Hils Everitt – Editor at Large
As you will have read in last month’s issue, we recently tagged along with the Mitsubishi L200 Owners’ Club for a day of off-roading in the picturesque surroundings of Hawkestone Park Follies in Shropshire.
The L200 OC holds its AGM over a weekend at a site that can offer good camping and plenty of 4×4 fun for its members who own a wide range of L200s. I thought that our squeaky clean and shiny new Warrior model would stick out like a sore thumb among the heavily modded, knarly old trucks, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. There were a couple of other youngsters there, one with a novice off-roader behind the wheel who thought his truck was ‘awesome’ off the road and had a ball, blasting his way around the site, tackling some extremely difficult hillclimbs.
Even without any mods such as suspension lifts and heavy-duty rubberwear, the L200, of whatever persuasion, is a handy off-roader. What we really like about the truck is Mitsubishi’s immense Super Select 4×4 system, which give you three modes, 4H, 4HLc and the exceptional 4LLc.
