Hiya! Just waiting on Riccy but we're up to four now. If we can get you and one other then we've got six. Any takers? As per previous I need reg/name/phone/home address to my email so I can do the permit. Hoping to do it tomorrow.

Cheers!

Dan

Stile end is superb, tight, technical and twisty with some tasty views from the top. I will be heading south after this as Im on with Hawkstone punch hunt on the Sunday (trying to steal Brett's title) but I can happily point everyone in the direction of some more lanes for after stile end if your wanting to make a day of it...

Anyone else interested in joining this trip? There is one group of 4 confirmed but we can make another group if there are 1, 2 or 3 others that want to go?

Let me know if you are interested and I will try and get another permit for the 11th.

Thanks,

Gav

Having watched through last years landrover run, the main obstacles seem to be some loose surfaces and tight hairpin turns, so I think a standard Jimny should be fine. Mine is standard apart from some A/T tyres so I hope that’s true!

A standard Jimny on AT tyres is a very capable 4x4. I doubt that the cars abilities will be the limiting factor......

When I was first out in my car with just AT's and tired old suspension, it could do far more than I dare risk my road car on and that was in a 3k banger..

The new Jimny has got some gizmo's that make it much more capable in standard trim, on paper anyway....

I'm sure your discretion will stop you before the car will.

I hope you get your second party together and make the day, we'll have to see if the second party could meet the first for a few pictures and a brew. Maybe follow Riccy's route at a respectable distance...

If any of you are looking to do this with bigger tyres and a standard transfer box, make sure your clutch is in tip top condition and you have a winch.

Some of the climbs are very steep with large rocks to get over and standard gearing in an old Jimny with bigger tyres us too high to cope.

Ive got a good selection of towing gear/strops/shackles, a huge winch, waffle boards, airline, etc, etc.

Plus clutch is ok, 1.6 engine, rocklobster box, HD everything and twin lockers to turn them 32" tyres anywhere I want to go :laugh:

Doubt any of that will be needed from what ive seen of the newest jimnys abilities ;-)

Route mostly plotted. Not a single scratchy lane to be had in there.
Bear in mind we need to agree a start/meet point/time and I need to be hitting the M6 by mid afternoon to head south for Hawkstone park punch-hunt on Sunday. This may mean I need to show someone the route and leave you to get on with it, so hopefully someone has maps or mapping software?

I have digital maps (os explorer 1:25k). I can’t get on the Gatescarth leg but could meet at the end for the others.

Should be a good day out, I'm curious to see how the new Jimny gets on in standard form.

More than happy to do a few more lanes after Gatescarth, but I imagine it's going to be a (very) steady run over Gatescarth for Dan to get a load of pictures for his review/article that he was writing for a magazine/website? I might be wrong, but I'm expecting Gatescarth to take a fair bit longer than it normally would.

You'll have no problems but I was thinking of people who might be going who don't have a Rocklobster.

I think lockers are banned on Gatescarth, so keep quiet about them when going up and don't use them.
