Focus' and more in North Wales

The second meet up and run out of the North Wales Ford owners took place on the final Sunday of June. Once again organised by Bobbie from the Focus RS Owners Club the meeting started at BD Performance, an RS and ST specialist based in Wrexham. The turn out was much improved over last month - I counted 21 cars at one point. As with last month most were Focus RS and ST although we did get a couple of Cosworths (an Escort and Sapphire) and a mk4 Escort XR3i which unfortunately (and unsurprisingly) had difficulty keeping up and got left behind.

The route was similar to the first run, from Wrexham we headed to the Ponderosa cafe at the Horseshoe pass, which was massively busy with bikers so proved difficult to find space for us all to park. We managed to get located but being so crammed in didn’t make for good photo opportunities hence the single shot from that location.

It was then on to Bala Lake and on towards Dolgellau, stopping off for lunch somewhere none of us had ever heard off, before looping back home via Blaenau Ffestiniog. North Wales is a fantastic area for driving roads which are relativly traffic free, even on a Sunday, and such drives are made all the more entertaining with the audio and pyrotechnic display of high power Focus RSs and RWD Sapphs that go sideways at every juction, roundabout and hairpin. 28th July is the next one. Looking forward to it!
