Use your Shire membership with other clubs

As a benefit to our members we have confirmed reciprocal agreements with Dorset Land Rover Club and Solent & District (SADLRC) that Shire LRC members can attend their events using their Shire membership, and members of those clubs can attend our events with their membership.

Click here for more info.

We are hoping to add agreements with more clubs in future – if you are involved with another club who would like to join this arrangement please contact us.

Become a Green Lane Leader

We really want to run more Green Laning days, but the club doesn’t have a lot of people who feel comfortable setting up and running one.

So we’re running some “How to run a Laning Day” coaching sessions. They’ll likely take the form of a few hours in an evening to cover the theory (how to choose routes, record them on mapping apps etc) and a half-day practical putting it into practice (safely driving the routes you’ve planned).

No previous experience needed, just a willingness to learn. You don’t even need a running truck, as we can do this in pairs.

Click here to register for a session on Eventbrite.

Anyone for Dunsfold?

You may not be aware but Dunsfold Collection is home to the largest Land Rover collection in the world – with a huge variety of rare Land Rovers including all manner of prototypes and specialist one-offs.

We are gauging interest for a club visit later in the year – if you’re interested in coming along as part of our group please contact us here or on Facebook and let us know!

New website!

You may not have noticed but our webmaster Chip has been very busy transferring our website over to a new provider, which means it now loads MUCH faster and works more smoothly.

Thanks Chip!
