TR3OC National Rally Celebrates 50 Years of Triumph Trident T160
Newark Showground 30th & 31st August 2024
On 7th December 1974 the first of the iconic Triumph Trident T160s, T160 00257, was built at Small Heath, Birmingham, UK. Significant upgrades to the specification of its predecessor, the T150 Trident, included 3-into-4-into-2 exhaust system, rear disc brake, electric start, a forward-canted cylinder block and uprated emissions controls to satisfy increasingly stringent regulations.
Originally slated to be called the “Thunderbird III” it was ultimately named the “Trident T160” following alleged complaints regarding trade name violations!
The TR3OC celebrates this important 50th anniversary, 1974 to 2024, at our annual National Rally at the Newark Showground, Nottinghamshire, UK, NG24 2NY on 30th and 31st August 2024.
The National Rally will feature camping on the nights of Friday 30th and Saturday 31st August, a treasure hunt ride-out with prizes, autojumble, bike displays with trophies for category winners, a raffle, a band and a guest speaker. The TR3OC’s acclaimed films in the “BSA and Triumph Triples: The People, The Bikes, The racing” will be screened. There will be catering and bar. A rally badge featuring the Trident T160 is available for rally ticket holders.
Rally tickets are £35 which includes camping, a meal on Saturday night and badge. Day tickets without camping, meal or badge are £15. A vegetarian option will be available, please select the appropriate ticket when purchasing. Other catering during the rally is provided by the restaurant on-site at the Showground with a variety of food and drink options available.
