regular EVO triangle area run ( A5 west ) acessible for northwest / west mids / mid wales. WE AVOID THE TRIANGLE ALTOGETHER for several reasons.

posted up photo of recent run in driving experiences see http://www.imoc.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?p=1645690#1645690

Awesome fun, anyone up for it get in touch please.

OK - sign up for group emails to be alerted to new drive outs . Makes it easier for me to communicate rather than having to log onto various forums

Might struggle with weekdays as I work nights but let us know and I'll try my best. I'll be in the Impreza for the next few months if I can make it. MR2 is off the road now till spring.

Last time we set off from Oswestry at 11am, we can always start off earlier or later if that helps, whatever time suits?

Oh right, I assumed you were going in the evenings. I usually sleep till around 2-3pm and start work at 8:30pm. Keep us updated on your plans though, and I'll see if I can make it [thumleft]

OK so our next run is friday 27th November

Starting at 11am from little chef car park by mile end roundabout on Oswestry bypass; the one with ESSO petrol station which marks junction between A5 and A483.

on google maps http://bit.ly/1Mt4wA7

If you can't make the 11am start, meet us at Betwys y coed Alpine Cafe for good food at 12.30 (cafe is by train station in Betwys) - we'll do the two sides of the triangle on our way back (A453 then back to A5 on B4501)

google map of triangle http://bit.ly/1Mt4XKU

Wanted to give people plenty of notice as its a Friday, I'm away on holiday from tomorrow morning until wed 18th nov so probably won't be back on forum before then - hope to see a few of you there !

Brilliant fun today! Varied route to add in more twisties [Smile]

Got to explore the handling in the damp conditions, on Dinos settings trackday tyres and standard black billies with soft apex lowerings spring up front it was incredibly neutral and forgiving.

Anyone that criticies these cars for being tail happy obviously doesn't have the right set up. Managed to keep up with a MK1 Elise although he wasn't really pushing his car or course, amazing yje way those Lotus scoot round corners

If you want to join us next time follow this thread thanks

Todays had a great drive from our hometown of Oswestry out to Bala and back - in fact the guys are actually going out again tomorrow for a more extensive run through Bala and most likely including the EVO triangle and then up more twisties past the ponderosa cafe on the horsheshoe pass and through llangollen

Who's up for tomorrow?

Be careful, chaps!

A bit of lift off and a little overcorrection make for what could have been a scary accident if anything were oncoming. Sobering.
