Come with what you like Mogman!!! You try and fuel that baby for 8 hours around a stubble field!!!
Plus it's going to get sold or scrapped, that's the rules!

What you entering Daz?

I know where there's a fine example of that horrid Hymac backhoe, I wonder if an old ford Cargo engine would slide in!

Still think it could be done and what a laugh to get some big industry names out there against the likes of us and a few like minded mates.

If you actually thought about it half serious, a team of around six drivers could pick up an old 3c and get her to the event for not stupid money with a bit of sponsoring and blagging.
It would without doubt make the press and probably local TV and raise a fair bit of cash in the bargain.
Got to be next September I reckon?

Eddie.

Whitlock eh Mogman! Don't stand a chance!!

I'm thinking light weight, but I'm also thinking Air Seat and Four point harness, it'll be rough out there!

I propose do it for 'Help for Heroes' and what's more invite the lads themselves to enter a team or two.
The Royal Engineers should be able to muster a machine from somewhere and give it a go.

If they bring one of them new High Mobility 60 mph JCB jobs though, they're barred!!

We could hold it on a Tank Range, but throwing in some serious off roading would end in tears!!

Eddie.

Well Daz, very kind of you to turn up with a brand new Eco 60th.

With the Coffee maker in the cab and the reputation of that machine, I think we'd best put you down for doing the Refreshments!!!!!
