Today marks the start of the tenth annual Three Castles Welsh Classic Car Trial in Llandudno. 120 classic cars will take part in four days of rallying in various locations across North Wales.

Drivers will take in 550 miles of scenery on Anglesey, in Gwynedd and Clwyd, during what's now the UK's most popular classic car event.

Visitors can expect concours, rallying and at least a dozen new driving tests at stately homes, airfields and even on a farm.

Rally Director, Ian Crammond, said: "We are determined to make our tenth anniversary truly spectacular."

The event kicks off this morning with a concours d'elegance at Llandudno Promenade and is followed by a scenic drive to Portmeirion.

This year, proceeds from the event are going to Ty Gobaith, a charity providing free palliative care to children with terminal illnesses across North Wales.
