Four Seasons Cup

Calling all Freelander clubs and owners: a new series of challenge weekends announced by off-road enthusiasts

A number of brand new ‘Four Seasons’ events for Land Rover Freelander owners will be taking place across the UK during 2019, with the emphasis on fund-raising and fun. The events are the brainchild of a team that includes Mick Gillett, Mark Allard, Richard Hopkins, Chris Ratter, Selwyn Kendrick and Edward Bowen-Jones.

Each event will take place over a weekend, and will consist of: 
• a comp safari (timed single venue cross country stage rally) 
• a treasure hunt
• an auto test

The team say each event will guarantee a great venue and a fantastic opportunity for Freelander drivers to test their skills and experience across a variety of disciplines and in all sorts of driving conditions. “First and foremost we will be creating an environment where everyone is welcome, and where there is a great opportunity to learn skills such as vehicle control, driving techniques, navigation and teamwork,” says Selwyn Kendrick.

”Added to this is the fun element, as well as a little bit of competitive spirit that guarantees a memorable weekend.”

The Four Seasons events are planned during 2019; two in mid Wales, one in south-east England and another in southern Scotland.

The first of the four events takes place on the weekend of 9 and 10 March in Clyro, where the very first hill rally stage took place in 1992.

Most of the team are no strangers to fund-raising events, having committed a significant amount of their time to volunteering for a number of cancer charities over the past two decades.

In 2018, Selwyn Kendrick won a regional Macmillan Sir Hugh Dundas Award, which recognises volunteers who go above and beyond all other criteria to make an outstanding contribution to the charity’s fundraising.
