Home to the Duke of Devonshire, Chatsworth house once again played host to the regional TVR meet for 2010.
As in previous years much anticipation surrounded the expected and final number in attendance and by lunch time the number had already exceeded six hundred, well on the way to last years total of 676.
Despite a wet start we enjoyed the drive up in to Derbyshire in the Carizma Chimaera which, as it’s first outing of the year, ran superbly.
By mid morning the damp start gave way to sunshine and the tranquillity of the Chatsworth lawn rumbled with the distinctive tone.
It was again fantastic to see so many beautiful examples of the marque on display. Many thanks to the TVR club organisers and the Cavendish family for an excellent outing at a fantastic venue.
Chatsworth house and gardens are open daily all year (except Christmas) for more info visit www.chatsworth.org
Just got back from the annual TVR Club gathering at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire – a great day with an excellent turn out of cars…292 was the final count we hear!
We took the Chimeara and a beautiful Griffith belonging to James Agger which was for sale. The roofs were down all the way and it was a really good drive…abount an hour from where we are. It was nice to end up in convoy with a bunch of other TVRs as we made our way up the M1 and through Chesterfield.
For those of you who didn’t go, there was a really good mix ture of cars ranging from Tasmins and S3’s right up to a handful of Sagaris’. We even saw some cars painted in colours we hadn’t seen on TVRs before.
All in all it was good to see such a large number of TVRs in one place, all parked together. It was also good to meet new people from other clubs who had travelled a lot further than us.
Well done to the organisers and we are both looking forward to next year!
