Happy New Year to you all and welcome to 2020! I hope you are looking forward to a great year of trialling. Our events calendar for the year has been uploaded to the website, and I am now looking for clerks for the all of the upcoming events. Please comment if you are able to help out! 
In this next month we have a number of upcoming events;
Our normal trial on the 12th January at Binegar Quarry. 
The annual dinner and prize giving on Saturday 25th January at the Old Down Inn, Emborough. Book your place now! 
Timed Trial on Sunday 26th January at Binegar Quarry. I will post the pre-booking form in due course.  
The final set of results and overall standings for 2019 have now been posted on the website. If you believe there are any discrepancies, please let me know ASAP. 
Reminder also about the new requirements for the RS Clubman licence, so please make sure you have applied for this if you expect to compete. We will have paper application forms at the trial if you prefer, and this will not stop you trialling that day. For those who have already applied, you may have received your licence in the post, otherwise i'll need to see a copy of the temporary licence that will have been emailed to you. 
For those expecting to Time Trial, please also note the below newly implemented ALRC regulation.
Section H – Timed Trial – Specific Technical Regulations H.2. Seats & Seat Belts H.2.1 A minimum of a 4 point safety belt with two shoulder straps and one abdominal strap to be worn by all occupants whilst on section. Implemented 16th November 2019
Additionally, due to the increase in permit fees by MotorsportUK, our trial costs will be increasing by £5.
Sorry for the long post, hope to see you at Binegar on the 12th! Thanks, Will :)

Who are the Somerset and Wiltshire Land Rover Club:

 Established many years ago the Somerset and Wiltshire Land Rover Club is a way for enthusiasts to meet on a monthly basis and use their beloved vehicles for the purpose they were designed and built!

 We run competitions every second Sunday of the month and all are welcome - either as spectators or participants. We are an ALRC affiliated club, therefore must comply with all of their regulations.

 The competitions are divided into two categories - RTV & CCV. RTV is designed for all Road Taxed Vehicles and is essentially a non-damaging drive over a tough and challenging course, pitted against similar vehicles. The CCV or Cross-Country Vehicle class is much more challenging and may cause damage, the vehicles which take part in this are invariably specialised and the drivers are invariably a bit... well...

For more information please visit the About Us page, and

 PLEASE check the guidance page before turning up expecting to trial for the first time.


For those on Facebook, SWLRC have both a group and a page.
