin had the idea and were crazy enough, to host the first meeting in their private homes with the help of their families and friends in 2007.

Without any idea how it ends, they planned two meetings. The first in Borgholzhausen, the second one year later in Weertzen. Surprised from the success – at first attempt there were 16 of these fantastic bikes on the ground – it was clear that this meeting became a regular feature. In the meantime there is a third organizer joining thr GTR family – Francis.

From year to year more guests arrives, many of them from other European countries. Over the years we had guests from Netherlands, Finland, United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Denmark, Austria and Switzerland. The visitors record was 33 competitors on bikes plus partners and friends.

The main attraction naturally is the ride on bikes together on Saturday. When do you have the opportunity to ride out with 30 other roaring British triples in a row? This picture and sound – unforgettable!

Never been here? Have we awakened your interest?

We are looking forward to you!
