STANDARD INTERNATIONAL RALLY UPDATE



Many thanks to those club members who have entered the International Rally to date. This year we are in the Cotswolds, over the Summer Solstice weekend, 19,20,21 June 2015 based at Cheltenham Chase Hotel near Gloucester. The rally promises to be a great event. If you have mislaid the entry form which came with your magazine in December then you can enter through the Webshop here, or download and print a form from this link.


Over the weekend we have arranged a great range of attractions and visits as well as the usual Concours on the Sunday.

Two new options which were not published on the entry form are a visit the Jet Age Museum at Staverton (free entry)on the Saturday and an option to visit Gloucester Quays by coach on the Sunday morning. There is fantastic shopping there, the Historic Docks and other attractions. This will appeal to those of you who wish to escape the car rally for a while! Thank you, Betty Parkes for volunteering to organise this.


If you have not been to a Standard international Rally before you will find it to be a friendly, non-competitive event. (Even though we do have prizes!)


It really is a great chance to meet new friends, catch up with people you meet a few times a year, swap tips, get advice and compare notes about our vehicles. You’ll travel through the rolling Cotswold hills on our road runs, a route book is provided. There’s a range of optional visits including to Toddington Narrow Gauge Railway, Adam Henson’s Farm, Jet Age Museum or the chance to just explore the area yourself. We’ll have a club Bring and Buy stall too for members to sell spare parts.  Please bring your items for sale.


Volunteers to help are welcomed, it’s a great way to get involved and really feel part of the event, so please email me secretary@standardmotorclub.org.uk or phone 01727 868405 if you would like to step forward! We need more help with marshalling, laying out the field setting off cars on road runs or just being a willing pair of hands for an hour or so.
