MANCHESTER GROUP’S SUCCESS AT TATTON PARK
Part of the lineup of Standards on Sunday
The Manchester and North West Group has again achieved success by being awarded fourth place out of the 90 Club stands at the prestigious Tatton Park Classic Car Show and Giant Autojumble that was held over the weekend of 31st May and the 1st June, 2008. As well as the Group stand netting this splendid placement two members were given awards for their cars one of whom was Andrew Davis with his magnificent Big Nine that won Best Pre WW2 saloon. The weather on the Saturday was fine and sunny but Sunday produced rain for most of the day.
Graham Hart our newly appointed Show Manager did a magnificent job and was expertly assisted by Alex Robertson Assistant Show Manager and again newly appointed. Alex is also the Manchester Group’s photographer and attends most of the Group’s events. It was wonderful to welcome Mike Wilks as an exhibitor with his rare 1963 Standard 7 cwt Pick Up. Mike also gave much valuable assistance in erecting the Stand and dismantling it at the end of the show. We now regard him as a Manchester Group member as he frequently supports the Group with his presence and excellently represents our Parent Club at many of our events – thank you Mike.

The Manchester Group welcomes new members and attracts some 30 to 40 attendees at each of its meetings that are held at the Albany Hotel, Heywood, Near Rochdale, Lancashire. We are a friendly Group so please come and join us. Our aim is to promote interest in Standard and Triumph cars and to revive awareness in the great Standard Triumph marque in the North of England. As out letterhead states – Helping to Preserve Britain’s Heritage.
Finally, thanks again to Graham Hart and Alex Robertson for presenting a magnificent display in the name of Standard Triumph.
