Held at Herefordshire's Eastnor Castle, in the Deer Park, on 24th and 25th August, a 65th Anniversary Defender 90 LXV will also be shown, and amply demonstrates the enduring popularity of this much-loved model down the decades.
They will be joined by the Polished Defender, the big-wheeled Forest Rover and a replica of the 'Centre Steer' prototype from the Dunsfold Collection. Small-scale Land Rovers will also be on-hand for youngsters to test their skills around an obstacle course.
Two off-road courses, offering varying degrees of ruggedness, are available: there's the Scenic Self-Drive, which tours the Eastnor Estate and, for the less experienced, has the advantage of being in guided convoy form. It's designed for any Land Rover model, from an Evoque right back to the earliest Series models. Land Rover Experience instructors will be providing commentary, explaining the route taken and what you'll be seeing on the tour. They will help you to get the very most out of your vehicle and make sure that your day creates treasured memories for you both.
The Eastnor Adventure Self-Drive offers a more challenging course for owners and vehicles. Using the historic tracks of the Eastnor Castle Estate, the route is tougher and is more suitable for Defender and Discovery models and those drivers who are not as concerned about the odd Eastnor 'stripe' on their paint work. Expect a greater chance of getting stuck, but tow ropes and rescue Land Rovers will be to hand for any extraction jobs. It's a chance to experience Land Rover in its purest form and see how far you and your vehicle can get!
Each off road session costs £55 per vehicle on either route payable in advance direct to Land Rover Experience Eastnor. Contact Land Rover Experience Eastnor's reception on 01531 638779 for more information and bookings.
