West Wales 4x4 GroupWe were driving down the A40 when we saw some 4x4s on trailers, so we did a U-turn and followed to a farm in Tiers Cross.
It was a lovely, friendly event run by the West Wales 4x4 Group We would probably go more often if it wasn't 200 miles from home. We took thousands of pictures.
Black DefenderThe Black Defender was nicely prepared, powerful, manoeverable and the driver was skillful and brave, let down only by his repeated inability to drive through the correct gate.
Blue Range RoverThe Blue Range Rover retired early when it dropped a transmission shaft in the quarry.
Note the orientation of the tow-ball in this picture...
DiscoveryThe Discovery started off looking road legal. It finished looking a little worse for wear.

HomebuiltThis homebuilt 4x4 is based on a Suzuki chassis. Note the independant left/right handbrake levers. He clearly had a great time, despite being plagued by fuel pump problems.
MD SignsWe only have a couple of pictures of the Defender from MD signs. We guess it must have broken something important early on.
Red DefenderThe West Wales 4x4 group is a friendly place and we noticed that often, cars would change passengers on different stages. On the other hand, no-one was ever crazy enough to risk being a passenger in the Red Defender.
It would appear that 4x4 trialing is open to everyone. For example, this little red Suzuki bore a sticker proclaiming that it was on hire from MPH Tool and Plant Hire in nearby Haverfordwest.
SportrakYou don't need a V8 to join in. The plucky little Sportrak had as much fun as anyone else.
Suzuke BoySuzuki Boy would stop at nothing to get his vehicle round the course.
White Series 1This unassuming little Land Rover might look like something from Noddy and Toyland but it had a wonderful growl and packed a punch. The sticker on the rear window with the name "Drew Bowler" might be a clue.
Yellow RollcageThis was the car that brought us to the event. We spotted it on a trailer on the A40 and followed it all the way to the farm.
