Around 40 classic Triumph cars from Victoria and the ACT arrive in Wagga just after midday for show, and charity

Wagga will step back to the 1970s today when a fleet of 40 English Triumph sports cars cruise through the city’s streets.

A joint effort by Victoria and the ACT’s Triumph car clubs will see the fleet meet at uranquinty for an early lunch before arriving in Wagga after midday.

The cars will gather at the Playhouse car park at 12.20pm before taking Leisure Company members for a joyride.

The public is invited to view the cars which will be parked in the Playhouse carpark on the corner of Tarcutta and Cross Streets.

Originating in England, the Triumph excelled itself on the race track and was valued for its sporty style, with rally drivers favouring the Saloon.

Actor Paul Newman got his start in motor racing driving a TR6.

The Triumph Stag was chosen to transport the jockeys, trainers and emirates girls down Swanson Street Melbourne for the Melbourne Cup parade in 2015 and 2016. The Stag has been chosen again for the 2017 parade.

The cars are on their way to their 12th Annual five-day rally at Cootamundra.

The English classics will be on show before departing for Cootamundra at 2.30pm.
