This was the first time Club Off Road had visited the site
this year due to foot & mouth, and it was a raging success.
Several hundred vehicles turned up to play in the mire and
the hazy fog just added to the atmosphere. Numerous recoveries
were necessary due to a plenty of over-enthusiastic driving
and one scary moment where an unaccompanied SJ's handbrake
failed sending it rolling backwards down a hill with the owner
it hot pursuit.
A memorable semi-successful recovery was where one SJ tried
to tow another out and ripped its own front bumper clean off.
you know who you are!
