The Mud Life Issue 4 May 2019

Turner’s Torque

Hi everyone!

Welcome to a another issue of The Mud Life magazine this time with 118 pages, we’re getting bigger each month!

So what’s been happening at Muddy Towers? Well after the hustle and bustle of January and February, March and April have been quite calm in comparison. I say ‘calm’, I was invited, along with peers from the Northern Group of Motoring Writers, to Peckforton Castle as guests of Land Rover for the launch of their new Evoque.

We had a great time, especially as they threw in a tour of the Evoque production line at Halewood, which was very interesting.

Then there was an invite from BMW to attend the UK launch of their new flagship X7 up in Edinburgh – which again was fun. You can read about the new X7 in the next issue.

On the subject of quiet, for the first weeks of March we had both the new Jimny and the new Kia Sportage on loan, and that’s been it on the press car front. There’s good reason for that, and that’s because I like give myself time to catch up on writing all the reviews, but I also enjoy driving Deux Smurf.

After posting a few photos of both the Jimny and Sportage last month on a 4×4 Facebook page, a friend asked me, “after all the press cars I get sent, do I always enjoy jumping back into Deux Smurf?”

“Absolutely!” was my reply. Though saying goodbye to the V8 Mustang was a real struggle I have to admit! Even though Deux Smurf is 23 years old, she looks and drives like a 4×4 half her age and she’s incredibly capable both on and off road and an absolute joy to drive.

Hope you enjoy this issue of The Mud Life magazine, and don’t forget to subscribe!
