There will be alternative routes in places to take into account the differing capabilities of the vehicles and skills of the drivers. Whilst these drives are suitable for all levels of experience, you should be familiar with your vehicle’s controls. All drivers must hold a full driving license and insurance for the vehicle they are driving, and all occupants must be seated on a proper seat and wearing their seat belt, if fitted. They will start at around 9.30 a.m and run until approximately 4 p.m, so you will need lots of fuel and a packed lunch. Due to the size (5000 acres) and terrain it is not suitable for spectators who are not in a participating vehicle. Dogs must be under control at all times. You will be travelling with a group of like-minded 4 X 4 owners led by experienced marshals, and whilst this is not a training day, they will be able to give you advice should you require it. £60 on the day, £50 pre booked Landcraft 4×4 web site
