WHY NOT TRY ONE OF OUR WEEKEND EVENTS. TWO FULL DAYS OF DRIVING IN SOME OF THE MOST SCENIC AREAS OF THE COUNTRY.

THESE EVENTS COME HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

YOU WILL BE GUIDED THROUGH THE ROUTES AT ALL TIMES, WE PROMOTE RESPONSIBLE ATTITUDES TO THE TRACKS AND OTHER USERS.  GROUPS ARE LIMITED TO 4+ LEADER  AT ALL TIMES. GLASS GUIDELINES ADOPTED IN FULL.

OUR VEHICLES ARE FULLY EQUIPPED AND OUR GUIDES ARE ALL EXPERIENCED OFF ROAD DRIVERS. WE MAY ALSO  USE ONE OF YOUR  VEHICLES TO LEAD IF CIRCUMSTANCES & EQUIPMENT LEVELS PERMIT.

We aim to meet at 10.00 on day 1. At this initial meeting we will introduce ourselves and explain what we will be doing for the first part of the day. Your paperwork will also be taken in and we will check over your vehicles to ascertain what you carry in the way of recovery equipment, recovery points and communications. This will help us place the vehicles in order of running for each part of the day. All vehicles must be road legal!

Please also remember to bring packed lunches and drinks.

There will also be a safety briefing, questions and answers and time for you to meet the other participants, ”diff sniffing” I believe is the term used nowadays!

We will also hand out some further information including our contact details, and some generic risk assessment forms.

The Group will then set off towards the first lane/track which will be a gentle introduction to our day, and from then on the difficulty or challenging nature of the route is purely down to the team leader and type of vehicles being led around.

If any of the tracks have a significant difficulty the Team Leader will brief everyone before entering the track and offer an alternative route  if required.

After two or three tracks there is a break to check that those without CB radios are happy and take some photo’s. Also on some occassions the lead vehicle may stop the group before a particular section – go ahead and photograph you guys negotiating the terrain.

By 12.30 ish we will normally have covered between 7 and 10 tracks, depending on the route and we then stop for you to eat your packed lunches and discuss the day so far. It is a good time to ask questions about the tracks and how they should have been driven.

After lunch we change the running order in the convoy and head off for more tracks and features of the area. Again we hope to include another 10 or so tracks for you, stopping for photo’s, drinks in some of the more scenic and photogenic places en route. Occasionally we have to stop if one of the group gets stuck or suffers a flat tyre. Our routes are flexible to allow for all eventualities.

We aim to finish at around 4.30pm near to a major trunk road to allow you to get back to your accommodation with relative ease.   Day two starts at 10.30 to allow you to enjoy breakfast pack and book out without being in a rush!
