a very cold start to July with Mullets Mud Run on the 2nd having a frost first thing. It was a challenging but drivable day with 8 trucks competing, although one was a trials truck so first place was a give in providing he didnt break down.
The course consisted of 7 different challenges having been basically set out the week before. A contestant still managed to drive part of it the wrong way even though he had been part of the setup crew!!!
Andy drove the swamp goat like a Harley leaning it over onto its side going around a corner, needless to say he didnt make it.
Chris had some issues with a wire caught on his tow bar causing his right front shocky to break free and the spring to fall out. Luckly his pit crew was able to repair it and he was able to carry on.
The day was won by 1st Guesty, 2nd Gary and 3rd Patch.
Next run at our place on the 6th of August “Escape the Winter Blues and come play in the MUD” see upcoming events for details.
Good to see some new trucks coming into the club, will be exciting to see how they perform in the mud…
Remember we need more stuff for the newsletter. Reports on runs, they don’t have to be long or fancy. And photos, there always seem to be a camera or phone recording things when you don’t want them too. So lets see some of the good and not so good driving and vehicles.
Someone once said “Money cant buy you happiness” That guy obviously never owned a 4×4
