This year saw the return of the popular Taith Eryri classic run after an absence of three years. Starting from Pant Du Vineyard and Cafe, Penygroes, an entry of almost fifty cars followed a route of about 90 miles around Eryri and the Llŷn Peninsula. The morning leg took in Nantlle, Beddgelert, Prenteg, then in the direction of Criccieth before heading for Lithfaen and a lunch halt at Nant Gwrtheyrn. The afternoon section saw crews heading for Nefyn, Botwnnog, Rhydyclafdy and Clynnog Fawr, to a finish at the Air Ambulance base at Caernarfon Airport, Dinas Dinlle.
This year, a special award was given for the best presented car in honour of late club member Huw Moss. The award went to Alwyn Williams and his Ford Anglia and was presented by Huw's family with the Air Ambulance crew.
The monies raised by the event enabled C& A Motor Club to donate £1,186 to the Wales Air Ambulance charity. The Air Ambulance relies entirely on charitable donations and we are pleased to be able to make a contribution to the funds required to maintain this that important service.
Many thanks to Ifor Davies, Peredur Davies and the family and their helpers for organising the event. Thanks to Pant Du and Nant Gwrtheyrn for the use of their facilities, and to the sponsors - Sbardun Car Accessories, Pwllheli, for the rally plates, and Gwynedd Farm Machinery Ltd for the roadbooks.
Many thanks also to Karen Thomas for permission to reproduce her photos.
