As ever unmissable, the FIFTEENTH ANNIVERSARY 2018 Three Castles Trial from 5th-8th June 2018 will again be based in the attractive seaside town of Llandudno.  Competitors will enjoy three days of competitive rallying in a special, relaxed format. Their cars will cover up to 500 miles on smooth surfaces, visiting many of the most attractive locations in North Wales and travelling over scenic rally roads.

Competition will take place over more than a dozen regularity sections and twenty or so driving tests on private land, some new to the event. Just as important, hotels, lunch halts and evening venues will be of a sustained high quality, for an enjoyable all round experience that's very hard to beat. For more detail, click Information.

Quite apart from the competition there’s so much to enjoy on the Three Castles. Llandudno is a charming town that delights and surprises first-time visitors. You will stay in Llandudno throughout, so you can make yourself at home. Our dedicated Hospitality Team ensures that lunch, coffee and tea breaks run smoothly and also organises no less than five evening functions over three evenings.

A first evening Reception and Dinner brings everyone together and builds the atmosphere. On Day One you’ll have chosen one of several dinner options. On Day Two, you enjoy a free evening, perhaps relaxing with new friends. And on Day Three, our Awards Dinner brings it all to a splendid close.
