Hello, has anyone been to the above site??
This is it:
http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&sourc ... 8&t=h&z=15

I cant find a website for it, all that comes up for it are dates for a LR club that are going to it. If you search it on youtube these vids from the site and there are other cars than LRs, so it looks like it is open to all, not just LRs.

Ere Charlie.
Its a good cause yu are running, but Protrax leaves a bad smell in most laners on this and other forums. They are known for blatently ignoring good laning practices and charging the earth for it. You might have more support if they werent tagging on to your coat-tails.


Now let's have a look at Protrax:-

Our popular and probably one of the best training/4x4 driving sites in the country is [url]close to Stamford[/url], quite a drive for some people I know, but I can guarantee it will be worth it!


So the site is used by Protrax.
Whether you have to go through them I don't know.
You've got me at it now.

No I take it back. Those comments were about Tixover, also near Stamford.
So still a mystery site.
Not a truck in sight on Google.
