Road run for clas­sics through Epynt.

A fter the blast par­tic­i­pants had on the last tour of South Wales, the or­gan­is­ers de­cided to throw another one and it didn't dis­ap­point! The group con­sisted of clas­sic en­thu­si­asts from both from South Wales and North Wales and the Liver­pool area, and they all ar­ranged to start in the ru­ral vil­lage of Pen­deryn.

The sun was shining and the con­di­tions were per­fect. Wayne Hank­ins lead the way from Pen­deryn to Ystrad­fellte in his arched and Zetec-pow­ered Anglia, the route fea­tur­ing clas­sic nar­row welsh lanes be­fore head­ing on­wards to Bre­con. The views were breath­tak­ing and the sun was high in the sky. Af­ter a pit stop in this his­toric town we made our way to the Epynt rally stages. These roads are in pris­tine con­di­tion and go on for miles and miles. We were in this area for hours to only see the army on ex­er­cise, the oc­ca­sional cy­clist and the odd sheep.

Day Two saw us head­ing to the Big Welsh Car Show lo­cated at Margam Park. So many cars and the weather was per­fect yet again a highly rec­om­mend day out for car lovers!

This is the sec­ond time we have or­gan­ised a South Wales tour and are look­ing for­ward to the next one. The or­gan­is­ers have de­cided to keep the tour in small num­bers as the or­gan­is­ers have to make sure ev­ery­one from slow to fast driv­ers are happy.
