GTR 12 – German Triple Run
Aug 17 – Aug 19 all-day
Classic TT Week I.O.M. @ Isle of Man
Aug 24 – Aug 27 all-day

The TR3OC will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of our iconic British triples at the 2018 Classic TT Races presented by Bennetts. TR3OC is organising a spectacular display of both road and racing triples together with associated memorabilia.

Tridents are the most successful  production racer ever at the TT winning six consecutive production class races on the island

Visitors to the Isle of Man during the Classic TT will be able to see a comprehensive collection of motorcycles including the rebuilt Slippery Sam, courtesy of the National Motorcycle Museum as well as the first Triumph Trident to be raced around the famous Mountain Course in 1969 – the Hughes Triumph that was ridden by Martin Carney.

A dozen more notable race bikes will also be displayed as well as a selection of artist John Hancox’s pen and ink drawings. John is a Technical Illustrator whose work can be seen every time a Triumph Trident Parts Manual is opened.

Along with the racing legends the display will feature a definitive collection of road bikes. Starting with a 1969 Aquamarine T150 together with UK and US examples of various bikes, including Hurricane, Rocket 3’s T150V’s and T160’s.

The Trident model that completed a 24 hour sponsored ride around the TT Course for the Manx Grand Prix Helicopter Fund and will again be raising funds for this great  cause at the display with the obligatory collecting buckets. In addition a replica Travelling Marshal’s Trident and the original marshals bike that was ridden by Travelling Marshal, Des Evans will be displayed for visitors. The Martin Russell Parallelogram will also be on display.

There will be a closed road parade around the TT Course on Saturday 25th August with many of the display bikes taking part. The lap will see Des Evans reunited with his Travelling Marshal’s Trident for a lap of 37 ¾ miles, while Ian Martin, TT star Guy’s father, will be riding his BSA Rocket 3.

On the morning of Sunday 26th August, the display will temporarily de-camp to Jurby Motodrome where the Vintage Motorcycle Club’s Isle of Man section host their annual Festival of Jurby event. Visitors will have the opportunity to see the world’s greatest display of Vintage and Classic motorcycles – not only on their paddock stands but also spreading the instantly recognisable aroma of Castrol R on the Jurby racetrack.

Commenting on the anniversary  Ian Bradshaw TR3OC Area Rep for the Isle of Man, said:

“None of the above would have been possible had it not been for the input of the Isle of Man Government, Department for Enterprise’s Motorsport Team and the Isle of Man’s Vintage Motorcycle Club Section as well as and importantly everyone who has allowed their bikes and memorabilia to be displayed.  I hope everyone interested in motorcycles takes the opportunity to enjoy what is the display of a lifetime.”
