Over 275 rally plates had been sold the organiser said, but they weren't expecting them all turning up, but she reckoned over 200! It is a yearly event which we nearly always attend, but this year was different as they could not have their usual toilet/refreshment stop at Rhos 3 of them had a slight shunt on the zebra in Rhos which caused mayhem and a tailback for a short while . There is a good picture from the summit on FB.

Tellytubby sent me an e-mail that showed a picture of this car on facebook with these comments  "Re: Old car on Wonder if this is now a local footpath.  Oops...a car accident on the mountain road to Nant Gwrtheyrn, Wales. That's a bit steep, probably his bill was too! "
If anyone has walked down to Nant Gwrtheyrn in the early 70's or prior then they will have remembered what a bad track it was.   It was just an uneven  dirt track that zig zagged it's way down the steep slope to the abandoned village at the bottom.    We did the walk on the hottest day of the year and it was horrendous, it wasn't fit for walking on let alone driving down
I think that Nemesis may have walked there around about that time too.
The track is now a tarmac road but if we ever have a walk in the area we always leave a car in the village as that hill is so steep so we opt for the easier option of a ride up the hill

Yes Hugo, we did walk down and back up.....never again. ! The mark 8 Jaguar was a heavy old beast and would take some shifting ! We went back many years later, after the new road had been 'built', but it was a dreadful day, siling it down with rain, so my OH decided that it would be foolhardy to attempt the road, given the volume of mud. The fact that we had just got a brand new car must have also been a factor ! Tell Tellytubby that we thought that his picture was great.
