Weardale Challenge

11th June 2005

Once again the Weardale Off Road Centre was the setting for a great weekends off roading.

Saturday's driving day was well attended as members took the opportunity to put themselves and their vehicles through their paces on the site's varying terrain. The mix of severe and easy routes around the site allowed everyone to find a suitable level.

Sunday was the competition day with an off road challenge event run under the MSA's Off Road Challenge event permit comprising orienteering, trials and gymkhana. This gave us a much broader range of options for the event and gave this year's event more of the elements of challenge events that have been run for years by a number of organisations and companies. Unlike most challenge events (and in keeping with the club's philosophy) the Weardale challenge event is kept at an accessible level with limited equipment allowing everyone to compete on level terms. No winches or GPS units were allowed so the navigators had to navigate using the supplied maps.

This year's event comprised of a prologue, 9 pairs of punches and 4 challenges.

Pictures from the driving Day can be seen here.
