Standard International Rally Report


Report on Sunday's events at the 47th Standard International Rally


General shot of the Rally Field on Sunday morning




After Saturday's hot and Sunny events, there was the forecast downpour over the Saturday night. Fortunately, the weather cleared as we returned to the site from our hotel  and continued to brighten up throughout the Sunday, although it was rather windy. Cars were arriving from all quarters as Lynda and I parked up the 12 and leathered off the rainwater.


The rally field was just next to the Tank Museum, which is a fantastic display. All rally entrants were able to enter the Museum as part of their rally entry fee, entrants also being presented with a brass rally plaque and a programme containing details of all the cars entered.


Here are shots of some of the cars that turned up. Click on any of these thumbprints to see a larger version

Whilst all Standards are welcomed, regardless of their condition or roadworthiness there is also a concours, where all entrants in a particular class are asked to pick the three best cars in their own class, ignoring their own. By that method we come to the publics choice of the best three cars in each class.
