tescos car park!! they will love it in there,by the way... i dont own it, the chap who does own it has lost interest so ive taken it on as a project to use whenever and also pocketmoney to get mechanically running!! better that way as i dont have the hassle of expenditure etc
he has a few ajoining fields and a dried up lake, so there should be plenty of mud to play in!!
ps the lake will fill in the winter, he he
