It's great when you live near some of the best driving roads in the world

Latest photo of most recent run over to Bala

Lately a small group of us in mixed cars have headed out from home in Oswestry north shrops to do EVO triangle - up A5 to Betwys y Coed cracking all day breakfast there at the Alpine Cafe then back to do the 'triangle'

Bloody awesome route ! No doubt you've heard mention of it via EVO magazine. Route is evolving trying other routes as well, all awesome.

Elise mk1 with me (trying) to follow, chased by MX5 and MGTF - photo here https://twitter.com/onlyoneadam/status/658715212825165824
no stupid antics involved just fun driving within limits

We were thinking of making this a monthly or bi monthly thing, people can show up any month as they please so I'd like to extend an invitation out to the forum. If you're up for it reply or PM me

Latest news

As many people can't make in in the daytime we are now introducing sunny evening drive outs - some of which may turn into midnight runs

Private email newsfeed coming soon .. edit 3.2.17 - and here it is

OK - sign up for group emails to be alerted to new drive outs . Makes it easier for me to communicate rather than having to log onto various forums

I may well be up for it, have done it a number of times now. Normally stop off in Lake Brennig to give Indy a walk and for coffee.

Probably Sunday is best. Was talking about doing something over the winter with the GT86 lot.

Hi Lauren we'd love to have you come along, this is likely to stay a weekday event right now if you can accommodate?

OK so our next run is friday 27th November

Starting at 11am from little chef car park by mile end roundabout on Oswestry bypass; the one with ESSO petrol station which marks junction between A5 and A483.

on google maps http://bit.ly/1Mt4wA7

If you can't make the 11am start, meet us at Betwys y coed Alpine Cafe for good food at 12.30 (cafe is by train station in Betwys) - we'll do the two sides of the triangle on our way back (A453 then back to A5 on B4501)

google map of triangle http://bit.ly/1Mt4XKU

Wanted to give people plenty of notice as its a Friday, I'm away on holiday from tomorrow morning until wed 18th nov so probably won't be back on forum before then - hope to see a few of you there !

Todays had a great drive from our hometown of Oswestry out to Bala and back - in fact the guys are actually going out again tomorrow for a more extensive run through Bala and most likely including the EVO triangle and then up more twisties past the ponderosa cafe on the horsheshoe pass and through llangollen

I can only do part of the run due to work, but there will be a lotus Elise and at least one mgf and maybe an mx5 doing the full run

Who's up for tomorrow? Start 9.30am from Oswestry or you could meet later at Bala lake

Glad you had a good time. What were the chances of me going to an interview on a Monday afternoon and being asked to do training the next day? Damn, would have liked to have been there.

I also found out at training today that I've got a full day to do tomorrow too! Nothing I can do really as I need to get it done. Have a good one. [thumbsup]

We've got a solution to that now - announcing Evo evening runs [Applause]

Now that spring is here we're giving everyone the chance to join in

Suggesting 7pm start from Oswestry down awesome sunny roads which may means a return leg in dusk / darkness, with certain longer routes turning into a midnight run ... this is going to be amazing

As this is also going out on the OC and retrorides I'll be setting up a private email newsfeed to make it easier to notify everyone

So who's in?

Friday's, Saturday's or Sunday's and I'll be up for it. I work nights so wouldn't be able to make anything during the week.
MR2 should be up and running/mapped by beginning/middle of May [thumleft]

Ok we'll bear that in mind hopefully there will be quite a few drive outs so a choice to suit most
