Spondon & District Off Road Club is a Derbyshire based 4×4 club, with members from across the Midlands region. Our members participate in Treasure Hunt and Gymkhana type off-road events in a relaxed, family friendly  but marshal controlled environment. We have various types of cane trial sections at our events, with other non-competitive sections for new members and novice drivers to try. We try to cater for all types of 4 wheel drive vehicles (sorry, no quad bikes). Road legal and trailered vehicles are welcome at our events, but all vehicles must meet minimum scrutineering requirements (no scrap yard specials!). Under 14’s are also allowed to drive when accompanied by an over 18 full licence holder, subject to signed parental consent.

We encourage 4×4 owners to utilise the full potential of their own vehicle, ensuring maximum adventure and fun. We hold regular offroading days/weekends ( at various sites around the Midlands area, with one or two trips further afield throughout the year.

If you’re an experienced off roader who doesn’t want the expense and competition of full blown challenge events, or a complete novice who is looking to pick someone’s brains about why something broke or how to fix it, why not give us a try? Take a look around our site, our FAQ’s section should answer all your questions, but if you need any further information, or want to join our club, please contact our Club Secretary Trevor Harrison, using the contact form, or call mobile 07976 586812 (no calls after 9pm please!),  who will be pleased to help you.


For a great dirty weekend, Spondon Off Road, your local 4×4 club!

A superb weekend in the entire bottom wooded area only,( no paintballing taking place!). Sorry,  we will not have any access to top woods as this is now used for corporate driver training.






 Drivers of vehicles without screens are required to wear eye protection. 


ALSO as is normal hotel policy, ALL vehicles for site use and all trailers are to be kept on the car park next to the camping area. ALL site use vehicles are NOT to enter the camping area AT ANY TIME during the day, this keeps the nice clean campsite area clear of mud! NO EXCEPTIONS.Please ensure you have adequate locks, chains and wheelclamps. Although we have never had anything stolen, there is always a first time!

Those camping will have full use of the hotel facilities; swimming pool & sauna showers, restaurant, bars, and nightclub (an additional fee is payable to enter the nightclub if you are camping).


To view the hotel or to enquire about staying in the hotel itself, see .Those attending will pay all driving and camping money to Club Secretary Trevor Harrison, who will then pay for the entire weekend.

Anyone wishing to go to the hotel and camp a few days before is welcome to. Please notify Trevor if you will be going earlier in order that he can advise the hotel staff of camping numbers.

OOOOOOOOOk due to Australia emigration.
With much regret I am selling my RRC Offroader.
This RRC has been my hobby since 2006. Extremely capable off road, I’ve had great times in it.

On the RRC:

3.9 V8 with ZF auto
Lifted by 3″
QT Weekender suspension kit, Front and Rear.
Rear +5″ Shocks
NO sagging headlining, fixed by me with fresh material
Megajolt with EDIS 8 all working.
Milemarker Hydraulic Winch, with winch bumper and steering guard. all working
BishBuilt Galvanised shortened tree/rock sliders
Extended Arches
Boost alloys
Rear tube Bumper

Other Gear:

4 x RRC doors same colour in good condition
Box of assorted RRC rear lights
Electric winch unknown condition 9000lbs (came with front bumper)
2 x Recovery ropes
2 x Front Pro comp 15″ travel brand new to be fitted.
Snorkel and fitted airbox
2 x Power steering boxes
1 x ZF transfer box with slipping chain.
1 x innner wing for passenger side.

Bad Bits:

RR has no MOT at the moment, and I don’t intend to get one.
Power steering box leaks
Power steering box needs new droparm or ball joint
As you can see by the pics, used offroad, and looks like it, this is not a concours car.

Looking for £1200 Call me on 07899897512
