New Members Welcome. Join us today

HBLRO was formed in 1983 by a group of Rover car owners. It developed over the years into a predominantly Land Rover orientated off-road club, and as its title suggests, the main catchment areas are Hampshire and Berkshire, but members are welcome from anywhere.

RTV Trials COMPETITIVE EVENTS of various kinds are run as often as possible. These are RTV trials. RTV stands for Road Taxed Vehicle, and trials using these vehicles are among the cheapest forms of motor-sport available, as you can take part using a standard road-legal vehicle. Tyro Trials, similar to RTV trials but catering for novice and factory fresh vehicles. Cross Country Vehicle Trails CCVs, for the hardened competitor The courses for the TRIALS consist of a series of "gates" defined by pairs of canes stuck in the ground to define the route. Drivers attempt to steer their vehicle through the gates without stopping or hitting any canes. It sounds easy but the ground can be bumpy, hilly, muddy or even partially flooded. For more information on trials events. See Events Explained

For competition information contact the HBLRO Competition Secretary


Green Laning GREEN LANE TRIPS are run to various parts of Hampshire, Berkshire and surrounding counties. For the un-initiated green lanes are un-surfaced country roads and tracks that are legal to drive on but which often do not appear on normal maps. The Club has a dedicated Rights of way officer dealing with planning trips and leasing with local authorities.

For green lane information contact the HBLRO Rights of Way Officer

DRIVING DAYS. The Club offers open drive round events where Club members can test their vehicles to their true potential. Our events are pretty relaxed, but assistance is never very far away if it's required for recovery or tuition.


SOCIAL EVENTS. We have camping/caravanning weekends with BBQ’s with the club gazebo/marquee. Some of these are when club members take part in national trialling competitions or Land Rover shows around the UK. We sometimes also arrange other activities such as clay pigeon shooting and paint-balling.
