CCROC was formed in September 1989 and is still going strong. It's a club for Land Rover owners & enthusiasts to meet and enjoy their vehicles in on and off-road competitive and social events within the club or with other like-minded clubs and groups. We welcome new members young and old, and from all walks of life to join the club with their families. There is no specific catchment area so we welcome members from anywhere. Currently we are centred around Cheltenham and Gloucester but we have members who come from a wide area rouughly bordered by the Swindon Bristol and Worcester triangle.
If you have any Series, Defender, DIscovery, Range Rover or Freelander then this a club you should be considering, so why not come along to one of our events and see what we're about. If you have never driven off-road before then come and experience the fun but be warned it's very addictive and one Land Rover often leads to several! If you like what you see, sign up, get involved, and particpate in any of these events:
Monthly RTV, CCV and TYRO trials - usually the third Sunday of every month
Inter Club trials - National Events etc
Greenlaning - Second Sunday of the month (conditions permitting)
Monthly social events - various pub locations to cover our wide area
Annual camping fun/trials weekend - various activities in June
British Army Motorsports Asscciation - day and night navigation/orienteering events
Annual Christmas dinner - with charity auction & raffle

Our RTV and TYRO trials are regulated by our association to the ALRC and MSA governing bodies.
TYRO is the easiest class aimed at anyone aged 13 and over, male or female, with any age of Land Rover, Discovery, Range Rover, Freelander and commercial/military variants from 1948 onward. This is a non-damaging class if set up and driven sensibly, so damage is extremely rare. This is recommended for new comers and those with newer or vehicles which the owner is more particular about maintaining it's good condition. Having said that your vehicle will get dirty in TYRO if conditions permit!
RTV trials have the same rules as TYRO but the terrain is more challenging and wth slightly more risk involved. This is recommended for more experienced off road drivers using vehicles which are generally older and not in showroom condition - but the choice is ultimately yours if you wish to trial a new car.
CCV vehicles must conform to ALRC regs and these trials are run in paralel with RTV trails but with more severe sections.
For both RTV and TYRO classes your vehicle must be road legal, having Tax and MOT, and passing a routine scrutineering at each trial. That said there are some modifications which are deemed illegal by the governing bodies (ALRC & MSA). If your vehicle bodywork has been altered in anyway, or you have any non-standard parts fitted (pattern parts are okay and some suspension mods) please list those items via email so we can verify whether your vehicle is legal for trialling. Illegal mods can invalidate our clubs off road insurance, it may not be fair but for now the club must adhere to the MSA/ALRC rules. There is one LEGAL modification that beats all the other mods hands down - a good set of standard size all terrain or mud tyres.
We pride ourselves on high levels of safety and insist that all vehicles carry a first aid kit, fire extinguisher, a "Hi Viz" vest or jacket, and have recovery points fitted front and back. These rules may be relaxed for first timers.
FULL membership is £25 a year - this gets you an MSA club membership card. The membership card enables you to drive in any other ALRC club events and trials too.
FAMILY membership is £10 a year - for drivers who live with a FULL member (eg: spouse/children). FAMILY members also pay £20 to drive in each trial but can opt to be a passenger instead.
