The Leicestershire & Rutland Land Rover Club was formed in 1989, is a member of the Association of Land Rover Clubs and is an MSA recognised club. They have a membership of approximately 130. The club has enthusiasm and holds competitive events of all types, usually alternating between monthly Road Taxed Vehicle Trials and Cross Country Vehicle Trials. They also run Tyro events for both licensed and unlicensed drivers to encourage the younger members of the club to get involved.
Full membership is £21 with families able to join for £26; this includes couples living together and their children over 14 years of age. Younger children are able to take part as passengers at Tyro’s and gymkhanas. Social membership is also available at £10 for those who only want to passenger at events. Members have a wide range of Land Rover vehicles from Series Land Rovers to a Range Rover Sport all of which regularly take part in trials events.
The club organises caravan and camping weekends, usually in association with vehicle trials during which gymkhanas, children’s bike trials and barbeques are arranged to provide fun for all the family. Green laning trips are organised by the club’s Rights of Way officer.
Anyone who is a member of an ALRC club is always welcome to enter their events or just camp with the club and share a beer. Members also attend events run by other ALRC clubs around the country with teams usually entered in the Majors Memorial Trial and the ALRC National Rally.
This year the club is organising more Interclub type events with their neighbouring ALRC clubs in an attempted to offset the ever increasing cost of trial sites. It also has club stands and arena vehicle displays at local shows. Money raised at these events is donated to the club’s charity of choice.
The monthly newsletter is emailed to members, and includes articles about previous events and information on forthcoming ones, and together with the clubs website www.lrlrc.co.uk keeps the membership up to date with what is going on.
The club meets the first Wednesday of each month at The Boat House, Barrow on Soar from 7.30pm onwards. New members are always welcome so why not go along and take part in the quiz or just chew the fat about your favourite subject.
