WINTON 20-21 AUGUST – A FAMILY WEEKEND OF MOTORSPORT – Bill Revill
Remember the weekend of 20- 21 August – an excellent day for an all-Triumph celebration! Bring the family!
Motorkhana – Saturday 20th August
Saturday is a special day – TSOA has hired the skid pan at Winton for some Motorkhana style fun and for driver training. Anyone can have a go, but we are targeting young people, both males and females, to come out and learn how to handle a car. It’s for 12-year old’s up – do you have any kids or grandchildren? Would they like to have a try? Will you or your partner join them? It’s a great way for family fun together. Any car is suitable, and everyone can have a go.
“Nobody ever forgets their first day of motorsport. If you want the kids to remember you, take them out to this weekend”.
All Triumph Challenge – Sunday 21st August
Sunday is on the Winton circuit – the All Triumph Challenge (ATC), an event bringing Triumphs together, both local and interstate.
An MSCA round – There is something for everybody all day – a non-stop day of on-track action, LOTS of Triumphs and other classics to drool over. Entry is free and everyone can walk amongst the cars, chat with the drivers and we’ll have some escorted track laps at lunchtime (and lunch is supplied). The ATC is a great sight – a full field or Triumphs of every year and model, all competing with a chance to win, it’s not just the fastest car.
Come up for a day or the weekend!
This is always a magic weekend – the events are terrific, the collection of cars to see are amazing and we have a gala dinner arranged for Saturday Night with local and interstate Triumph enthusiasts coming from NSW And South Australia. Accommodation is available and can be checked on our Accommodation Ticker (motel list available).
Those who do not wish to spend the day at the track have plenty to do. The Benalla area is full of great restaurants, wineries and scenic drives. Perhaps the best is the Silo Art Trails, with giant murals looking stunning on the local grain silos. The local visitor Information service (Enjoybenalla.com.au) will be available to help you plan your trip.
COME ON UP TO WINTON! BOOK YOUR ACCOMMODATION! LET MICHAEL KIP KNOW YOU’RE COMING! ENTER A YOUNG PERSON FOR DRIVER TRAINING! PLAN TO TOUR THE REGION ON THE MONDAY AND SEE THE SILOS! ENJOY A DRIVE IN YOUR TRIUMPH WITH OTHER TSOA FOLKS AND SPEND THE DAY WITH FRIENDS! CELEBRATE THE 60 TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE SPITFIRE – LET’S SEE AS MANY AS WE CAN!

What is it and how does it work?
Booking accommodation is often a stumbling block to a weekend away. People don’t know where to go, everyone goes to different places or forgets to book and can’t come. This ‘ticker’ is to encourage people to book in and do it in time. The motels have been taken from the Winton Raceway website, so we are supporting the track by using these suppliers.
I rang all of these places and checked how many rooms they have now for Friday 19th and Saturday 20th August as of today and the result is below.
|Vacancies as at July 5
|AVONDALE MOTOR INN
|$135 – $225
|$145 – $165

Everybody can enjoy motorsport!
Bill Revill has bought a pretty standard Toyota – a ‘nugget’ – for competition and invites all of his family to use it. So far, his brother, his daughter, her partner and two of his nieces have run at ‘Come and Try’ days at Sandown and Philip Island as well as events at the Bryant Park Hillclimb. “We all enjoy motorsport now and the kids have a ball”, says Bill. “It’s great to see the family together and I’m sure they will continue to be future competitors”.
