Salisbury Plain off-road weekend

Since we entered the 2018 Santana Trophy we thought we better get some off-road time in and test the equipment, people & the Land Rovers. We chose Salisbury Plain because it's roughly the same distance for all of us to get to and because there is plenty of space to get off-road.

Santana Trophy 2018

We have signed up for the 2018 Santana Trophy (what have we done!)

The Santana Trophy is a tribute, a homage to the past, to the classic Land Rovers and to the pioneers in rally raids like the Paris-Dakar or Camel Trophy.

Santana Trophy is a race made up of 7 stages (200KM across Morocco) driving Land Rover's. Navigation, orientation, driving-ability tests and rescues are all part of the day to day of the event.
