Freelander 2's At Binegar Quarry, Somerset

Hi everyone Smile .

I know this forum leans more towards road going Freelander 2's, but hopefully one or two of you enjoy seeing a Freelander 2 used mildly for some medium off road use. Very Happy

Another year had rolled around and another great Freelander 2 Off Road Group annual meetup was had. What had been a very wet and windy April, we got very lucky with a nice sunny and calm day in the old quarry. It never fails to amaze me how capable these cars are when you head off road! I once saw a sticker on a car that said, "remember stupid, you've got to drive this home." So between Alana and I, we kept it fairly mild with what we got up to seeing as it was over a 3 hour drive each way. Very Happy

We took the GoPro along with us and captured a few of the antics throughout the day. Smile



Oh, and if you want to know what happens to a Freelander 2 when you drive it down a rather steep hill, Alana gave it a go. Laughing

Here's a few pictures from the day.

Why have 4 wheels when you can just use 3? Very Happy

It's amazing how effortless the Freelander 2 makes going up hills.

If anyone fancies taking their Freelander 2 off road then I can highly recommend the Bineger Quarry site run by 4x4 days. Mike and Adrian are fantastic guys and are always on hand if you ever need any advice while you're there. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/4x4-days-33145881311

There are a couple more videos to come and I'll update this thread when they are available to watch. Smile https://www.youtube.com/@scottandalana4x4

The first video showed what things look like from the outside. Here's a video to show what it's like from the inside. Smile

Good to see Bear tyres, better than my Poodle tyres!

P.S. In other words 17" vs 18" At least I don't have Extra Poodle, or worse, F…… Poodle tyres!

P.P.S. Did you air down the tyres for better traction? Procrastination, mankind's greatest labour saving device!

Nope. It's something I quite enjoy about the Falken Wildpeaks. Pump them up to 36 psi and leave them there no matter if we are doing many miles on road or having fun offroad. Plus, the terrain response system on these Freelander 2's does an amazing job of limiting the amount of wheelslip if we do get any. Smile https://www.youtube.com/@scottandalana4x4

Currently with our so called winter temperatures. As per my TPMS my Pirelli AT tyres are at 27psi (might drop to 24psi. Potholes are out of hand).

We have survived Sydney's potholed goat tracks. My brother in-law with rubber band tyres has destroyed 2 tyres & thus destroyed 2 rims. Almost makes a tyre look cheap!

P.S. Would have upgraded to 17" non Poodle, but the price down under was out or hand for 6 rims. Cost AU$800 for the sixth rim (second spare) I bought for the outback. You need to carry 2 spares, plugs & compressor/s (I have 3 ARB compressors in parallel, up to 90 amps, 28 seconds 20 to 35 PSI per tyre). Procrastination, mankind's greatest labour saving device!
