Hopefully depending on work see you at Ceri, and the two Radnor rounds with the K9 Marshal Crew :wav:

I think you could add round 2 at Fron to your list as it is not far from Radnor.

So Chris, where in relation to Bleddfa, Fishpools or Monaughty is Fron?

Not sure, Peter.

At first I thought they meant Fron-Wen which is Fishpools....... but I was wrong.

I am told it is private ground which SK has found and it is in the region of New Radnor .......... but again I could be wrong !!

Thanks Chris at least we know where we might not be.

Is there a possibility of chasing up where it might be as some marshalls want to book campsites / accomodation. Given it's only 2 months away to the start of the season.

I asked Lilian about the Fron location, she says only Selwyn knows the exact location so I've asked him. If he replies I shall let you know.

He did say at Autosport that you could see it from Radnor and that it was up an exposed hill. So I'm guessing it's one of those hills you can see from Fiveways.

Selwyn says somewhere near New Radnor off the A44...

Just looking at a map of the Radnor area there is a village / dot on the map on the A483 just north of crossgates heading towards Newtown. This particular Fron is close to Abbey-Cwm-Hir about 10miles from New Radnor so maybe not the right Fron.

Looking at New Radnor this could just be the otherside of Radnor to where we usually race (5 ways)
