The 2014 MSA Spring Classic was based in north Wales at the Village Chester St David's Hotel, ideally placed to enjoy a weekend of classic motoring exploring the stunning roads and scenery in both north Wales and England.
The MSA Spring Classic started on Saturday morning from the Village Chester St David's Hotel in north Wales. Following the coastal road, the route took us to the picturesque Victorian seaside town of Llandudno for our morning coffee stop at the St George's Hotel. We couldn't visit Llandudno without taking a drive around the infamous Great Orme (a limestone headland measuring 2 miles by 1 mile) before we headed off towards Anglesey for a visit to their race circuit, passing en route the medieval Conwy Castle, a World Heritage Site, and travelling over the Menai Bridge, the first modern suspension bridge in the world.
The circuit also hosted a round of the BARC Championship on this day, however we had exclusive use of the International circuit for 2 hours between 12:00 - 14:00 hours. A light lunch was provided at the circuit before we headed off for the more scenic part of the day towards Snowdonia, crossing the Llanberis Pass which provided some fine mountain scenery.
Our next check point was in Betws-y-Coed, the official "Gateway to Snowdonia". From here we headed east taking in part of the "Evo" triangle, before arriving back at our hotel base for our Gala Dinner.
A leisurely start to the day as we headed south toward the Horseshoe Pass which, at a height of 417 metres, offered some fabulous views combined with excellent driving roads.AD by the Romans, on our way to our final destination at the Heritage Motor Museum, Gaydon, where a visit to the museum was incorporated with a light lunch. The Heritage Motor Museum is home to the world's largest collection of British cars; it boasts nearly 300 cars which span the classic, vintage and veteran eras and is a mecca for car enthusiasts.
