Yeovil is a perennial event for the Standard Club. It covers two days. This year the club's stand was next to the main arena so we had a good view of all the parades on both days. There is a virtually non stop display of cars, commercials, military vehicles, motorbikes and the like. Lots of visitors to the stand of course, many of them commenting on the fact that ours was one of the most varied there, with no two identical cars and models representing nearly a 40 year period of factory production.
