Too big Jed, Syncro only just gets through a few of the sections - and even then the odd tree gets scarred by no-one inparticular.

Shut it you......

I concur with a Jim, there's several areas you wouldn't get through, due to mature trees and feckin' big rocks.

We did have a guy in a Landrover 110 Station wagon try to get in on the course last year and he got a bit shirty when we told him we did not want to spend half the day recovering him out of the `S' section. :rollin

There are always a few chancers who want a go. This year we had four lads in a slammed BMW who wanted to take a spin around the course. I told them we'd think about it but only if they didn't mind us cutting their car up to get it out afterwards.

Last year I drove a T5 4Motion guy around. He spent the whole time blabbing about how his van was state of the art and better in every way than mine. When I invited him to drive the course he said he couldn't because he had his awning out and the pop top was up....

The lh front tyre stopped holding air after camperjam. I had reduced pressure to 25psi for the off roading but it felt a bit low driving home, checked and was less than 10psi !!!!! anyway had it sorted today, seal around edge had gone with loads of sandy soil we all know the colour) in the bead area and the valve stem was leaking. All sorted now and back on van. No damage to tyre. Thes BFG Muds are soooo tough.
