Essex Land Rover trial set for Thurrock

THIS is the 15th Easter interclub weekend. This year it is promoted by Essex Land Rover Club for the Trials events and Southern Counties Off-Road Club for the Comp Safari.

The event is intended to provide a long weekend of enjoyable off road motorsport over a variety of events running throughout the Easter weekend. With events for the novice, hardened trialler and Comp Safari driver it is intended to be a relaxed event to kick start the season and a means to prepare for the National. The event has been opened to all Land Rover and 4×4 clubs in the East of England to share resources, including both ALRC and non ALRC clubs.

With camping available we hope the social activity will provide as much entertainment as the motorsport. It is hoped that there will be barbeques and food available in the camping area, and a marquee will be erected as a social centre and meeting place.

For the children, there will be a Bike Trial on Saturday afternoon and an Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday morning.

The event is being staged at the Essex Gateway site in Thurrock near Lakeside Shopping Centre and adjacent to Arena Essex Arena. The site has been used for trials and comp safaris for over thirty years. This is a rural site so there will be limited toilets available; the more self sufficient you are the better. Details of local amenities will be provided in the welcome pack on site.

Marshals are always needed so please make yourself known if you would like to get involved. Enthusiasm is more important than experience! Contact the event organisers (see the contacts page) to volunteer.
