Hawkestone Park 3rd November

 

Hi All,

 

I am organising (a non JOC event) multi marque 4x4 day out at Hawkestone Park on Sunday 3rd November from 10am to 4pm for those interested. JOC members are invited to attend this event with road legal vehicles only. It is the site of Ash 4x4 post code SY4 5YJ And is in Shropshire. Some of you may have been before as JOC have hired it out previously.

 

I have booked the off road site for members of the green lane association.   It is not a general public day it’s only for the use of JOC and Glass.  We also have a fun punch hunt running that you are welcome to take part in and is included in the price. 

 

£25 pay on the gate on the day.. no need to pre book.  

 

Hawkstone is a site for trail rated 4x4 jeeps. If it is wet it can be slippy.  If your thinking of coming check with me a couple days before as Road or all terrain tyres can struggle if it’s wet.   Hawkstone has areas for every skill level and 2 professional instructors will be on site to offer help and advice.  It is a safe and well  site  and is not a mud pit.  

 

Some of you may know me from summer camp and previous Hawkstones (I am one of the  green lane groups leaders at summer camp). I am also JOC Shropshire rep.  

 

Any questions ask away .  Also if your interested please let me know by posting below.

 

thankyou

Yup £25 per jeep regardless of how many of you drive it.  As you as all drivers have passed their test of course  🙂

The longer jeeps can have an advantage on some of the hill climbs but then so so much amogst the tree sections. Something for everyone

I can definitely think of one hill descent that is more suitable for Lwb Jeeps.....

Interesting that the JKU is about 8" longer wheelbase than the WK, but the WK is only about 1.5" longer in the body (stock).

And the JLU is 9" longer wheelbase and 1.5" longer body than the WK. The XJ, KJ and WJ are all shorter in body and wheelbase than the WK, which is surprising for a 4 door.

 

All affects approach, ramp and departure depending on lift, body and tyres, as well as ascent/descent and turning. Will be interesting to compare other brand 4x4s at Hawkstone event.

Bit of a update  I have managed to negotiate a good deal so the entry fee will now only be £20 per vehicle.  Any number of drivers as long as the vehicle is road legal and all drivers have a valid licence. All drivers must sign on.  The punch hunt is included in the £20 fee

 

There is a cafe and proper toilets at the site along with a BBQ.

 

Any questions feel free to ask away

Nice one, thanks Stu.

What exactly is a punch hunt please? 🤔

So basically hidden around the site are 20 what look like staplers - each one has a unique pin  pattern that creates a unique hole when punched into a card. They are connected to trees or various things by a length of plastic cable.  On your wingmirror is fastened a card again on a length of plastic cable. The   idea is you have to get your vehicle close enough to the punch,to punch the correct square on your card. Explame punch number 12 (punch is labelled) punches square 12 on your card.  Your not allowed to remove card or punch ffrom the cable.  Its fun   some are hidden but easy to get at others need some clever thinking but all vechiles can get them and a coupel will be very hard for winch equipped trucks with lockers etc trying to get get them.

 

You may have  done something similar at school in orienteering
