I have been fortunate so far and have coped with the bad weather using the limited slip facility on my motor although a landrover discovery couldn't cope with same hill, possibly due to its weight.

The problem at th moment for some is actually getting to the venue and back.

take wide alloy wheels off and get some thin 'rich tea bisquit' wheels so they bite through the snow/slush. if it's icy you can let a little pressure out of the wheels.. clutch control aswell....don't stamp the pedals through the floor lol :> you don't need a 4x4 if you have some leaves on your driveway
