Run by CML Distribution in conjunction with Pro-Line, this event started out life at the now world famous Harper Adams facility in 2006; Jon Hazlewood taking the victory in front of David Crompton, in 2007 the 2nd annual Pro-Line challenge drew a large international entry and the final came down to an epic battle between American Scott Hughes and young German Jorn Neumann – then driving Gerd Strenge’s very hybrid Durango buggy. With the Neo race moving to easter for 2008, the Pro-Line went south and outdoors – settling at its current home – the remote world track in Slough. Being next to London’s Heathrow airport meant it was delightfully convenient for international entrants as Ryan Maifield, Jared Tebo, Richard Saxton and AE team manager Brent Thielke flew in, Maifield won buggy and Swede Linus Thern took 1/8 truck. In the last two years international entries have dropped a bit, a small mystery as its one of the great fixtures on the annual 1/8 Offroad calendar – perhaps one of the best kept secrets… The ‘Bloomfield years’ kicked off in 2009 as young Darren established himself as the ‘King of Slough’ and his unbeatability (yes really!) continued into 2010. 2012 ushered in change, most of all the venue as the 2012 London Olympics forced the hand and saw the event move from its traditional Slough home to Herts – backyard of Elliott Boots, despite a cameo appearance from Ryan Cavalieri, Boots was untouchable at the 2012 Pro-Line.
