There is another special event happening in Chilliwack on the same day as Founders Days. Any Series owners wanna take part and herald the old days of Land Rovers as a farming tractor?

Does anyone know what time the indoor driving course will be run?

I will be there in my 2004 G4 Disco for a bit...

Thanks,
Orion

Hi Orion,

The plan is to have the obstacle course open to run at 1pm-2pm then again at 3pm-4pm and finally 6-7pm.
If there is demand, we can extend the times, we will see how it goes.

Cheers,
Andy

That was fun! Great to meet some of the people and see some of the trucks in person. Thanks all for the organizing effort!
