On 9th June 2017 we ran a new one day event, The Three Castles Trophy, open to classic cars of all ages from 1921 up to 1985.
This event started and finished in our familiar base, Llandudno, and centred on twenty driving tests at private venues, including several stately home drives.
Prestigious halts included a lunch stop at the AA 2** Kinmel Arms, while both a pre-event Welcome Dinner at Dylan's on June 8th and a post event dinner at the Imperial Hotel on the 9th ensured plenty of social time. Coffee and tea halts were at a fine local inn and a stately home.
The route was of around 160 miles and was given in a tulip road book format. There were no regularity sections or tricky navigation, making this an ideal relaxed event for couples, first time competitors and older hands alike.
Not to mention, a driver's delight. The road sections covered some of the best driving roads North Wales has to offer, at a scenic time of year. The tests were enjoyable and varied. Running on a Friday helped to avoid traffic and ensured a happy event.
Rally HQ was the familiar 4* Imperial Hotel on Llandudno's heritage seafront, which offered special room rates.
