The TVR Car Club has grown to become one of the premier one-marque car clubs in the UK with a membership of over 6000 and affiliated clubs around the world. We are a Club run by and for our members, and aim to provide something for everyone interested in TVR, whether you own one of the earliest pre-Grantura models or the last Sagaris or Typhon to leave Bristol Avenue, or if you are simply enthusiastic about the marque.
We aim to promote all things TVR. As soon as you mention the phrase 'Car Club', it often conjures up the image of middle aged men in tweed caps, puffing on pipes with their head under the bonnet in pub car parks. Well we do some of that (perhaps not the tweed caps and pipes) with 50 regional meetings spread across all four corners of the UK, but we also do much more besides.
We have always argued that with the performance available in any TVR, it cannot be fully exploited on the public highway so we give our members the opportunity to drive on the race circuit at our various track days. We support TVRs in Motorsport and a large TVR Car Club gathering always makes the annual pilgrimage to Le Mans in France every June for the '24 Heures du Mans'.
We aim to cater for the family by arranging informal social gatherings in pleasant surroundings. We organise a series of single and multi-model events around the country such as Big Northern Gathering (North East/West), Wedge Fest and Griff Growl (both Stratford upon Avon) and Gang on the Green (Wells) to name but a few and have regular visits to Blackpool to the historical home of TVR.
In recent years, following the sad closure of the Bristol Avenue factory in 2006, the guided tours of TVR Engineering Ltd are no longer available but we still visit the former factory site where there are now a wide range of TVR specialist companies, many owned and run by former TVR employees. We always aim where possible for a large TVR parade along the promenade which in 2010 was undertaken under the lights of the illuminations. Any suggestion that we stole the show from Robbie Williams who turned them on...are probably true!
We assist members with proving provenance of older cars and proactively help the national motoring press with finding TVRs for magazine coverage. The vast majority of TVRs that are featured in articles in the motoring media are owned by Club members and are sourced through the TVRCC.
We have a Club Office based in Shropshire that is open during normal working hours to offer advice on any aspect of TVR ownership. And of course, members receive the monthly magazine, TVR Sprint. For anyone thinking of buying a TVR, this is the magazine to read. Packed full of articles about all things to do with TVR, it also brings you access to over 100 used TVRs every month. These are likely to be the finest cars you will find as they will have been lovingly and enthusiastically maintained by our members.
Finally membership gives you access to the Members Only area of this website where you can find out much more about each model type, gain access to our Helpliners, members who have extensive TVR experience and who have volunteered to offer technical advice. There is a Discussion Forum where you can seek the views of current owners before you take the plunge and buy your first TVR. Unlike other forums, you can guarantee that you are sure of a warm welcome no matter what your TVR interest is.
