The Regent Street Motor Show, in London, is a free to enter event along the whole of Regent Street from Piccadilly to Oxford Circus. This year it is taking place on the 4th November and Triumph will again be there with its display truck and a range of current models to look at. The show opens at 10:30am and closes at 4:00pm.
Visitors to the Triumph stand at the 2016 Regent Street Motor Show were treated to its eagerly-awaited Bonneville modern classics family, as well as key models from across its range of urban roadster, adventure / tourer and cruiser ranges. In the past year alone, the UK manufacturer has launched 14 new models in the UK, demonstrating its confidence in the resurgence of motorcycling.
Taking centre stage along Regent Street are one hundred veteran cars taking part in the International Concours d’Elegance. With many of the drivers and passengers also dressing in period costume it’s a photographer’s delight. Several one-make car clubs take part – one such last year was the Jaguar Drivers Club, which displayed Jaguar sports cars through the years from the XK140 and E-type to the rare XJ220 and the current F-type. Another highlight in 2016 was James Hunt’s McLaren M23 F1 car, displayed on the 40th anniversary of his championship year by Hunt’s son Freddie.
And there will be masses more besides with motorcycle displays, a stunt motorcycle team, dance troupes and simulator drives.
