Bright morning with blue skies, looking forward to another great days driving. Photo is blurred due to condensation from the shower!

Midnight browsing is just dedication :)
Or desperation as my misses calls it. :/

Weather looking good Chris - hope you all have a good days drive back and hopefully I'll make Mid Wales trip #6.
Away on family holiday tomorrow so couldn't get a pass this year.

A great weekend organised by James and attended by a great group of people. Many thanks to Sagarh for taking the lead on both days as I know that driving single track roads can be a bit stressful.

I will let the following photos tell the story of our weekend from the clean car at the beginning to the filthy one at the end.

Got just over 1000 photos from the weekend so might take a while to pick out the bests. However I can say that it was a fantastic weekend as the last two were and as always, I'm looking forward to the next one, hopefully James will be fit as a fiddle by that time! =D>

I would just like to say thanks to you all for coming along for another great weekend :) Good to see the usual suspects and a some new faces! :D

A couple of questionable roads this morning since I was not able to test drive them but apart from that (And the weather!) i think it went okay!!

Also, A massive thanks to Sagar for transporting me around and leading the run too :salut: was great to be able to tag along even if I wasnt able to drive this year!

Heres to the next one! :mrgreen:

Been looking through the videos and there is a log of follow the convoy footage. I will try to work out how to edit some snippets as there are some noisy pull aways, usually Adam, and some spectacular views too unsurprisingly!

A few pics...

Cheers to all for a good weekend. The drive back home on Sunday was better with the sun shining! We took the elan valley route back and it was quite scenic.
