Guest dew110CSW Posted August 21, 2007 Share Posted August 21, 2007 I know theres a mag thread already, but I feel the need to let off a little steam. You may remember the little incident my friend with the P38 had at billing this year, well up until now LRM have been more than co-operative in getting this sorted, but all of a sudden they've just turned round and down right refused to pay for anything even though the RaRo has damage totaling near £3000. Basically for those who missed it, we were tackling the off road course and got the mud run. All of 5 meters in and it was stuck, so we were dragged out backwards then hooked up to some little hybrid 90 thingy that was going to tow us through a gate to safety. Notice I said through the gate, as it happened he towed us straight into the gatepost, traveling way too quick to give us time to react and creating more of a problem then there already was. We tried everything to get him to stop, brakes, horn, witnesses were shouting, but still he goes and straight pulls us into a solid metal post. Then we get who appears to be in charge coming round to look, although before that a Disco was almost pulled into the exact same post. Now he starts going on about having a vehicle fit for the conditions, although it was wearing A/Ts at the time and the course should have been able to facilitate vehicles such as this. We never took any sections that we were advised not too and asked all the marshals at the start of sections whether they thought the P38 would make it through. Apparently a waiver was signed. Now this consisted of a box of signatures, no text to read or disclaimer, just literally a signature. How can they call that a waiver, surely by law you have to actually have it there to read before it can be officially classed. It's not that so much that is really cheesing me off but the fact they wait till so long afterwards, whilst seeming to want to help, before shooting my mate down in flames. The RaRo was his dads, who is currently out in Canada, and he can barley afford to run it half the time, let alone shell out three thousand pounds to repair the mess that LRM's so called safety crew have caused to it.
