There are almost no places that specialized earth-ripping vehicles cannot negotiate, and it appears that for their manufacturers (just view their ads), promoters and drivers, no more fun can be had than in tearing up living ecosystems.

If motorheads want to "enjoy nature" by tearing it up, let them do it in their own backyards.
