A Day Out In North Wales

As a relatively new Focus RS owner I’ve been spending a a lot of time on the Focus RS Owner’s club forums and whilst there I spotted a topic organising a drive out into North Wales. Being local and with a free Saturday I decided to tag along.

The initial meeting place was Delamere Forest with the next stop at the Ponderosa Cafe at the top of the Horseshoe Pass which is where I joined them. Due to short notice there wasn’t a massive turn out, but a compact convoy is easier to keep together and parking logistics are simpler - useful due to the favourable weather bringing the tourists out.

Representing not only the Focus RSOC, but also the Focus STOC and North Wales RSOC the assortment of bright greens and oranges ensured heads turned through each village we passed through as we made our way from the motorcycle mecca Ponderosa down the Horseshoe before turning off just before Llangollen to head to Bala Lake.

We stopped by the lake before heading toward Dolgellau. At this point I was running on fumes so had to divert. Full tank required next time.

It wasn’t until going through the photos after getting home that I realised every single vehicle present was turbocharged, so the feature title almost wrote itself!


Happy to announce we now have Adrian Flux on board for the club insurance scheme. Details here:
