I have just heard that the Chateau Impney hillclimb will not be taking place this year. I checked their Facebook page and it says that the 2019 event was the last one. Sorry if you have booked at the hotel you will need to phone and cancel your booking , I will speak to the hotel tomorrow and explain the situation.
One of our members John Lister and lives in North Wales has been kind enough to send over the information as below thought it might be of interest to our members .
Prestatyn Classic Car Show & run through North Wales (Prestatyn is about 30 miles from Chester, and located on the coast). This is held on the Spring bank holiday Sunday and Monday (24th & 25th May). The drive is on the Sunday with a choice of distances of about 60 or 100 miles, with the start in Denbigh (County Hall car park), all meet up for a lunch stop in a car park (burger van), then the finish in Prestatyn. The static show is on the Monday and held in the centre of Prestatyn, taking over a large car park and part of the High Street. If sufficient members are interested, an area could be set aside by the organisers for the club.
There is no charge, all free! The Council appreciate the number of visitors the event brings into the town.
