ACO 4x4 Construction Challenge Rockingham rolling

NCEevents ACO 4x4 Construction Challenge

Who toughed it out in the mud of Rockingham Castle?

Not Antony Oliver, who was an enthusiastic observer.

ROCKINGHAM CASTLE near Leicester played host to the Midlands heat of the ACO 4x4 Construction Challenge last week and saw 15 teams compete with passion, enthusiasm and skill in damp and slippery autumn conditions.

The Muddy Funsters team from Mace came out on top followed closely by the Kier Commandos.

Rockingham was the seventh of eight qualifying stages in the 4x4 Construction Challenge. Each heat has been held at one of Land Rover's new Experience Centres across the UK.

This week the event moves to Loseley Park near Guildford in Surrey where 15 teams will again compete across twelve challenges ranging from driving, navigation and trailer reversing to mountain biking, bridge building and shooting.

Eight heat winners plus two additional winners drawn from the parallel online Construction Knowledge Challenge will meet at the final on 8 November which will be held over two days at Land Rover's Gaydon test facility near Birmingham. At stake is the chance to win three Land Rover Adventure holidays.
