A ST ANDREWS University student’s obsession with standards has netted two special prizes.
Zoology undergraduate Gillian Carmoodie, from Glenrothes, won two firsts at the Glamis Motor Extravaganza last weekend.
Around 2000 vehicles and exhibits showcased 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 26-year-old Gillian’s 1957 Standard 8 named ‘Henry,’ which she uses to commute daily from home to St Andrews.
During the Glamis weekend she won first in class (1956 - 1966) for the Navigational Regularity Rally and first overall in the Period Dress and Drive Competition.
