It's been a long time coming but JonSpiderMan and myself are finally setting about hosting another legendary weekend tour of the greatest country on earth :)

To be held on the weekend of Saturday May 28th and Sunday May 29th. Routes and hopefully satnav itinerary files are being worked on and will be published when finalised but we will stick to the usual landmarks throughout the weekend. Saturday will see the tour take in the North of the country while Sunday will be held in the south. You can look forward to the routes including the A55 tunnels, the Evo triangle and other passes in the north, while the south is likely to include the Black Mountains as featured in many episodes of car related shows.

We hope the chosen dates are suitable for as many people as possible, we looked long and hard at possible date clashes with other events and found nothing, the weekend seems to be free so drag yourself, your t'other half and don't forget your wheels*

Saturday route as per link below, this is subject to subtle changes but gives a good guideline to begin with

Hotel details for Friday night if required as this will be the start point for Saturday morning

We will be providing ITN files for those, who have TomTom's with the route preprogrammed, also if you have two way PMR Radio's

Very interested. I can't see anything in my 'car' dates calendar that would take preference over this.
Will confirm soon. I assume it includes a stop over somewhere on the Saturday night.

Hi,

I'd be interested in something like this if possible.

What are your plans for saturday night? Hotel/camping/etc? :)

Hotels will be linked soon once routes and itineraries are finalised. More than likely will be starting from the Holiday Inn, Chester West on the A55, should you wish to stay there on the Friday night. Saturday night on previous events has been spent at the Holiday Inn Express in Newport, not far from the M4. This is likely to be the same this year but will confirm as soon as the southern route for Sunday is done as we are looking at mixing it up and starting elsewhere for a change

You're more than welcome to join us, keep your eye in here for updates :)

I'm up for it - just waiting for a date on another event for the classic landy to check it isnt the same weekend.

Also assuming the alfa is still going... just had it back from the garage I bought it from - had it 2 days and the exhaust fell off lol.

It isn't until now that I realise what I've done. :mope:



Which is ironic, because I'd probably not make it anyway. :paperbag:
Hasn't it ventured as far as Wales already? Go on.

I want to go. I hope I can convert that to "we".
