Welcome to the Cambrian Mountains Tour 2020.
The event was first run last year as part of celebrations during 2019 to mark the 50th anniversary of Epynt Motor Cub. After such a fantastic day, we have decided to make the Cambrian Mountains Tour an annual event.
The Tour is open to all and planned to be a fun family day out.
The event is not timed and will provide a relaxed tour along classic roads and amid beautiful scenery. Both classic and modern cars are welcome.
Once again, the Tour will start at Llanwrtyd Railway Station, opposite what was the Askomel Hotel, which was the original home of Epynt Motor Club when it was founded in 1969.
Refreshments are included in the entry fee, starting with a bacon roll on arrival, mid-morning coffee stop, buffet lunch and hot two-course dinner at the finish.
There will not be a road book with tulip diagrams; instead only simple navigation will be required using Ordnance Survey maps. A map book and tour plate will be supplied, as well as clues to find en route.
The event will finish at the Belle Vue Hotel in Llanwrtyd Wells, where prizes will be awarded for the best turned out vehicles.
We would like to thank those who are sponsoring and supporting the Tour, as without their valued assistance we would be unable to run the event:
- Belle Vue Hotel
- Geoff Jones Motorsport
- LW Factors
- Mosley's Garage
- Rally Marketing
- West Wales Rally Spares
Epynt Motor Club have organised Stage Set Up and Timing Training at Ysgol Dolafon, on the 21st June starting at 5:30pm. Please book on by contacting Mike Kennett. All Welcome, refreshments provided.
What an event!
Sunday 19th May saw the inaugural running of the Cambrian Mountain Tour, where 50 entrants started outside the Eskomel Hotel at 9:30am, and headed toward Tal-Y-Lan for a lunch break at the Ty'n-Y-Cornell Hotel, enjoying the excellent views on a wonderfully sunny day. The 50 entrants then left back to Llanwrtyd Wells, arriving out are sponsor the Belle Vue Hotel around 5:30pm.
Everyone arrived back with smiles on their faces having had a great day out, collecting their participants award on the way. The event would like to thank our sponsors, The Belle-Vue Hotel, Rally Marketing, LW Factors and Hawktech, for their support in helping us get the event of the ground. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Bracken Trust and Wales Air Ambulance. The organising will announce 2020 plans soon.
