8th March 2005


The TR3OC's Beezumph Rally

The date has been set for the Triple Club's 2005 Beezumph Rally. Will you let your classic loose at Cadwell this summer?

It's official: Beezumph 14 will take place on Friday and Saturday, 22nd and 23rd July 2005 at Cadwell Park in England's Lincolnshire. Over the years, the Trident and Rocket Three Owners' Club Beezumph Rally has become a major fixture on the classic motorcycle calendar, attracting literally hundreds of Tridents and Rocket 3s. It's the TR3OC's flagship event but, as always, the club takes pains to say that ALL motorcycle enthusiasts are welcome to come and take part in this compelling combo of track day, club rally, marque celebration and all-round superior shindig.

The bike Meriden should have built?

This year, Beezumph is themed around the 30th anniversary of the T160 Trident and the derivatives of that model. In addition to the normally impressive numbers of T160s, there will be many of Les Williams' Legends on site, plus Slippery Sam Replicas - including the original Earls Court model - and the famous Son of Sam.

As in past years, the Beezumph Rally revolves around the track sessions which provide a superb opportunity for classic bike riders to exercise their old bikes around the full circuit of Cadwell Park. While many come to ride, others prefer to watch. With a wide range of decent machinery taking part, there is always something new to see. And the action doesn't only happen on the track…

On the Friday evening, there will be a triples-oriented autojumble in the main marquee, where members are encouraged to bring items for sale. There will be TR3OC memorabilia and merchandise on sale and TR3OC Dating Officer Steve Rothera will hold a 'Dating Clinic' for those seeking dating info on their Triple.

Meanwhile, the guests and rally-goers will be mingling, and as usual Beezumph boasts a guest list of impressive dimensions. It includes Les Williams, Dave Croxford, Percy Tait, Tommy Robb, Ron Chandler, Jack Shemans, Arthur Jakeman, Steve Brown, Frank Perris, Ron Barrett, Fred Swift, Bill Fannon, Martin Russell, to name but a few. Add to this the Beezumph contingent of literally hundreds of BSA and Triumph Triples of all models, ex-factory F750 machines through to the totally standard T160s, plus of course many, many, other fine British, European and Buell, XR1000 and XR750 Harleys.

It's not all Triples, and it's not all seventies stuff...

There will again be a plethora of ex-factory Nortons attending, including the Peter Williams #001 1973 Monocoque Norton, and 1972 JPN Norton, plus at least one ex-factory Rotary - JPS RCW588 1989, the 1971 BSA Hailwood F750 machine, Steve Brown's prototype Mk3 Rob North BSA, the SOHC BSA Rocket 3 prototype, the Club's Trident P1 prototype. And the list goes on and on...

Plenty of bikes to bend over and stare at...

There are three categories of Friday track sessions - Classic, Intermediate, and Expert - open to any British, European, Buell or Harley XR750/XR1000 or KR machine, PLUS Beezumph's 'Entry Level' class: two 15-minute marshal-controlled sessions for those who have never ridden in a track day before or took part in the Entry Level sessions last year, or have just been away from the track too long.

There are four categories on Saturday, purely for pre-1984 British machines: Touring, Fast Touring, Quick, and Race. All track sessions use the full circuit.

...including this Bolide, last year.

After the Saturday track sessions are over, all the machines on site are invited to line up in front of the marquee for prize giving. This is followed by the now-famous Beezumph BBQ, and then the bar and band continue the entertainment until late.

It's worth noting that the Track Ride tickets, and Rally Tickets (which include Badge and BBQ) are pre-book only. Track tickets sell out very fast, so don't hang around if you'd like to book and ride.
