Around fifty crews assembled at Caernarfon Airport, Dinas Dinlle for this year's Taith Eryri on a bright morning that augured well for the day's drive along some of North Wales' most scenic roads.
With signing-on completed and route instructions issued, an inspection of the vehicles led to the Volvo Amazon 122s of John Lloyd-Williams and Janet Huxley-Jones being selected as the best presented car (see photos in the above slideshow). The participants were then given a drivers' briefing and the crews headed off to the south-west and the Llŷn Peninsula.
The leisurely drive led to Aberdaron and Uwchmynydd at the tip of the peninsula where beautiful conditions afforded great views along the coast and to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey). Lunch was available at Caffi Ty Newydd at Uwchmynydd and they have posted some great aerial photos of the cars on their Facebook page; click on this link - Ty Newydd aerial photos.
More photos of the participating cars can be seen on Islwyn Jones' Facebook page here: Islwyn's Motorsport Photography.
Following the lunch stop, the route led cars back towards Dinas Dinlle with more spectacular views; this time of the south-east side. On returning to the Caernarfon Airport the organisers were able to present the sum of £1,200 to the Air Ambulance representatives as a result of the support received by C&A Motor Club members for the event.
Congratulations and many thanks to Ifor Davies and his team of family and friends for organising yet another successful Taith Eryri. Thanks also to Sbardun, Pwllheli, and Williams Denton, Parc Menai, Bangor, for their continued support.
