We have had our first ‘official’ Dragon run for the 2016 season and we used ‘Drive it day’ combining an excellent lunch at Castell Deudraeth followed by a visit to Portmeirion village…. a great day with nine cars making up the convoy.

Prestatyn Classic Show
Our second event and this was spread over two days the first an eighty mile ‘Run’ followed by a show in Prestatyn town centre on the bank holiday Monday, We had nine cars for each day a sterling turn out by The Dragons !
On the TRDC ‘Bullet Run’ the Dragons welcomed the cars at Lake Vyrnwy at the Artisans café at the end of the famous dam, our mascot ‘Idris’ was very well received together with Mark’s new Rally car on it’s first official outing !
Spa Summer Classic
A few Dragon members went over to Spa Francorchamps to see the Spa Summer Classic and this over five days, sailing from Hull to Zebrugge. Staying at a chalet in the nearby campsite and a serious amount of racing and Belgian beer was taken in over the long weekend and many 60’s,70’s & 80’s cars were racing over the weekend. Some rain to the circuit added some very dramatic spectating and one particular car had us all cheering I’ll let the photograph do the talking !
Some guys went over to the Le mans Classic and detail to follow on this second international event ( we do like to get about a bit !)
Classic le Mans
Tern Valley Show
First time the Dragons have attended and it also included a show of tractors and steam powered vehicles and tractions engines, made a great addition to a standard ‘classic’ show
Gold Cup Oulton Park
This was over the last bank holiday weekend and the qualifying and racing was well worth viewing.
Cholmondeley Castle 1000 Classics
This is the stand where we won an award for our display of sevens and we had a couple of our recent new members on the display, Aaron and Howard.
