The National Motorcycle Museum & Triumph had a huge joint presence at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed with our taking part in various high profile activities both on and off the track.
As part of the Museum & Triumph’s “Past & Present” feature, Carl Fogarty MBE returned to the Festival of Speed for the first time in eight years to ride Triumph machines both old and new whilst taking part in the famous Goodwood hill climb. Foggy rode two of the British marque’s current bikes, the Speed Triple and the Thruxton R as well as two of their famous forebears supplied by the National Motorcycle Museum.
These museum bikes included the Triumph Thruxton Bonneville that Malcolm Uphill took to victory in the Production TT and the 750cc Production TT winning Triumph Trident, known as ‘Slippery Sam’.
While not in use on the hill, the bikes made for an impressive sight in the paddock as part of a fantastic Triumph/Museum pit garage display.
