Llys-y-Fran Hill Climb 17th July 2016

Llys-y-Fran is located not too far from Haverfordwest in Pembrokeshire.  It is one place I have yet to visit until I saw an advert for a Hill Climb organised by Swansea Motor Club, another event I did not know about.  The day started off extremely misty, I was worried that either the event may be postponed, cancelled or shortened until the mist cleared.  To everyone’s luck, the mist was beginning to clear, although visibility was not the best.  You can see some of the mist affecting some of the images but not enough to make them useless.

The first ever hill climb at Llys-y-Fran reservoir was in 1995.  Since then, it has gone from strength to strength, with plenty of competitors including an excellent selection of sports vehicles taking part.  For more information, visit the Swansea Motor Club Website.

Some images from the day are below, I have many more in my collection of the Llys-y-Fran Hill Climb on 17th July 2016.  If you took part and would like to see what i have of your vehicle then please use my Contact Form.
