    They've resurfaced the carpark at Burger King :smile: Worst case there's a garage next door where I'm sure a few folks could park if it's absolutely necessary.

    Probably a long shot because I know you'll all be having fun, will this thread be updated on locations?

    I may be back early afternoon, so could pop along then if your on your way back.

    Sorry had to go a bit early and I didn't get to say cheers for organizing the meet. The Mrs is happy with the blender I won. Lol

    Was a great day and drove a load of roads I've never been on before.
    Big turn out and everyone seemed real laid back and friendly. Was hardly worth cleaning the car this morning. Lol=
    [​IMG]
    Took a bunch of in car videos and a few snaps here and there. Gave the car a good blast all the way home too! Some great roads. Will upload some pics n videos through the week. But here's a few from the initial meet. As you can see, was a big turn out. Enjoy.

    Cheers for a great day lads, big thanks to @dajones for organising the day and sorting out the raffle prizes. Fair play to those who traveled from london/Essex/leeds/Manchester etc, hope you enjoyed the roads. Just a quick couple of pics from me.

    Random man of the meet had to be this guy and his 172

    Top day lads, top f*cking day!
    @dajones fair play mucka, thanks for organising an absolute blinder of a Sunday drive!

    Great to see plenty of old faces but awesome to meet all the new lads and motors.

    I've got plenty of footage that I'll get around to editing eventually (awaiting new computer...currently only on iPhone!) but having a watch on the playback screen...it's safe to say everyone gets a bit of action.

    I'll also have HD stills availble for anyone who wants them. Just PM me your reg and we'll get it sorted!

    For now...sleep!
    Nice one guys!

    Looks like a great turnout (who brought the articulated tanker??!), and it sounds like a cracking time was had by all.

    Well done to the organisers and fund-raisers, great effort.

    Looking forward to seeing the footage in due course.

    Filters Was definitely the hooligan of the day :cool:

    I'd agree. That clios superb!


    Yeah. It was a great day, we did get held up now n then which slowed the flow down. But was a great blast.

    I didn't take many photos I'm afraid but this was a great day out.
    I always enjoy the Welsh days out, lots of interesting folks always come along.
    I don't live far from these places and like to go up there on my days off anyway so if anyone fancies the odd impromptu meet then give me a shout :smile:

    Was my first time in Elan Valley, didn't know whether to tank it on the brilliant roads or take it slow for the scenery!!! Hopefully I got it just right!!

    Lol. I was an elan virgin too. Its a stunning place! I was very surprised.
    The pace was spot on apart from that b*****d Audi driver. Lol
    Yeah. I went just after you, could have driven back down together. (:

    I worked out how long it'd take to finish the route and it'd be late for me getting home, so I left about 10 mins after you did.

    Sadly my traffic blocking skills failed me with that Audi, sorry lads! I did try......That block on the √Član route though

    @dajones I wouldn't worry about your pace mate! 'Twas a spot on day.

    Needs repeating.
