1st September 2002
The National 4x4 And British Off Road Motorsport show - to
give it its full title - was spread over three days, from
Friday the 30th August til Sunday 1st September.
Held at Trentham Gardens, near Stoke, the weather couldnt
have been better, Although i am told by those hardy/daft soles
that camped over that the nights were freezing. I could only
attend on the Sunday due to work, and parked my zuke on the
North West Rhinos stand which had merged with the Rhino Riders.
Had a wander round the show looking at the other stands,
including the mahindra stand which had more Suzukis than Mahindras!
(and there were only two Suzukis!!) Went round the 'scenic'
off road course in Jon Rowlands SJ410. dont know about anyone
else, but i didnt see much. A word of warning, DO NOT attempt
that in a leaf-sprung vehicle, all i can say is that it was
a good job Jon has a soft top! Saw Dave Jones Vitara on the
Specialist Leasure stand, which appeared to be sponsored by
Rhino Riders?!? And that basically was it. For a full weekend
long report and photos of what the RhinoRiders got up to,
