Tractors on the Road Run
It is hoped that the road runs will be possible on Saturday and Sunday evenings.
Advice will be available on the Showground during the afternoon of both days in view of potential adverse ground conditions, traffic congestion etc. It may be necessary to limit the number of vehicles in view of the number of participants and the limited parking available on the Great Orme and in Conwy.
Both runs start from the Showground at about 6:00pm.
The Saturday run goes to the historic town of CONWY. All vehicle classes are welcome - SUBJECT TO HEIGHT AND WIDTH RESTRICTIONS IMPOSED BY GATEWAYS IN THE WORLD-HERITAGE TOWN WALLS. Please look at the map of Conwy and note the height restrictions, traffic segregation and one-way traffic system which is permanently in force. Please note that Conwy is INACCESSIBLE to full-height double-deck buses. Great Orme Tramway The Sunday road run takes a turn around the Marine Drive around the lower part of the Great Orme. This road is less steep, but still a challenge, and rises to 400 feet at the Rest and Be Thankful Café. The run is open to all classic vehicles except double-decker buses due to the overhanging cliffs into which the road is cut in places. Please note that the road is not normally open to heavy vehicles and this opening is a special feature for the Festival.
