What was impressive was the RR pulling out the car AND the
4wd truck...

Track is used loosely here - cow pasture is more like it.

Clarification - at least one of every type went off and got stuck,
including a couple of Rally 5ktqs.  I drove so cautiously
(especially on my 2nd and last run) that going off was never a
possibility :)

The CQ with Dunlop Graspics performed flawlessly though - traction
was never an issue.  Interestingly, I had to stop on the way up
to dig out a fellow with the same car, sporting 16" PZeros (and
worn, at that!) who tried to turn around on the side of the
road.  It took two people pushing and a large shovel to get
him out.

Great track for a beater car but not for a "nice" car.
No way.
