Myself and @Tree200 are no longer able to make this I'm afraid.

Have a good time chaps and watch the roads!

Cheers for the heads up Lawro.

wow I was a bit gutted about the mountain road but see why now... so this will be my first meet, do I just turn up and follow everyone? lol

Had to be done sorry mucka, It's not worth risking another accident.

Just turn up, meet people, make new friends and drive some new roads. There's a few stop off points along the way for grub/photo's and those that have them to set up/fiddle around with their GoPros in between sections.

Two camera cars for the day then...i'll be dragging my driftHD along.
Any chance i'd be able to pinch the meet footage from you afterwards fella? I'll make a mass edit then and chuck it up online.


V nice. Good Mrs!

I'd like to try a go pro myself. May get one as a present for myself :p

Start off with a Drift if I were you chap, there's not much difference in them except for the price (and with drift you get more goodies to start with)

Yeh no worries! I can't say it will be great footage as I'm not used to it yet! Hopefully have some practice before the weekend, I don't have an official rated suction mount yet so it will be mounted in car to be safe with it lol..

i have a cheapo 'dash cam' which I might set up facing out the back window also, if I can find a spare micro sd for it! It's not greatest quality but it was super cheap and does work haha

ill also be bringing my dslr to take some photos with along the stop points! Just point and click stuff to remember the day and write up about :)

Mounting outside just means you get a hell of a lot of wind noise more than anything mucka, always best to mount the cameras in car on a meet....if it falls off it generally gets crushed! (I found that out the hard way a few years back!)

Does look as though it'll be raining on and off in the morning though should brighten up a bit in the afternoon.
Sadly can't be avoided....but if anything it's a good thing as it'll keep every ones speed down.

I haven't estimated a time to be honest chap.
I'd say 5-6pm....possibly later if we're having to much fun to head home.

See how the day pans out really.

Sorry mate just realised that was a f**king terrible question!lol. I will be heading back after point B as need to be home late afternoon. Looking forward to it! Cheers, Steff.

You should be able to make it up to Builth-Wells with us chap...i'd estimate we'd be there by 2pm - 2:30pm at a push.
Looking forward to seeing this trophy of yours!

I will be doing the whole route mate, just been trying to figure out the best way to get back west on the way home rather than going back to Newport and then down the M4. The best route seems to be A470 or A438 at Abergavenny but my head hurts now.lol.

The Trophy needs a fair bit of work doing mate but not in the financial situation to do it atm. Bit embarrassed about it tbh but I thought f**k it I'm not missing out on some fun due to not having a mint car. I will get things sorted when I can. Looking forward to meeting you and everyone else! Hopefully we get some luck with the weather! Fingers crossed!

Hi guys
is there a mob number I could have, I got a 130 mile drive down
Just incase I can't find you guys cheers
 
Im gonna have to miss this meet unfortunately. By the time I'd seen your reply coops I'd already thought I'd missed my chance and gone out shopping with the wife. :(
I'd really like to go out for a drive with the club. If anyone would fancy it we could do a meet in 2 or 3 weeks time. Even if it's a mini meet with less cars and shorter drive it don't matter. :p

Hope your all having good time and weather ain't hampering day too much.
