    Following on from here (http://www.cliosport.net/threads/north-west-cs-areas-day-2nd-april.791288/page-2#post-11075233) I thought I'd start a proper event for it.

    We'll be meeting at the sandstone pub at 10am for a coffee, a crack on and a few pictures before setting off for the Welsh lap.

    The plan is to meet here before shooting off via the horseshoe pass, the evo triangle, lake vermwy, llanberis and the costal tunnels before parting ways.

    There'll be plenty of opportunities for photo stops so any budding photographers are encouraged to bring along their cameras :smiley: @Carbonraider is bringing his drone out to play too so fingers crossed for good weather for some artsy fartsy aerial videos.

    Planned stops for snacks and a drink are the ponderosa (mmmm greasy sausage rolls), a nice pub at betws-y-coed and a nice little cafe not far from the coast past snowdonia.

    Looking forward to seeing you all there :smiley:

    I'm up for this, however I'm having balljoint issues with the 200 so I don't really fancy risking a spirited drive in all honesty! Seems like a perfect run aswell :sob:

    How bad is it? Should be fine unless it is knocking horrifically?

    An awful amount of creaking, it's a weird one as birchdown said there's no play in it at all so it's suspected ball joint and top mount! Might just dw40 the hell out of it..

    Looking forward to this. Also bringing WD40 for a newly developed suspected gearbox mount knock. What doesn't kill it will make it... return on an AA truck.

    Here's a few of my pics, that said I didn't get many.

    Cheers to everyone who made it out today and had a cracking time in spite of the awful weather. Sod's law that it got better when we left.

    I think thirteen of us in total came out in a decent range of cars. The Meg 265 sounded brilliant. Dat boost!

    image.jpeg
    The lads who made it from Wigan in the r26, type r, 350z and (not pictured) the odyssey blue 172 on orange alloys.

    image.jpeg
    And Johns new Mini Cooper, forgot your username sorry, it sounded pretty ace and went very well

    image.jpeg

    This was pretty funny sorry, after we got split up leaving the evo triangle, we arrived at the pub in betws-y-coed in two groups... The second lot got the wrong entrance which was blocked and caused a decent tail back turning round haha

    image.jpeg

    Trying to get @172Oz to upload his pics and @Carbonraider to send some drone footage. It looked pretty epic as he was recording it.

    @HarrySmith94 caught us up at the pub too. Sorry I had s**t signal and couldn't get in touch sooner. Hope you enjoyed the final stretch :smiley: and the drive to us lol

    image.jpeg

    Cheers again and I can't wait for the next one, the weather should be better :smiley:
