Pardon me for sort of hijacking the thread but there is a connection.

Me and the missus went to watch the finish of the Three Castles Car Rally late on Saturday afternoon after first visiting the successful Deganwy Prom Day.

After sitting on the prom for half an hour watching all these cars returning, we both agreed the event was missing something and initially could not work out what it needed.

Eventually, the answer came to us.

It needed Ian Turner. 

When will the organisers of these events begin to realise what Ian can bring to their events?

On Saturday we went for a picnic up to Llyn Brenig, we decided to approach from the Nantglyn end, thinking it would be a nice scenic drive with little traffic. Coming the other way  just at that time was the Three Castles Race and we were treated to the sight of all those fantastic vehicles passing us, we had to pull into every passing place,  it was like going back in time! People were sat outside their homes on chairs waving them through. All the drivers were driving courteously and waving as they passed. $walesflag$

In response  to Trojans question, I do have several pictures of Turner's Radio @ 30 Rhos Road, but the files are to big to go on here. I'll see what I can do.

I'm sure Ian would be chuffed at the comments from Bri. I think he's been providing commentary at the Aberconwy Vintage Vehicle Rally for about 30 years or so. That's a nice rally with vehicles built no later than 1972, with the rally taking place each year on the first Sunday in July. It is wonderful that people lovingly keeps such vehicles roadworthy for us all to see and admire.

Feel free to email them (and any others) to admin @ threetownsforum.co.uk and I will resize them and stick them on here.

I've not heard of this, is there time to enter my Spitfire ?(assuming it doesn't clash with another event!)

Merddin will be interested in seeing the marques attending the Conwy Valley Vehicle Rally. The cars from as far back as 1921 (some earlier) assemble at Gwydyr Park in Llanrwst from 09:00 and assemble on Llandudno prom from 14:15pm for the prize giving on the first Sunday in July.

Here's a few more vehicles that could be there on the day. They are members of the Automobile Club of North Wales.

What was interesting about the Three Castles Rally was that from the entry list, I only noticed one entry was from Wales and that was from Wrexham.
