Another very successful region 13 Secret Hills Tour.
Secret Hills Tour on June 12th
On a rather damp morning 35 cars started from the Ludlow Food Centre after coffee and a bacon bap. But soon the weather cleared so we could enjoy the beautiful scenery on the 69 mile run on A and B roads via Presteigne, Kington, Kinnersley and Hundred House to our lunch stop at the Caer Beris Manor Hotel in Builth Wells. After a most convivial lunch, during which the traditional R13 quiz was handed out, we enjoyed more lovely roads, some fast and some slower, including the very scenic moorland road north of Llanbadarn Fynydd, complete with a large herd of cows on the road who were somewhat reluctant to let us pass! Reaching the finish at the Knighton Hotel, we parked up and enjoyed some further refreshment during the prize giving.
Our quiz winners with 22 out of a possible 31 points were Martin Lee and Andrew Jones, the questions were particularly difficult this time so very well done them. There is always a prize for the most miles driven on the route and this year two cars tied for the prize, these being Steve and Sarah Swaine, and David and Barbara Jones, both having covered only 6 miles more than the least miles driven (132 miles), the prize for which was won by our very own RO, Steve Cutler and his wife Helen. But the most coveted prize, awarded by the manager of the Knighton Hotel, was for “The car I would most like to take home” and went to Richard and Brigette Barron for their 1989 Guards Red 3.2 Carrera 911.
We owe a very big thank you to Pat and Sylvia Henson, who organised the Secret Hills Tour for the third successive year; once again their dedication and hard work made it a memorable day out.
