Thats the Suffolk version, not Scotland.

Just been looking at the website, I may join. I am south Essex, but its not that far away. Their off road site looks like maybe good option for me to take the D4 round their more simple tracks so I can get some experience without any damage to the car. Fancy a few green lanes too, depending on possible scratchyness. I may even allow the Mrs to have a try - Shocked

Any members on here and would you recommend?

Yes. That's the real one - Scottish.

I am not personally but know someone who is, they often have an open day in the summer months.

There is a nice country pub round the corner from their off road site so you could always pop up and have a look round and combine it with some good food Smile

Hi Lasertam,

I was briefly a member with my Series 3. The Series 3 is off the road for some time now so I have never renewed, but I did go to an open day and had a chat with their safety advisor.

The advise was that I would not be able to use the D3 as it does not have two recovery points front or rear. The only way you could do it would be to fit a hidden winch mount with two recovery points, or a full on winch bumper. They will not accept any vehicle with a single recovery point on the front or rear.

If you're looking for a bit of experience, I would suggest the local green lanes and a trip to Wildtracks to start with. I get my kicks through 4x4 Response Smile.
The SLROC track is also quite Sandy, and makes for a great grinding paste on anything that moves. It's also high sides so you run the risk of a few scratches, so if you like your paintwork, I wouldn't advise it.

This thing with 2 recovery points starts showing up how small minded these guys are, have they not looked at the very substantial recovery points on the D3/4s either of the recovery points would pull an old landy in half they are not lashing eyes as on a defender, but I bet they would use a kinetic rope now that's dangerous
