    OK, you would be better searching for Pay and Play sites. Quite a few of the companies / organisers now seem to work thru facebook.

    But do make sure to check them out, I have seen some sites that appear to have quite maverick rules, might not be what you want with kids around.

    Cheers

    I regularly do guided lane tours with a company called trails and tracks 4x4 adventures, they are family friendly and nothing silly.

    If you can find a tour firm like the ones mentioned they do easy tours, more fun going out seeing places than driving round a site in my opinion

    If you don't want to damage your disco, don't take it off road. In fact, don't take it on road either cos summat is bound to break sooner or later.

    Get the 13 year old driving it:p
    From memory there's a place over Telford way and a place Northampton way, sibbertoft or summat like that. Green laning is better for me cos after twenty minutes in a pay and play boredom sets in and I start doing silly stuff:oops:

    @Barney87 look for the midland off road club they do kids trials(tyro)from the age of 13.
    On my last visit there were 5 youngsters driving disco/LR through the marked courses.

    I would rather spend the money laning.
    A days racing was entry fee £50
    Transport to the event,fuel food etc as this would be a 2 day trip.
    Of course you could damage your motor on lap 1.
    We entered 1 race £100. 10 miles per lap,10 laps a day & 2 days of comp safari.
    Oh them were the days...

    We have had some people think £50 is expensive however we are booked up until Aug so plenty feel it’s good value. If you consider it’s 3hours approx 18 miles continuous off road in a place no one else can access ? Come try it first and see for yourselves
