The Triumph Sports Owners Association (TSOA) was founded in England in 1953 to support and encourage owners of the TR2.
A branch was formed in the USA in 1954 and since then branches have been formed in many other countries. Over time many of these groups have evolved and moved in different directions while others have closed.
In Australia, the Melbourne Branch, was started in 1960 by a handful of TR owners keen on motor sport and social gatherings and is now one of the oldest branches in the world that has operated continuously. Separate branches of the TSOA have since been formed in all Australian States. The TSOA Vic. has grown from this and now promotes the ownership of all the Triumph sporting models including TRs 2 to 8, Spitfires, GT6s and Stags. Owners of other Triumph models are of course, also welcome! Although the interests of the club are predominantly within Victoria there are a number of members in Tasmania. The club historian has produced some TR3 history in Australia.
