I think we could do with a route plan giving road numbers postcodes and Eta's which would help people who are not familiar with the area and also help if someone falls behind.
18 cars will be a handful and having a route planner to follow could be the difference between a good day and not so good day.
Do you have a definite route planned Drew as I think there are 2 alternatives in the posts I have seen, if so if you want to forward me it in detail happy to help produce something, if it's all in hand and your on to it, great I will shut up.😆

Excellent idea Simon.
When I supported the NC500 Drive i produced a spiral bound hard copy turn by turn road book which in conjunction with an accurate Google Maps link helped everyone find their way around as we had c12 cars one year.
Stopping for photo opportunities, viewing vistas etc; can be a challenge with so many cars.
But hey ho it all adds to the fun.

Sounds like yours were more like a co-pilot set of notes😆 not sure I could do that, but having an outline of the route would give people some reassurance that it's not game over if you can't get out at a junction and that you can catch up.
I am assuming it's easy on Google maps, but I am stupid.

I could do the Google maps detailing if you and Drew are ok with me doing that. I will PM them to you for checking as I don’t know the local details.
In the past I have found that without zooming in it’s possible to have some pointless loops in towns and village. A couple of years back we did a midnight run in the Cotswolds and finished up doing a nice little circumnavigation of a couple of houses in a village, 5 RX8s with throaty exhausts was not very pleasant occurrence for the homeowners I am sure!

Ok with me Chris, the exact itinerary is up to Drew, I have always been useless with road numbers and don't use them, even local ones, I could take you around blindfold but not by the road numbers, so it's over to Drew assuming he's not already prepared something. 👍
Some ETA times and postcodes of stops may also help,

Sundays stop at Blaenau Ffestiniog Hotel are offering the following, please can you let me have an idea of numbers for this please.

We could make some sandwiches as below, and a cake to go with the tea/coffee.

Povey’s of Chwilog Roast Ham, pickle & salad
Beef, rocket & horseradish
BLT
Tuna & cucumber
Snowdonia Cheese Rock Star & pickle

Happy to do the sandwich and cake at £5 per person, and tea/coffees paid for as they order.

Please give me an indication of numbers so I can pass them on.
Do we choice a type of sandwich or is this going to be mixed platters?

Nearly 4 hours I reckon including lunch.
Is there any interest in participant receiving a souvenir RoadBook? I produced them for the NC500 a few years back as I had surplus stationary back then but would need to buy new stuff to produce them this time.
They contain route maps, turn by turn route notes and have a clear cover and card back page.
If you are interested at £2 a pop simply like this post

We have had a Cancellation from the Roadtrip. Is there anyone else who would like to jump on as the room is currently booked at the hotel as a classic double. I will have to cancel this down by the end of today and if so any additional people will unlikely be able to get in with us this close the room will go to retail at twice the price.
