of the MSA Spring Classic have this week opened entries for next year’s
hugely popular scenic tour for classic cars which takes place over the
weekend of 25-26 April.
The two-day, non-competitive route starts in the Vale of Glamorgan and
takes in the breath-taking mountain scenery of the Brecon Beacons and
the idyllic coastline of the Gower Peninsular. Along the way, a number
of scheduled stops at stunning venues will include Llangoed Hall and the
National Botanic Garden of Wales.
The MSA Spring Classic traditionally includes an element of motor sport
for those who enjoy the thrill of opening the throttle that bit further.
This year, visits to both Pembrey Circuit and the historic Shelsley
Walsh Hillclimb will provide a challenging and memorable experience for
both drivers and cars.
After two sell-out events, next April’s third MSA Spring Classic is sure
to be over-subscribed and organisers are urging people to get their
entries in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
“The itinerary for this year’s MSA Spring Classic looks really
enticing,” said Ben Taylor, Managing Director of IMS, the commercial
subsidiary of the Motor Sports Association. “It’s the perfect way to
brush off the winter cobwebs, warm up the engine and enjoy a relaxing
weekend of motoring through beautiful countryside and challenging roads.
We expect another capacity entry of 100 cars for the event and look
forward to welcoming everyone to South Wales in April.”
Among the cars involved in the 2014 event were some of the most iconic
marques of the British sports car industry, including Alvis, Aston
Martin, Austin Healey, Bentley, Jaguar, Lotus, MG, Morgan, Sunbeam,
Triumph and TVR. They were joined by classic names from around globe,
such as Porsche, Mercedes, Ford and Chevrolet.
