Every year we organise a Club Rally, the event moves around to different venues to give the maximum chance to members to attend their “local” event. It is a bespoke camping weekend (local B&Bs/hotels if you prefer) cocombined with a wide range of events, including: Greenlaning, Scenic road runs, BBQs, Beer tasting, trips on Heritage Railways, visiting local attractions and more. Suitable for all the family AND you can come in any type of vehicle, it doesn’t have to be in a Land Rover.

You don't need to be a S2C member

even need to turn up in a Land Rover!!
We're planning to organise a
fish 'n' chip meal on a special
North Norfolk Railway trip
from Holt to Sherringham; and
back again!
For those wishing to have a
behind the scenes tour of the
North Norfolk Railway sheds and
workshop then you're luck is in,
we're arranging it.
A club rally isn't a club rally
without Alan's famous quiz night!
Evening entertainment and food
will be arranged for all the family.
A number of greenlanes will be
arranged and guided.

Situated within easy drive of
many famous Norfolk seaside's and
attractions, the Fakenham
Racecourse provides a perfect base for
a rally, our 3rd visit here.

The camp site has purpose built
toilet and washing facilities,
a small shop for essentials and
a club house should the weather
turn against us.  Each pitch
has optional electric hookup.

Back for our third stay at the Fakenham Racecourse.  The site never fails to satisfy everyone who stays there, good clean facilities and a perfect base to explore the delights Norfolk has to offer.  Numerous events will take place, some ‘old favourites’ plus some new and exciting ones.

Annual Rally 9-13th August 2023 At Cromford Meadows, DE4 3RQ

This year the Rally will be held at the Matlock Rugby Club Ground in Cromford, Derbyshire at the foot of the Peak District. Cromford lies in the Derewent Valley and is forever associated with Sir Richard Arkwright as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Arkwright built the world’s first water-powered cotton mills here in 1771 and pioneered the factory system. Cromford developed around the mills as a purpose built industrial community which is now recognised as a World Heritage Site.

 

The Rugby club has good facilities of a good camping site on flat ground with a large club house. Further details and programme are in Built 2 Last as is the booking form. You can book online via the club forum HERE.

 

What a well organised by the Bristol Area on a cracking campsite this Rally was. Some 64 units with 140 attendees enjoyed a warm, sunny weekend on the Somerset flats.

Plenty of local attractions including some epic extreeme green lane routes. Side mounted mirror attrition was high, but no one got seriously lost and breakdowns were few !

Saturday saw a lot of activities; reverse steer Land Rover contest, the line-up, BBQ, quiz and raffle for the air ambulance which raised just over £1000

 

17th Club Rally - Ripon, North Yorkshire

Ripon Racecourse, Ripon, HG4 1UG

Despite the rough weather no one was put off and there was plenty of green laning and visits to local attractions. A big thank you from all the attendees to organisers Gordon & Wendy and all their helpers.

4th International Rally - Kelmarsh

NN6 9LY

Kelmarsh was a green field site literally just down the lane from Sibbertoft. This was by far our wettest ever rally. It was so wet that the off-road course had to be closed on the first morning as conditions were just too dangerous - even for Land Rovers.

1st International Rally - Sibbertoft

LE16 9UJ

The first club rally was held at the Avalanche Adventure Centre, Sibbertoft, Leicestershire, LE16 9UJ. On the site there is an off-road course based in an old sand/gravel pit. As you can see vehicles got stuck the recovery provided great entertainment for the rally goers.

Some 66 camping units booked in and enjoyed a warm August sunny weekend of fun. Activities aside from the off-roading included BBQ, quizes, a driving gymkhana, & a treasure hunt. The idea being that each club area organises and runs an event. The cost for this rally was just £35 and we had 1 international attendee from Belgium, 2 from Wales and 1 from Scotland! It was envisaged that the rally would be hosted by a different area each year.
