In the first part of our "where can I drive off road" series, we are looked at greenlanes. Now, in the 2nd part of the series we will look at off road sites.
Off road sites can vary from the popular "pay and play" sites through to off road centres that offer tuition in off road driving and recovery techniques.
As the name suggests, you pay an entrance fee to the site and then test out the capabilities of both yourself and the vehicle.
Part 2: Pay & Play Sites
As you are probably more than aware, byways are not the sort of places where four wheel drive owners should test their toys. So if you want to try mud plugging, rock crawling, hill climbs and winching, then you should head for one of the many pay and play off road sites dotted all over the country.
Off road driving entails certain skills that you need to get the most out of it, and a pay and play site is the place to learn and polish those skills.
There are many different sites that offer different types of terrain. One might be sandy, another might be sticky clay; another full of boulders. There are plenty to choose from and they are dotted around the country. Check in the one of the many Land Rover magazines, as the pay and play days are often advertised there.
So if you really want to put yourself to the test, get yourself to a pay and play day. They are great fun and more than worth the entrance fee.
