Created in 2009 by off road lovers. For those interested in 4x4 at all levels. Bring together like minded people. Allows access to events/ opportunities that an individual otherwise would not have. Have fun!
Aim to hold 2 off road events per month. Organise events and trips. Give access to those who dont own a 4x4 Organise/ subsidise events for those who own a 4x4 Socials – Stash - Society
£20 a year plus £5 LSU membership if not already a member. £10 most events (full weekends and/ or access to club vehicle) £5 – Greenlaning Socials
Trial driving over demanding terrain e.g. steep slopes, water, side-slopes, deep ruts, etc. Course consists of gates just wide enough to get through, each section gets harder to finish. You cant stop and the more sections you finish the less points you get (think golf). RTV Trials are focused on driver skill more than vehicle capability. Club vehicle is available for these.
These take place on unsurfaced roads (public rights of way) which are suitable for 4x4's. The club runs daytrips (eg the peak district) and weekends away (Wales, Sailisbury). Club vehicle is not allowed as they take place on public roads, but allow for some great sights and fun for passengers.
Similar to orienteering but just over a larger area and drive to the locations, using which ever route they deem best. Club vehicle use depends on where the challenge takes place, if done on private land it maybe available.
Trial where teams (1 or 2 vehicles, 2 people per vehicle) attempt to get as many punches as possible. Punches are hidden amongst trees in often difficult to access places. There are different levels of competition based on the vehicle, from fairly standard 4x4s up to custom made and designed vehicles. Club vehicle can be used.
Pay n play days are trips to disused quarries which are publicly open to all 4×4s. They are large sites for you to go wherever you like, if you can make it! Club vehicle is available and can be used to teach how to drive off-road.
Tyro Trialling is an introduction to RTV/ Punch challenges. Courses use gates but are set up so no harm or damage can come to the vehicle/ driver. Modifications to vehicles are not allowed. Club vehicle is available.
Step up from RTV Differs in that non-road legal vehicles are used and the terrain is more challenging. Focus not just driver skill but also vehicle capability to be able to be successful. Club vehicle not available due to level of difficulty.
Against the clock. Time trials which require the use of 4x4 Consist of features such as jumps, water splashes, logs, narrow gateposts, going through barns etc. Club vehicle is not available due to risk of damage.
Drive our club vehicle (drivers license required) and learn how to drive off road. Passengering – best way to see the country (Salisbury to Scottish Highlands). Great way of learning about off roading to get into it. Half of the committee had never done it before we joined LORDS. 1 hour Land Rover Thrill experience will cost you £100 (£300+ full day) online, you can do it with us for £10 Socials and Christmas meals. Jobs – getting involved and being a member looks good on a CV
Available for pay n play events and when events run on private land. Drivers license is required to drive it. We make sure those who want to drive it can and so we wont overbook events. Experienced off-road driver will instruct you.
