Have a great one and try to use the awesome and quick A4212 from Bala through to Trawsfyndd - one of the best and well sighted roads in the area in my opinion.

We'll be constantly on the move all the way from south to north on sat and then north to south via a series of very convoluted roads covering all the roads worth covering, including routes used by Autocar, Topgear, Evo, Driver's Republic, Chris Harris and the A4212 leading up to the Hirnant pass. Will pm the route to you.

Thanks for that and you never know....

The A4212 is a cracker and worth driving from one end to the other and then back again!

If I don't catch up with you all have a great drive

What a great weekend! Hope everyone got home ok despite the torrential rain this afternoon. At least we were blessed with great weather the rest of the time.
Thanks to everyone for a most fantastic weekend and especially to Hetan and Marcus for organising. It was great to meet even more lovely 1M people!
Looking forward to the pictures - and of course news of the next outing.
Exhausted - but in a good way.

(I second all of that, as hubby and passenger. Lovely to see you all)

Big thanks to everyone for coming! An excellent trip made better by excellent company. Thanks to Hetan as well for locating such a nice hotel for saturday night, which was right next to some V-Power!

I've never been airborne so many times on a road trip. Truly awesome! Hope everyone got home safe. Pics and videos to follow.

And proof that the M3 can be relatively economical (338miles on a tank) - I managed to get back on the same tank of fuel I started out the day with, despite the initial 160 miles of frequent redlining on them bumpy roller-coaster roads.

Got home about an hour ago myself. So tired I can hardly type.

Thank you all for a fantastic and unforgetable weekend. So much fun.

It was great to meet those of you I'd not met before and good to see you regulars again.
Very much looking forward to the next meet.

Finally, a special thank you to Marcus and Hetan for the routing and hotel arrangements. Cheers guys.

Just seen the main bimmerpost webpage and the trip. Wow, amazing.

I was looking to do a Wales trip but never got round to it. Pls count me in if you do another one.
