West Country Advanced Winter Driving.

A bit of black ice is no problem to a West Country driver.

LOL - why oh why did they jump out!!! - aren't people odd - we've seen some extraordinary driving over the last few days - to fast, breaking too hard followed with an oops and a long slide.

As with a large number of you - really chuffed with both the Defender and Freelander - had to take very bad back roads yesterday due to an accident on the M23 - end up at the top of a very steep hill - low range and diff lock - and the bestie just plodded down - fantastic vehicles

It's part of the Westcountry Highway Code. When the sh*t hits the fan, bail out.

I suppose it was an instinctive reaction. The Fiasco was gathering quite a bit of speed when it went around the corner. Who knows what it was heading for.
