Beezumph Is Back!

The TR3OC’s fabulous weekend festival returns to Cadwell Park for summer 2022…

Along with so many other excellent events, the triple-tastic track-based Beezumph rally fell by the wayside in 2020 and 2021 – but now it’s back at Cadwell Park in July. This year’s event, organised as ever by the Trident and Rocket 3 Owners’ Club, will showcase some of the extra-special three-cylinder prototypes which were created during the 1960s and 70s.

The original triple prototype, P1, is normally on display at Triumph’s visitor experience at Hinckley. It’ll appear at Beezumph 29, alongside other significant experimental machines – like the very last of the pushrod-engined triples, the T180 which was intended to replaced the 750 T160. The TR3OC purchased this landmark machine from the London Motorcycle Museum when it closed its doors from the final time. The club is currently building a ‘neverwozzer’ based around the pre-production prototype of this bored and stroked 900, and you’ll be able to see how they’re getting on at B29.

The action-packed weekend also features the film premier of the club’s efforts to document the behind the scenes efforts of the original BSA and Triumph factory employees. They’ve recorded hours of interviews with the men who made the actual motorcycles, and the racers who rode the triples on track. The film will be screened at B29 – and many of its contributors will also appear in person.

Of course, the main action will take place on Cadwell’s circuit, with separate sessions to accommodate differing levels of expertise and machinery. Any pre-1985 machine can take part in the track sessions and there’s an ‘entry level’ class on the Friday – giving riders the chance to take to Cadwell’s track for two 15 minutes sessions, fully marshalled, on any solo motorcycle for £30.

The rally also includes a ride-out on the Friday to the coast, static bike displays, trophies, a bring-and-buy sale for triple spares, raffle, live music, guest speaker Norman Hyde, refreshments and a bar. Awards will be presented to the best examples of the T150, T160, R3 and X-75; Racing Triple, Triple-Engined Special, Non-Triple and for the longest distance travelled to the events.
