There must be more to this story... for the wheels to be free-spinning like that, the Rover must be (a) completely bottomed out, possibly indicating a problem with its ride height control, and/or (b) suffering a complete traction control failure.
Those things shouldnt fail, of course, but if the Rover bottomed out, so too would have the VW if it had taken the same line.
Really this shows that successful off-roading is still at least 40% skill, 40% experience, 5% luck, and 15% what you’re driving...
