The Isle of Man Four Wheel Drive Club was host to visitors from across the Irish Sea keen to enjoy the Manx countryside and extensive off-road network.
Around 10 members of the Red Rose Land Rover Club visited the island for a long weekend of green laning.
The Four Wheel Drive Club’s chairman, Richard Crane, said the group had stayed in one of the seafront hotels in Douglas and a number of members of the group had simply enjoyed the various tourist attractions around the island.
‘The trip was blessed with sunshine for most of the time and about 10 Land Rovers were accompanied on two full days of laning all over the island including restricted use of the upland greenway roads, courtesy of Highways,’ Mr Crane said.
‘In total nearly 30 lanes were driven, about half of what the Island has to offer and it included the first drive up the recently opened Mount Karrin Greenway.
‘As expected, seeing the island at its best in the sunshine from places most don’t get to see was a real treat for all, especially from the Surby Carnanes Greenway looking over the Calf and south of the island.’
Dean Spencer from the Red Rose Club thanked everyone for their welcome and added: ‘Thank-you again from me and our club for hosting a fab weekend and yes we will be returning as soon as possible too.’
The club has a close connection with the island as its founder’s wife has relatives here.
