Lakeland Motor Museum gears up for TVR celebration

IF YOU like your motors noisy and nostalgic then a Bank Holiday motoring celebration in Cumbria could be just your thing.

The TVR Car Club is marking the anniversary of two of Blackpool's best known sports cars - the TVR M Series of the 1970s, and the wedge-shaped 350i of the Eighties - by holding a special event at the Lakeland Motor Museum on May 6, where they're encouraging petrolheads to check out dozens of TVRs from across the north of England.

Event organiser and TVR Car Club member John Bailie said: "This is a unique opportunity for visitors to the museum to see these magnificent motor cars in a fantastic setting on the edge of the Lake District and to meet some interesting personalities who made the Blackpool company such a success during the 1970s, one of the most significant periods in the firm's history".

A line-up of dozens of these models, from the Cumbria, Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cheshire TVR Car Club regions will be on display all day in a dedicated area alongside the museum, which is home to the oldest surviving TVR.

In addition to M-series and 350i, star cars on display will include a full race TVR Tuscan in Gulf Racing colours, a TVR Tasmin with 750bhp NASCAR spec engine and TVR Sagaris, one of the most recent models produced by the Blackpool factory before it closed a few years ago.

The event will take place at the museum's base in Newby Bridge, near Windermere, on Sunday, May 6. For more information, visit the TVR Car Club website.
