To be fair that should read - Range Rover beaten by its driver
mud is difficult in any 4x4 - and I would guess he had road tyres on...
don't want to be too supportive - after all they break down as soon as you touch anything electronic
, however they are extremely competent if driven properly and with proper rubber on them - I have owned three, my LWB classic walked all over a defender when we did our BORDA course together, the P38A I now have has done some incredible things in snow and water including towing 5 1/2 tonnes of laden truck up a steep snowy hill... on standard road tyres, the classic pulled a stuck L200 & trailer & 18ft motor boat out of the sand a couple of years ago but then I did make sure that I was on solid ground
it is all in how you drive them!
