    Many thanks for all the replies folks, no derision after all :D plus it's good to know that I'm not alone in having a vehicle in a condition that warrants preservation. The suggested option of running a second vehicle just for off-roading is, in my case, impractical due to upkeep costs & storage. Unfortunately it's unlikely that I will attend Landyzone2017 but I hope all who do go have a whale of a time.

    Is burres still running a pnp? That's an open quarry which is mostly non scratchy, lots of steep slopes to play with and water. The quarry was a sand quarry though so there may be damage in the form of rapid wear to brakes etc.that's where my avatar is from.

    I've heard the name, I'll see if I can find out if the site is still operational. What time of year was your avatar taken, could the area be dry in summer I wonder?

    There is a lot of water, it collects at the bottom of the quarry and some people play in it. Others get really stuck.

    Went there a couple of times, first time I had road biased rears and bfg Goodrich at copies on the front. Struggled a bit but weren't too bad. Got rid of those and went with me hankook mt's they were pretty good, never really run out of grip. It's not truly clay mud there, lots of sand in the mix. Easy enough to get stuck if you try hard enough though.

    Do the pay'n'play sites over there have somewhere to wash your vehicles afterwards so you're not dragging half the site on to public roads?

    will be good attending a place like this

    i've got a set of cooper at/3 and would be good to see how they fare

    see what u mean ref some of the terrain and how easy it would be to get really stuck

    they is a quarry a few miles away from me and they tried to do an off road course, but it was solid clay , so they scrapped the idea
