What We Do


Competition

The Club runs a number of competitive events. These range from gentle Tyros and RTVs, through to more advanced CCVs. We also run the occasional Punch Challenge or Pay & Play day.


Greenlanes

Green lanes are usually unsurfaced lanes, tracks or trails that are open for motorised vehicles to use. You can find these Byways all around the country and we organise trips out on these.


Social

As well as meeting for a pub meal once a month, we also camp overnight on our stands at many national land rover shows. We also camp at multi-day competitions.

Tyro

Tyro events provide an excellent starting point if you would like to try your Land Rover out off-road. These events are aimed at young drivers or novice drivers in newer vehicles, where gentle sections are taxing enough to get to grips with the car without inflicting damage.

The sections are set out across open ground with the intention of testing driver and vehicle without the risk of damage. This type of event gives a good introduction to the trials system of gates and scoring that is employed in both RTV & CCV events.

Competitors attempt to drive between the gates without stopping or hitting a gate. Each pair of gates decreases in value from 12 to 1. The object is to get as far round the section as possible, ultimately receiving ‘0’ for an error free drive.

RTV (Road Taxed Vehicle)

The ground used in RTV trails is more challenging than in Tyro. Sections are set out to make the best use of terrain, calling on the drivers ability to read the route ahead and taking the correct line between gates. Balancing navigation, gear selection, speed and steering is not as easy as you might think, especially on steep climbs, in water & mud or in forested areas.

RTV vehicles are fairly standard, but the regulations do allow for some modification to be made, making them more capable off road.

CCV (Cross Country Vehicle)

CCV events are the most extreme for the trials disciplines, and as such vehicles require mandatory safety features. They do not need to be road taxed

Many competitors in this discipline prefer to setup their vehicles purely for this type of event, opting to trailer their competition motors to the event.

CCV sections utilise the hardest ground in terms of side slopes, climbs and obstacles.

Punch Challenge

Orienteering punches are set out around a large off road site. You will be given a laminated card attached to your wing mirror. Upon finding a punch, you simply get your wing mirror close enough to punch the corresponding box on the card.

There are two types of punch – White, suitable for all vehicles and RED which is slightly more difficult and may require more advanced positioning

It always helps to have a passenger if you need to send them through some mud to get the RED punches
