Saturday’s route is a technical drive; testing vehicles and drivers as we make our way northwards through the heart of the Lake District. However the views over the fells, lakes and mountains make the challenge all the more worthwhile and rewarding.
Sunday’s trails and tracks combine an element of relaxed and scenic with the odd twist that makes the drive that bit more interesting as we make our way through North Yorkshire’s valley’s and dales.
This is an Adventure Tour a blend of green road driving that explores both driver and vehicle abilities and capabilities with a combination of terrain however frequently with a twist that includes something more technical that requires vehicles meet certain standards and levels of equipment, as with driver confidence and ability.
