Over an incredibly wet and windy weekend, the club ran their annual training weekend which offered new and existing drivers the chance to test their skills on the demanding Trawsfynydd Ranges in North Wales.

Youngsters Lewis Hooper (12) and Max Hughes (13) once again got behind the wheel of their rally cars and impressed the onlookers with their incredible car control and the rain and wind lashed down.  Some of the current drivers then took advantage of a session on pace note training to further improve their understanding and skills.

Special Stage TV were also on site giving the drivers some helpful hints and tips on what to say in an after stage in car interview.

The following day, in vastly better weather conditions was based a few miles down the road to the excellent Glan-Y-Gors Kart and conference centre. The drivers were given motorsport master classes by James Wozencroft from the MSA on careers, social media, anti-doping and the true cost of rallying.Ex Junior champion and current Fiesta ST Trophy driver Cameron Davies also assisted giving the drivers the benefit of his experience.

After the drivers had refuelled themselves with the delicious food and cake from the hosts, they jumped into the karts for a wheel to wheel session to see who was the fastest.  As expected, ex-British Karting/Super One driver Riley Banks set the pace with all drivers having great fun.


There is now a few weeks until the next rally down in south Wales.  With only 3 scoring rounds to go, every driver will be looking to get the most out every stage for the rest of the season.
