I saw a beautiful old navy blue and cream double decker bus in caerphilly on the weeekend but could find no infomation about any shows etc. I suppose they have to take them for the odd run to keep them in fettle but it's a shame they don't have more chows for buses and coaches.

25th and 26th May is the Motorsport Festival at Pembrey. Last year had a really good mix of cars and showcases including F1, F3, Rally, Welsh Sports and Saloons, Drifting, Karts, Bikes, R/C etc. Allows everyone to get up close with the cars and drivers.

New car was great. A lot more work for me to do in this one with six gears and high revs that appear very quickly. Very promosing so far including a 2nd in class.

Do any buses go past Pembrey from Swansea? I'm seriously considering this if the bus stop isn't too far from the entrance

Not sure about buses to Pembrey, plenty to Llanelli. Maybe some kind pher will give you a lift. I would offer but my car only has one seat!

Nice one Huw.

Regarding buses, doesn't appear to be a Sunday service unfortunatley.

I think there's a bus service that runs past it but I don't think it stops.

Either way, if I'm going I could give you a lift, would have to pass swansea anyway smile

Ok thanks everyone. I'm also going to the Singleton Classic Car Show (May 6th I believe?) and I know it's not South Wales but also the Bristol Italian Car Day
