Sunday 6th January 12pm start
For those that have been before you will know what a great off road site it is. For those that haven't got the wheels muddy here before we have 3 difficulty levels with winching banks, hills ponds and trees. There is something for every skill level and vehicle capability from shiny new 4x4s to the hardcore off roader! Routes are graded. They start at Blue then Red and lastly Black. Blue (easy) standard vehicle on road tyres, suitable for novices who have some basic 4x4 driving experience. Red (moderate) Mud Terrain Tyres and Black (Difficult) Lift Kit, Winch, Mud Tyres. These Black routes are extreme and you will require the use of your winch! As some of the BLACK routes are very challenging! there is plenty for everyone. We have a band of dedicated marshals who are happy to offer any help or advice on the day.
We love all 4x4's but we are also experienced enough to know that not all 4x4's have been designed for off road use. Many modern cars are for 'All Road' use which is a clever and correct description for cars that have 4x4 for use in snow on gravel tracks and smooth surface fields etc. Cars that don't have a low ratio transfer box but perhaps have permanent 4 wheel drive and/or traction control or some kind of hill descent control are great for the loose slippery tracks we have on site. However they may not be suitable for our 'BLUE' routes - marked as suitable for all 4x4's - due to the steeper slopes they utilise. Engine braking using a low ratio transfer box or hill descent control will be needed to traverse these routes safely in a controlled manner.
We strongly advise drivers of such vehicles to have one to one instruction prior to using them on our site. This will ensure you understand the vehicles capabilities and that it is used in a safe, non damaging way.
