cover me in sunshine…

HOW much of a difference does sunshine make to our general level of happiness and wellbeing? Loads I like to think. I hope that those reading this have managed to see loved ones or done things to and in your Land Rovers that were not allowed during previous lockdowns. Some of you might be reading this in the sunshine at the Billing Off Road Show. Something that until very recently seemed a lifetime away. Please do come to the LRM stand and say hello. Then if you head over to the Douglas Motors stand you will see Sam Bates’ bright red Defender 90 that features on our cover. I love Sam’s story and he is our stereotypical reader and follower. He has a dog called Arnie (and a fiancé called Alice),…

davanti brings edd cobley to billing off road show

AFTER two years of being absent from the show circuit Davanti Tyres is coming back with a bang, as it brings off-road rally ace Edd Cobley and its expanded Terratoura A/T range to the Billing Off Road Show. Moreover, to celebrate the expansion of its all-terrain offering, the British tyre brand will be offering fantastic prizes, including sets of Terratoura A/T tyres for those visitors who are able to closest guess how fast Edd will complete a hot lap of the off-road course. They’ll even fit the tyres for you. Davanti is also teaming up with Land Rover Monthly to enter new subscribers to its newsletter over the summer into a draw to win prizes that include an advanced off-road driving experience with Edd. “Tyres, particularly all-terrain tyres, are a tactile product,”…

the hills are alive

THE massive Malvern show grounds were the venue for the first Land Rover event of the show season, the Malvern 4x4, Land Rover & Vintage Spares. For only £30 anyone and everyone could get a stand to sell anything they wanted to. Some traders who were coming from far away arrived on the Saturday evening before the event while most came early on the Sunday before the 09.30 am opening of the gates. I am happy to report that there was a very long line of eager people waiting to get into the gates. Those that registered for the special Land Rover VIP parking were able to sneak in a few minutes earlier. Definitely worth keeping in mind for future similar events. There was a great turnout of stalls with about 200…

Enthusiasts buy new Land rovers too ENTHUSIASTS buy new Land Rovers too! IT WAS interesting to read the contribution in the June issue of LRM from Dave Phillips, with his nostalgic reflection on the attraction of older vehicles and their simplicity, and Gary Pusey’s analysis of JLR’s strategy, aimed firmly at the luxury market with ever more elaborate and expensive vehicles. It made me wonder if it is now appropriate and timely for LRM to cater purely for the enthusiast and Land Rovers up to about 2015, leaving JLR’s esoteric and increasingly unaffordable models, with six-figure price tags, to the mainstream motor magazines. After all, it could be argued that there may be little to differentiate the ownership ethos of a Mercedes S class or an Audi e-tron GT quattro from a fully…
