    Thanks for everyone for turning up today:thumbsup: Hope you all enjoyed it, Weather picked up in the afternoon, plenty of top down motoring, thirteen cars in total:scorecard:, not sure what happened to the group from Bala to Oswestry on the homeward leg, , One minute behind us next minute only me and Billz, waited for the group but no sign of them! Hope everything is OK.

    Had a bit of an incident in Bala, that I am embarrassed about:shy:, I am sure someone will be along to share all of the details soon :meh:

    What a day, thanks to the organisers. It had everything, near misses, fights, driving on slicks in heavy rain.

    Great driving skills demonstrated by many especially Taff and JR. How JR took those corners in an automatic I dont know. Tip of the day though, don't put semi slicks on when doing 135 in the rain into a corner. Its not good for the bowels.
