Breakfast Run

To coincide with taking the car of Sorn Al Evans and myself decided to brave the cold (-3 over mountain to Crickhowell) and go for a breakfast run ro the the very warm Honey Cafe at Talgarth on 1st April 2013.. A few others joined us on route and some at the Honey cafe itself, after a great breakfast in the warmth (have I mentioned it was warm!) we continued for a drive up to Llandrindodd via the Erwood road and hundred house road. We thought this road was cold with a decent covering of snow on the sides and fields but it was nothing compared to the Upper Chapels road at the Army ranges.

Chilly Willy 2013

The usual Chilly Willy run took place on Sunday 6th January. Some cars/drivers met at the Ty Nant pub in Cardiff and some joined on route at Merthyr. The was a brief stop on the Penderyn road to regroup and then another to meet others at the coffee stop near the Storey Arms stop (very cold this time of year). The run then went on to Elan Valley for lunch at the visitor centre and then the Elan Valley mountain road and dams before stopping at the Evo car magazine bridge shoot stop.

Club Lotus Castle Combe track day 26th May 2012


Looks slightly different this year in that you can take car on track at lunchtime (ie don't need to be a member of club lotus) and that there are stalls there this year as well.

Let's hope for better weather than last years although dried up in afternoon-see http://forums.seloc.org/viewthread.php?tid=304067

Great day out, meet up at Ty Nant at 8:30, meet others at M4 services before bridge. Full English when we arrive set us up nicely.

Our first run of 2012 was the annual Club Lotus Chilly Willy Run 2012 on Monday 2nd January.

The majority started from the Tynant Pub Morganstown Cardiff with some a little late! Myself (due to deciding if I wanted to risk getting my car dirty) and Paul08 who was trying to convince me to go!

We missed the others at the starting point but met up with Zasker near Merthyr Tydfil on route and then somehow beat the others to the first stopping point at the Storey Arms roadside cafe. It turned out that Mel had taken the group over the Hirwaun road which meant we slipped by them.

After a quick coffee we carried on the road to Sennybridge, did a loop around the Cray reservoir and then back for lunch at White House Inn Sennybridge LD3 8RP. After a wonderful lunch a nice, if a bit damp run over the very quiet army ranges at Llywel and then a gentle run home.
