Might aswell pop into Wales...



  200 Gordini
After turning up at birchdown late and being turned away i didnt fancy just heading back on the 100 mile drive home... figured i wasnt too far from Wales so the Evo triangle (and the surrounding roads) had a little visit.

I havent been since the big RS meet a while back. I didnt really get alot of pictures as i was having too much fun on the amazing roads around North Wales.

Pictures took on the iPhone so not too great.

I have been waiting for this...... You weren't just a bit late, you were booked in for 9AM and showed up at 12.10 for a cambelt kit and aux belt kit, after us trying to contact you and no answering / not returning calls.

Unfortunately we are unable to sit around twiddling our thumbs all day so had to call other customer's and arrange work for after lunch, hence turning you away.

When it got to being 3 hours late with no contact it was assumed you were not coming.

Apologies for your bad experience, but in our opinion you only have yourself to blame!

Hope you enjoyed wales!:approve:

Some good pics there - they roads look awesome!

I think i did....




I also said in an email when i booked (3 weeks before) i would not be there at 9am

I think the point Steve is making is that you said in your first post that you were turned away for being late - you didn't state the timescale.

I hope you sort things out as its defo worth the trip to Birchdown.

Curley did you do the ace road out of Bala? proper epic road.
 
It's a shame that the Sportsmans Arms is now closed.

Which road out of Bala you on about Rolo? You have a road name?

They couldnt fit me in for over 3 weeks so i'll keep it local and go to Fred.

I did a little part of that.. i wish i knew it was a good road and i would of carried on, tbh i was just driving and had no idea where i was. I was looking for some roads we done on that meet but i hadnt got a clue lol

Least it wasn't wet too actually.

Pretty nice day really, the sun was coming in and out.

Good stuff mate, I want to go back real bad! lol

Its not as good without another 30 Renault Sports to have a play with.

It looks like the tree was sanded instead of carved TBQFH

I got my chainsaw out the glove box, only took 3 hour.

Cant believe the ammount of people that do this trip and dont go from bala over hyrnant pass to lake vyrnwy.Highest road in england and wales...

On the map,just below balloon b is another road.This is the road to the top of bulch-y-groes,the highest in england and wales.My bad...The one shown is still an awsome drive though,and if you use bala you can link the two up and make it a circular.

Good images here and links on the left to bala lake and vyrnwy
