We have a meet arranged for (re-cap) June - Evo Run and FCS, July - Donny and this is planned for Aug.

This is the same set of roads Jeremy Clarkson took the AMG Black on.

It's a fair trek for me and some of the northern boys so may suggest to go down on the Saturday and get a travelodge for a Sunday run.

Preliminary plans are that, a weekend including a few pints and a run on a Sunday.

Few roads:

If you are coming from NW, you'd be better off IMO going to Betwys y coed area in north wales, driving the evo triangle etc, then heading down through wales to Brecon/Llandeilo area, stopping the night, then bomb round the black mountains for a couple of hours, then head back up.

The run from the village (on the edge of the black mountains) I live in to llandeilo, over the mountains, then back again in a loop is about 50/60miles....just to give you an idea.

If you need any arrangments made locally I'll happily pass on my number to you and I can sort a few things out here for you. Eg Ive got a mate who runs a cracking pub/Inn up the road, great food, lovely accomodation, can get a price on a group of you staying. Just an idea like.

This not happening then? Offer still stands for me to make some local arrangments if required....

I still want to do it, but when it's warm. If you want to make preliminary plans for some time in March then that's fine with me.

Last thing I want is to go down and it be wet as fook. I'd love to come down on Friday/Saturday night, get a hotel, go out the Friday/Saturday night and do the driving on Sat.

You up for that. I'm sure I'll drag Tommo along.

That would be the same kind of idea I'd be having. A bit of comfort in a Hotel would be grand. Evo Triangle sounds awesome :D

I'd ****ing love that. RR at yours and a run. Hmmm, alot to fit in on a weekend though. How about RR on a Friday. Sleep over Friday plus night out Friday and run Sat?

yeah sounds good.

Night out might be awkward if you stay near me/the mountains, as we are 15miles out of swansea city. all there is round me is local pubs. saying that, a meal and a night in the pub isnt all bad.
or you lot stay in swansea itself and we go into the town...

Yeah, I was thinking of staying in a town centre then drive over on Sat am.

See what's what though, see who's up for it.
