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 πŸ™‚

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 Lane Day – Hampshire

On Sunday 11th August we have a green lane event around the Petersfield / Alton area.

Our green lane events are exclusive to members. If you are not currently a member and would like to come along you can join online.

If you would like to come along please email events@shirelrc.com with your Name, vehicle details and membership number.

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.
