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.

To all members,
As several sites have recently closed,we are looking the increase the sites we currently use by introducing new ones. Many thanks to club member Andy Fearnley whorecently drove to see the site owner of Padley Wood to get contact details for me. I have to arrange a meeting in the next couple of weeks to take over our insurance documents and then book some dates for next year. Once again thanks Andy.
If any other members use sites with other clubs that we do not currently use, please get in touch and we can discuss it, I need to have contact details for site owners, and some other club secretarys , not all it must be said, are not forthcoming with that kind of information, although I don’t understand why!?!?
Please get in touch with site info if you have it or can get it!
Many thanks, and see you at Holymoorside on December 11th!
