The event, which raises money for St. Luke’s Hospice in Plymouth, is open to any Association of Land Rover Clubs (ALRC) members who can put a team of three drivers together, either in individual vehicles or double driving the same Land Rover. The format is similar to regular ALRC trials but spread over two days with ten sections each day. For added fun the event has an annual theme, this year it was ‘stars’ which was explored in various guises in both costumes and vehicle decoration.
After losing one of the regular trialing areas to mining works, landowner David Cobbold allowed the club to use fresh land in an area down the road known as Furzacre Wood. The estate donates the land free of charge for this event so that all money raised goes to the Hospice. David stated, ‘it is a pleasure to have Cornwall and Devon Land Rover Club use the Estate, not only for this charity weekend but year round’.
This year’s event raised over £3,000 for St. Luke’s bringing the running total to date to in excess of £28,000 to contribute to support the Hospice.
The full story and results will be in the September issue of LRO, which is out in the shops on August 5th.
