We would like to add our thanks to Paul (he doesn't go on the forum as far as I am aware  Huh?) for a fabulous weekend in North Wales. A great drive and cryptic treasure hunt!!!

Our Sport broke a throttle return spring on the way home which meant we got home in double quick time  Grin

Hope it becomes a fixture in the LMC calendar!

Very bizzarre that we arrived in Colchester up the chuff end of Bob Dow's Flavia Coupe (never met Bob I don't think) but find he is also local to me. He did not want to stop, nor me want to follow him after driving 260 miles non stop....

Chris and I enjoyed the weekend, too. I was most impressed with the little Fulvia's handling, particularly on the twisty Welsh roads. There was a good turnout of Lancias and an excellent choice of hotel. Let's hope it becomes a regular event.
 Regards, John

 An excellent weekend! A very wide spread of Lancias, wonderful roads, with very little traffic and of course wonderful scenery. The Oriel Hotel looked after us all very well and it all made a very enjoyable and sociable event. A big thank you to Paul and all his team of helpers. Lorna and Adrian.

We can only agree with all the comments - we had a lovely time with good company. What more could one ask for?

Just to add my thanks - and thanks to everyone for being nice about the Ypsilon (to my face anyway Wink).

It really was a fantastic weekend and I do hope it will be repeated. Apart from the (shared) highlights above, good to see a white Fulvia barrelling north on the Friday, heading south on the A41 as we headed north, with large 'Lancia Italia' stickers in the windscreen and not involved in the WW, and passing the Christo/Malcolm Appia (twice! not sure how we managed that...) on the way back down. Also enjoyed being passed by a posse of Morgans on the forest rally stage and seeing the supercar procession revving past on the Llanberis pass.
