Driving Day – CHRISTMAS PUD SHAKEDOWN – Tuesday 27th December at Sudbury

The Shakedown

The annual "Christmas Pud Shakedown" driving day will again be held at the Sudbury site on Tuesday 27th December 2022

There will be plenty of varied terrain for you to test your vehicles, and generally get out of the house and get some fresh air in the woods at Sudbury. After the excesses of the Festive celebrations we could all do with something a little more active.

There will be some trial sections in the ground for those who want to try out or get some practise at competiton - although these are non-competitive and not scored. These are just for fun. Tyro sections are also included so unlicensed and junior drivers are welcome.

Please book in (and pay) using the form below. You can also see who is coming by checking the second box below.

Marshals also need to book in via the same form, but there will be no cost if you are not driving. As usual, the guys in the Rover Rescue/4x4 Response section will be on hand to marshal or provide recovery/assistance should it be needed.

Come along and have some fun at this sociable get together.

December Trials – DAY into NIGHT – Saturday 3rd December at Sudbury

December Trials - Day into Night - Sudbury

The annual "Day into Night" trials will again be held at the Sudbury site on Saturday 3rd December 2022

The idea is to run a few sections during the daytime, then have a break at dusk, followed by running them again in the darkness. Quite a challenge!

You are allowed one extra pair of lights to help you see better. These must be below bulkhead level, so no roof lights or screen top lightbars. The extra lights don't have to point directly forward, so many people angle them slightly more sideways to show up the canes.

Please book in (and pay) using the form below. You can also see who is coming by checking the second box below.

Marshals and Officials can book in using the Officials Signing-On form as usual

Results

From the Comp Sec...

"Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves in the mud of Sudbury, 17 drivers, including the 3 from the Tyro competition enjoyed 11 sections. John Musham won the Muppet trophy for driving into a pool of liquid mud, at the same time 2 vehicles were trying to haul Cliff out of the same mud bath!"

"Ian Finch did extremely well, beating some RTV vehicles on semi mud tyres……"
