Muddy Bottom is a club run by off-road enthusiasts to improve off-road skills / recovery skills all in a natural environment. We are a family orientated club incorporating some extreme off-roading for the more adventurous nutter !!!! All of our marshals / staff are extremely friendly and helpful should you have any questions regarding any aspect of off-roading.
Muddy Bottom is extremely fortunate to be located within the 'Minstead Manor' Estate. Located just off Junction 1 of M27, the site comprises of all aspects of off-roading from bomb hole wood, crossings, clay holes, steep hills, bog areas & axle twisting obstacles. Upon entering you will find toilet facilities to your left, along with spectator parking and kiosk on the right. On your left will be the catering trailer and picnic area so families with young children can sit under the trees, and have a bite to eat. This are is cordoned off to make it safer for the children to play.
Over the past few months, we have taken a great deal of time to create new areas and have individually marked each obstacle/area. The main reason for this is to make it easier for the marshals to assist in recoveries when called upon. PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE ANY OF THESE MARKERS, THEY ARE THERE FOR A REASON AND NOT TO BE TAKEN AWAY. Please do not drive through any bunting, this is placed for a reason, also at no time should anybody drive through the boundary fencing / stock fencing.
