Right who’s up for some of these nice roads then ;)







As the title suggests there will be two separate runs happening over the weekend so you can choose to do either or both if you fancy making a weekend of it.

We are currently trying to arrange some deals on overnight accommodation for the Saturday Night – and we have identified a hotel and a campsite in close proximity to the start point of the South Wales Run (details to be released shortly)

If you are interested in attending please state in your RSVP whether you’re doing the North Wales or South Wales Run or Both – if you are planning to do both please indicate if you will require accommodation on the Saturday evening and whether you would like to camp or stay in the hotel so we can get an idea of numbers.

E.g. North, South, Both – No Accomodation, Both – Hotel or Both – Camping,

-----------------------------------------------------------

The Run Details

The North Wales Run II is on Saturday 11th October

Start Point is the Holiday Inn Chester West - meet at 10.00am for 10.30am Start

a tractor is still a tractor............:p

il give you a run for your money on the twisties. not saying il leave you behind but youd be surprised, as il more than likely be shocked and ashamed at how punchy oil burners are in mid range

Jon, or any of the 'insiders', is the first day a re-run of the 8/8/08 evo run? if so i already have that in the sat nav so will just need the south itin. no rush tho i suppose :thumbs:

The North Wales is the same but I've added a couple of stop points, one to help us regroup at that truck stop by the petrol station where we stopped last time, we got broken up before there last time when we went through LLangollen, and then one to stop in bala by the lake.

I'll be posting them up shortly ;)
