182 Trophy Welsh Weekender 2016 (pic heavy)

What an absolutely fantastic weekend that has been with respect to the Trophy Welsh Weekender 2016! A fantastic and friendly bunch of people, a collection of the finest hot-hatches ever made, glorious weather and stunning Welsh driving roads.

I'd like to extend my thanks to all those who attended (either for one day or the entire weekend) for helping ensure this year's event was as big a success as last year's weekender. It was great to see so many familiar faces as well as a bunch of new folks who were able join in the fun. I hope we can do it again sometime :)

A special thanks goes out to @Tim. for (once again) organising a truly enjoyable weekend with great routes that challenged both car and driver and offered some genuinely breathtaking views along the way. I would also like to personally thank Mr Al for allowing me to be his wing man this year. If it wasn't for this kind gentleman I would not have been able to make this year's weekender! :) Thanks buddy!

Here's a selection of my photos; many were taken on the road, through the windscreen, and may not be the best of quality as a result. Even so, I hope you can enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Cheers :)

Absolutely fantastic photos mate, every one is great!

Who is the bloke in the middle with the 46 number on his top at the bottom of the second lot of photos in the group pic? Has he got little man syndrome?

Fantastic pictures, looks like great fun.

Almost tempting to buy a trophy just to join you next year!
Thanks mate - you know it would make sense to buy a Trophy and join us... ;)

Thanks fella. You mean the guy with the Valentino Rossi #46? LOL! He's not got little man syndrome (nor is he a little man!) That's Al - an absolute gentleman, a good friend of mine and my driver for the weekend (whilst I still await the return of my own Trophy). I took more than a few pics of his car for his own album and as a way of thanks for allowing me to join him for the weekend :)

M13EOW is my old trophy.

Good to see its getting looked after.

Should never have sold it.
It is being enjoyed and looked after mate - no doubts about that! :)

LOL! It was taken as intended mate, cheers. :smile:

The scenery did us proud this year. I've been fortunate enough to enjoy these Welsh roads and countryside for 9 years plus now and they were as good this weekend as they've ever been. I can't wait to do it again.

Hear hear! I couldn't have said it any better myself mate. It was a real pleasure to meet you and your good lady. Hopefully catch you again soon!

I want a Trophy just to do this!

Incredible photos and love seeing so many all joined together!
Thanks mate. We got some mixed looks along the way... 99% favourable! Most people didn't really know what they were seeing but would stop and gawp as the convoy rolled past anyway. Then there were the knowing glances and nods of respect from those who did know and appreciate what the Trophy was/is about :)

Awesome pictures mate. Stunning scenery
Cheers mate :)

Looks like awesome weekend !
It was one of the highlights of my year to be fair - just what the doctor ordered!
 
Stunning photos! That's the best word for it......... looks a fantastic run and all those cars together in one place, I bet there was a few comments from people along the way saying in confusion "they're all the same colour!?" 😂

Living in Norfolk where everything is as flat as a pancake, that scenery is just amazing!

Thanks mate. There were a few bemused looks from people along the way but the reactions were generally positive!

I don't think you took enough photos Andy!

Some great shots there, looked a brilliant weekend!
I know, I'm so disappointed I didn't get more. Must try harder! :)

Cheers Keith. Likewise, it was great to be able to say 'hi' face-to-face! I still feel awful for forgetting your name though... after goodness knows how long I've been following you and your car thread I had a total brainfart and couldn't remember! I didn't really want to be referring to you as '185'...

Great pics as always, Andy! Never seen so many different shades of red :tongueout:
LOL! Cheers M! But let's get one thing straight... we're talking shades of pink here, not red. :car:

That's awesome, You lot must have got loads of attention!!
Very much so - especially when pulled up as a group or when all piled into a petrol station! :)

Cracking pictures, almost broke my computer trying to load them all!
Oops, sorry about that mate. I should have posted much less and simply provided the album link! 😊

That looked an awesome outing! Fair dos to you guys, great turnout!! Coming from Mid Wales I know exactly where all those pics were taken.....:smile: Those roads are the reason I've only ever bought cars that handle well.... s**t place to live for socialising and nights out but epic for your own ribbon of twisty tarmac where police presence is minimal... :smile::up:
