Seven Sisters 2019 – Fantastic Weekend!

Huge thanks to everyone that attended Seven Sisters 2019. We had a fantastic turnout and despite the weather, the event has to be one of the best yet!

We had a great group of people with plenty of light hearted banter especially towards Chris Powell. Chris’s interesting parking techniques Saturday morning tested the experience and knowledge of our marshals. (Checkout the photos of the red Discovery 2)The recovery was successful and handled safely by all. This hill will now been known as Chris(‘s) Hill 🙂

In other news, we had a few breakages and the most impressive one has to go to Josh Creffield. Josh managed to blow the rear diff in his Discovery 2 Saturday afternoon. They began the diff replacement at 4:30pm. By 7:10pm Josh was back up and running ready for the night event.

We had a very impressive variety of vehicles from Freelander’s and Suzuki’s through to heavily modified L200’s and some awesome challenge trucks! Of course not to forget all the varieties of Land Rover Discovery’s, Defender’s and a smart looking Range Rover Classic

We would also like to mention our regular Summer & Seven Sisters attendees Neil, David, Adrian, Gavin and Dale, who’s continued support over the years at all our events is always appreciated.

We are slowly sorting through all our photos and videos from the weekend. Feel free to send your photos into photos@shirelrc.com and we will post them on our Instagram and Facebook page for all to see.

Thanks again and watch this space for our 2020 dates!

Green Laning WhatsApp Group

Our Green Lane Officer Arran has set up a Shire WhatsApp group for green laning. This will be used alongside the usual channels to organise green lane days and weekends. Some of the events will be spur of the moment / short notice trips and as some people don’t tend to visit the Facebook group, its a quick and easy way to communicate and discuss green laning events.

Contact Arran on greenlanes-north@shirelrc.com to be added to the group.

Mannington Play Day – 27th August

Mannington is a site of two halves, one half has tight technical forest tracks with some deep swampy sections, mud runs, dug out climbs and gulleys, and the other half is a large open arena which is great for all vehicles and abilities, with water of varying depth so you can dip a toe or plough in bonnet-deep and lots of wide open climbs and tracks. A great site for all vehicles from shiny to hardcore.

Green Lane Day – Sunday 13th August 2017

On Sunday 13th August we will be running a green lane trip. It will start in Horndean travelling across Petersfield and finishing in Alton.

Play Day – Aldermaston Sunday 16th July 

Excellent site for all vehicles & abilities.

A technical yet friendly site, although it looks tight with lots of trees the gaps between them are wider than other sites and you can get most places on the site with a standard vehicle. Some deep mud and big bomb-holes for those feeling adventurous, plus plenty of lumps, bumps, etc. for technical driving.

Shire LRC @ Simply Land Rover Show 2017

  

Shire LRC had another successful day out in the sunshine at Beaulieu for the Simply Land Rover Show.

All Land Rover owners were invited to drive into Beaulieu and park up within the museum complex which always promises to be a superb day out.

A group of Land Rover enthusiasts met at Rownhams Services to join the Shire convoy and club stand.
