Trip to Kyrenia, northern Cyprus
A trip to Kyrenia was organised by a club member, David Marks, for the PCVC in conjunction with Scenic and Classic Car Tours, a UK based company which organizes car tours throughout the world. Their itineraries can be viewed on their web site. In March they ran two trips to N Cyprus, based at Onar Village Hotel in Kyrenia with UK travelers flying to Cyprus to undertake the daily tours in classic cars provided by Tamar, the hotel owner. Members who have participated in the N Cyprus Classic Car Show will know how good the Onar is. The following is a short report along with photos from one of our members, Leona Chellingworth who participated in this excursion.
“On Friday 15th March, 6 couples from Paphos Classic Car Club met up at Tsada. It was a wet, misty and miserable morning, but five of the couples still brought their classic cars for the run to the North.
We went via Polis to the border and all passed through with ease apart from Andy and Morag as their car could not be found on the computer !
By the time we arrived for lunch in Lefke the sun had come out and it was a beautiful run.
After lunch, rain had returned and we drove straight to our hotel in Kyrenia without any hitches.
In the evening we met some couples who had come over to Cyprus to hire classic cars and do some rallys.
On Saturday we joined these guests on a rally to Sadrazamkoy having met up first in Morfou for lunch.
On Saturday evening after dinner, trophies were handed out to the first three cars in the time trial test.
