Yep, great day. Got lots of photos and should have videos too from the dash cam. Will post when I get round to it. For now, all I can say is Auto Terrain Response (TR2) is superb and this ATPC thing is one hell of a tool Bow down May be there are still some uses left for HDC but it seems ATPC has made it obsolete. Made everything so easy it almost got boring towards the end as I wasn't controlling anything other than the steering wheel and the cruise buttons on it most of the time.

Once the car is cleaned, will take a close look to find the million "hedge signatures" it must have received during the day Big Cry Current: MY16 RRS2 3.0 SDV6 Autobiography Dynamic, Carpathian Grey & Santorini Black Sliding Pano/Ebony & Ivory 2 Tone

Is it similar to the following? I'm going onto a one day LR experience course, two of us, (next month), but you use their car, the same model etc as your own, then spend day, one hour training, (meal etc included) out and about one of their own courses. I've picked the one up in Yorkshire, you experience driving along and up/down Gradients/Water driving/sand/rubble/rocks/muddy drive through forest tracks (they water) etc. Looks a grand day out, and no damage to my own car. Can't be bad. A one off 650 gift, couldn't afford that to often. Whistle Wink John

Looking at my car as of yesterday, so clean inside out, it is hard to believe what it was up to a day ago. Even the scratches it picked up on the bodywork and plastics all hand polished out. The only remaining evidence: a few scratches on the alloys but the kerb marks from before on 2 of the wheels are far more visible and divert all the attention anyway. Been too lazy to make use of my alloy insurance to get those repaired so I don't think I will be rushing to get these minor scratches out. Current: MY16 RRS2 3.0 SDV6 Autobiography Dynamic, Carpathian Grey & Santorini Black Sliding Pano/Ebony & Ivory 2 Tone

2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

Guys, it is so good to see others not scared to take their pride and joy off into the slightly rough stuff, such a pity that so many Land Rover products end up being supermarket carpark queens or having the living day lights polished out of them, when they are so capable away from the supermarket carpark............

Last Sunday I was off-roading in the hills along the south side of Loch Tay with a mixture of every kind of Land Rover from a very early Series2 and numerous Defender/Land Rover 90/110s through ancient Discos, Freelander1's (several of them), a G4 Disco3 and a Disco 4 to several L322 FFRR's to the most expensive car of the day - a 16 Plate Defender 90 Autobiography (yes one of the only 60 run out specials made) ............... 28 cars in all. All they got in the way of damage was very sunburned and a lot of dust, but everyone had a brilliant drive and several learned how to use their TR for what it was meant to do in a very boggy quarry that gave them mud and ruts through a big sand patch to a rock crawl. I'm ashamed to say that my RRS2 was left at home on the drive and I took the Defender but with hindsight the RRS would have been a far more comfortable car in the heat Embarassed

Agreed Tim. Whole day off-roading in a comfortable cabin riding on air suspension didn't tire me one bit. Kids had a little nap in the rear seats in the afternoon which wouldn't have been possible if they were being thrown about in, say, a Defender. The thought of driving back to NW London the same day wasn't stressful either. On top of that, TR2 and ATPC made the whole thing a piece of cake! Having said that, I would like to do this in a low-tech 4x4 to learn some skills. I did my LRE in Eastnor in a Defender in Jan/Feb and it was quite fun too. Current: MY16 RRS2 3.0 SDV6 Autobiography Dynamic, Carpathian Grey & Santorini Black Sliding Pano/Ebony & Ivory 2 Tone

Great pics, thanks for sharing. Bow down

I'm looking forward to giving mine a good work out at the Land Rover party in October via the Pyreness, but hopefully DRRob will dig his Sailsbury Plain maps out so we can have a play over there soon Whistle Thumbs Up 2003 BMW M5 - 5 Litres of V8 Optimax Slurping Goodness in Carbon Black

LR have their experience days on their course in North Yorkshire, you can do the various runs/courses with your own car,
or have the half or whole day experience with their cars, generally have similar model to what you own, just newer. Wink John

Compiled a video of some sections:

Please ignore the incorrect date/time in most of the video. This is due to me swapping the SD Card but the camera not automatically syncing date & time despite being in satellite range.

Double speed time lapse version here if 12'45" is too much. Current: MY16 RRS2 3.0 SDV6 Autobiography Dynamic, Carpathian Grey & Santorini Black Sliding Pano/Ebony & Ivory 2 Tone

Great video, goes to show that you don't have to get your car covered in mud or drive through gorse bushes to have a great day out on the lanes, just wish we had the access to tracks up here that you have down south as there are no public rights of way in Scotland and you must have the land owner's permission to take a vehicle onto it............ Big Cry Hence why we tend to do green laning with a club which can cause a problem with numbers of vehicles.... The run I did last Sunday at Killin was behind locked gates, with a written permit from the land owner but there were 28 Land Rovers......... That really upsets walkers who have right to roam, especially if the weather has been dry for a few days and the tracks get dusty. What it does do though is ensure that the tear away element don't misbehave as they know that only 1 complaint will get the club banned by the land owner. 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.

So true Tim, all it takes are a few irresponsible idiots during of piste to get the antis up in arms. Unfortunately it seems to be happening more and more. Even LRE are not spared from revved up ramblers as they'd had problems on one of the Devon treks. It was very dry and dusty when we where out and there where a few ramblers looking a little grey and coughing and spluttering by the time we'd all driven past... 2008 G4 RRSport TDV8
