Standard-Triumph Day Report


Club Member wins a prize at the 2005 Standard-Triumph Day!


Reg Johnson receives his prize from Peter James with Graham Robson and Steve Redway, commentators, in the backgound.




The Club always puts on a large display of cars at this event on the late May Bank Holiday Sunday.  Though we managed to turn out 25 or so cars we are of course as usual outnumnbered by the huge turnout of Triumphs. The event was considerably larger this year due to it's inclusion in a Best of British Festival that attracted a large number of additional exhibits.


The photos show just some of the Standards present on the day As usual, if you click on any thumbnail, you will see a larger version, them click "back" to come back here.

Mike Wilks bought along this partly restored Standard 8





OK. so there were also a few Triumphs there!





The overall winner was this TR6




At the end of the afternoon, eight cars were chosen as finalists in the concours display and two of them this year were Standards. John Maxwell's Flying 9 was joined in the display area by Reg Johnson's Vanguard III. From these 8 cars, 2 finalists were chosen - The Vanguard was selected as runner-up against the overall winner, a blue TR6. Reg's car is an immaculate restoration and well worthy of the prize. The judges can't yet persuade themselves to choose a Standard over a Triumph but with persistence maybe our day will come? Well done Reg!
