“VTR Nationals are the largest gathering of Triumph cars in the US and we expect over 150 cars this year. Each year we honor one specific car at the convention, and this year we are honoring the 1969 TR6,” remarked Don Couch, President of the Hill Country Triumph Club.
The schedule of events for the annual convention includes rallies, autocross, autojumble, parts vendor sales and a judged concours d’elegance and participant’s choice car show. The car show will be held on historic Mercer Street on Wednesday October 9th, from 10am to 2pm. Mercer Street will be closed during the car show and the public is invited to attend.
“We’re really excited about having an invasion of British Triumphs in our town! Not only will it be fun having them around all week, but the convention will be a positive economic impact for the community and is expected to bring in over $100,000.00 for the greater Dripping Springs area,” said Pam Owens, President/ CEO of the Dripping Springs Visitors Bureau.
