Off-road driver training
Three NEWSAR team members have qualified as off-road drivers over the weekend at a regional off-road driver training event. Some superb weather for it!
There were attendees from North East Wales Search & Rescue and Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation.
Despite a drivers best efforts and skill, when climbing a steep slope there is always a possibility that the vehicle may stall or "spin out". On a steep slope it requires skill and practice to control the reverse back down hill.
