Going to Reading Festival this weekend?

There is rain forecast which probably won’t stop you having a great time, but may cause problems in the car park. Here are a few tips if your car gets stuck in a muddy field:

Try not to spin the wheels – pull away in second gear which helps traction (lower revs help prevent wheel spin)

Traction aid – cardboard placed in front of the driven wheels will help.

Keep moving – once moving, try not to stop.

Stay on the flat stuff – try to stay out of ruts made by other vehicles.

On tow – if you need a tow, check the towing eye for corrosion or weakness (it is often hidden behind a small plastic panel on the bumper).
