Southern Counties Off Road (SCOR) Comp Safari Championship 2018


Recommended Posts

Hi,

As some of you may now, I take part in this series and it's great fun. So I thought I would let people know about the series and when and where it's taking place for you to come and spectate, take part or even marshall. Or just come and look at the photos!

The next event is this coming Sunday, the 20th of May over at Bagshot near Guildford.

I heard they do need marshalls, so if you're free and want to come along and help then please visit the website: www.scor4x4.co.uk for cantact details or message the facebook page: Southern Counties Off Road Club.

Hi Steve,

Would love to if I can. This what the AWDC used to be like before the wannabe rally drivers took over and the courses became flat fields! Ironically though Bagshot prooving ground was the first gravel track comp that started the decline IMHO.

Yes, very true. A lot of the AWDC tracks are, as you say, flat fields! Where's the skill in that? You just need a fast vehicle. I love the tight technical tracks between trees even if it is fraught with danger!

Well, I'll see for myself on Sunday and report back! ;)

A cracking day today. I thoroughly enjoyed the short 2.3 mile course at Copford Sawmill.

A great turn out too!

A wide variety of vehicles new and old turned up.

Pictures and video soon!

Yep, that's me! :D

Hopefully people can cant get a sense of what the competition is like. Let me know if you want pictures of other cars and I'll see if I have any. It's quite interesting to see what other people have done.

The next race is over at Bilsington Priory, a wonderful scenic location.

They need marshalls (a print screen!): On a side not, how do you reduce the size of the picture to remove all the white?!

Another successful race!

A minor wheel arch issue, but completed 9 laps of the 5 miles course and in the end the rain wasn't as bad as forecast.

Scores are in:

Now in fastest time order! Yes, I'm down the bottom!
