This Sunday 6th April sees the first event of 2014 for Dragon Saab, the recently formed Saab Owners Club Group for South Wales here in the UK. Due to the very good reception the group has received since it’s formation plus the support of GWS and South West Saab’s we are now up to 25 cars for this event!!
The ‘Spring Roll’ rally will kick off with an early morning gathering at a local service area then travel in convoy to the Cardiff Bay Barrage where we have gained special permission from the harbour authority and barrage manager to be able to take our cars across the barrage which is closed to traffic but has a roadway for service vehicles. They have even set aside a special parking area for us so we can park up for a couple of hours to take in the spectacular Cardiff Bay and surrounding scenery. This should prove to be a wonderful photographic opportunity.
Once we leave the barrage we will then proceed along the Welsh Heritage coastline taking in a number of beauty spots along the way with a stop at the beautiful Ogmore beach. From there we will head back towards Cardiff via a different route with a stop at Duffryn House and finally a late lunch to round off what promises to be a spectacular event, not just for those attending but also for anybody seeing our 25 strong convoy of beautiful Saab’s covering a distance of some 75 miles.
I will compile a detailed report of our event next week along with some great photographs, in the meantime if you would like to visit our website www.dragonsaab.co.uk and look under forthcoming events you will find a lot more information. Finally, if anybody reading this wishes to join the convoy then please email me at [email protected]
