The Dragon Saab ‘Spring Roll’ Sunday 19th April 2015

Come and join Dragon Saab for our first event of 2015 ‘The Dragon Saab Spring Roll’. A one day event the ‘Spring Roll’ is a tour of the Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales. The day starts with those attending meeting at Cardiff West motorway services M4 Junction 33. We will be meeting at 9.00am to leave 9.30am.

 

Leaving the services we travel in convoy along the A4232 to Cardiff Bay via Penarth headland where we will be rewarded by a panoramic view of Cardiff and the bay area. At Penarth headland we will make our way to the barrage. At the barrage we have special permission to cross over the barrage in convoy. This will be a unique experience as the barrage is closed to all other vehicles so it will be exclusively Saab’s on the 1.1km road to our very own parking area. This area has fantastic 360 degree views of Cardiff Bay and Penarth. It will be a great photo opportunity!

 

From our Saab exclusive parking area, we have easy access on foot to Cardiff Bay where there are many outlets where refreshments can be purchased. Alternatively if anyone wishes to stay at the car park with the vehicles this is absolutely fine. We do advise that you bring a warm windproof jacket and jumper as it can get very windy at the barrage.

 

Cardiff Bay

 

Back into the cars we commence our tour back across the barrage and complete a loop of Cardiff Marina. Leaving Cardiff bay we then pick up the run which will take us through the Vale of Glamorgan where we travel along the coastline of the Severn estuary and Jurassic coastline. Along the route there will be many points of interest including, Penarth seafront with it’s impressive art deco pier, St Athan RAF base originally a WWII base , Ogmore beach which has stunning views of the Merthyr Mawr sand dunes and finally Dyffryn House a 19th century house and ornamental gardens.
