Student’s high Standard

Gillian Carmoodie from Glenrothes won two first prizes at the weekend up at the Glamis Motor Extravaganza. There were around 2000 vehicles and exhibits showcasing road transport from the late 1800's right through to modern day. From Push bikes and Traction Engines to Army Trucks and Supercars there was a huge variety of historic vehicles on display. All of the exhibits were fully functioning and most of the vehicles were actually driven to the event including Gillian's. During the weekend she won 1st in class (1956 - 1966) for the Navigational Regularity Rally and 1st Overall in the Period Dress and Drive Competition. Gillian is 26 and was driving her 1957 Standard 8 named 'Henry' in the events. She uses the car daily to commute to University in St Andrews where she studies Zoology.
