Hi guys, smallish event at Cardiff Bay, Sunday June 10th.

A couple of coupes attended last year, anyone fancy going this year, if we can get a group together? Quite a few nice cars there last year. Have to be there before 10am, can't leave til 3pm, so plenty of time to go for lunch and a walk etc.

Entry is a tenner, via their web site.

I may come down to spectate this if anyone is showing.
If the weather is nice on the day I'll bring my boat to the bay and anyone is welcome for a spin around the bay.

Have you really got a boat, Mr Tickle?
How exciting.
I felt someone ought to reply, thank you for your generous offer, and find out what sort of boat you have.

Are you all aware that there is a major boating event happening in Cardiff the week of this event; the volvo ocean sea race Volvo event
Leg 10 starts on the Sunday - It will be packed out around cardiff bay so a good day out for anyone who comes.


Boat is a Searay180, its small but fun assuming there is still some room on the water laugh

Tempting to have a mini-convoy to this !

It's a great venue, and you can saunter off and have lunch / drinks in the nearby cafes/restaurants/pubs and of course you've got the Bay...

I'm free too.....

Right chaps, I've paid my tenner and emailed over the entry form.

Had a reply back saying the passes will be sent out a week before the event and that the coupes are more than welcome.

Would be ace if anyone with those club flags could come along too, I'm looking at you Joe!

Good stuff Joe, hopefully I'll have polished the car and got the wheels fitted. Might even be able to change the boost gauge, unlikely though.

Hi Biscotti, welcome to the forum! Love a barchetta, look forward to seeing it.

Yay good stuff, I was thinking of meeting up beforehand. Maybe meet at services of J33 then straight down the dual carriageway, get to go through the tunnel that way too.

Just let me know what time to meet at M4 J33 services . Not sure how busy it will be with other tourist traffic trying to get into Cardiff. Looking forward to this event. We are coming from Birmingham.

As Gripped has sadly pulled out, unless he pulls a muscle, and Joe is going down the a48 from junction 29. Joe, what if you skip a junction to 30, meet at services at 8.30, then we can get back on to the 48?

I'm easy either way, but if there's 3 of us with yellow peril, we could meet just outside the venue by techniquest? Yellow, do you know Cardiff at all? I reckon meet at 8.30/45 wherever we choose, I can meet you wherever you feel comfortable with.

Postcode for techniquest is cf10 5bw. It's 2 mins from where the cars will be parked. But if you want to do J30 or 33 that's fine too. Saves you having to get through the city.

My car's all clean ready to go.

Yellow peril, I'm meeting Joe at J30 at 8.30ish, if you want to meet us there, please do. Otherwise we'll see you at techniquest at about 8.45.

Theres some parking at the front of techniquest, it's disabled but they don't open til 10 so should be fine to hang about theire for a short time.

Hope you're having a good day, folks.
I'm working today, else would have joined you for Italian cars and plenty of boats.
Mr Tickle and Biscotti, did you have space to take your boats out in the Bay?
How did your race pan out, Toby?

My arm and neck are massively sunburnt. As red as my Ferrari t-shirt, a proper van man tan.

What a scorching hot day on the coast in Wales. Cardiff at its beautiful best. 4 coupes nestled between some hefty pillars looking into a packed area of parked up Italian sports cars. There was your normal exotica including the coupes, a Fiat X19 for sale, Strada convertible, 328 GTB, lots of 458's, lots of Abarth 500's, Ducaties, Alfa rarities, even a few Lancias including a gladiator of a rally Stratos which in my opinion outshine the other monster Lambos. The pink Maserati was horrendous but was given centre stage....! Never mind,
I reckon this event is one we should try to swamp next year all getting there early and enjoying a full breakfast overlooking the cars. The local area and facilities are second to none. The harbour area really nice clean and family friendly.
Finally it was great to meet more of the Coupe Clan again and hope to do this again next year.
