new defender d-day is nearly here...

January 29, 2016. The day Defender production ended at Solihull. Now over three and a half years later and we know for certain that the launch of the new Defender is closer than ever. How? Well the other day I opened my curtains and a camo version of the new Defender drove past. True story. They are bloody everywhere. The Duke of Richmond recently drove one up Goodwood Hill to officially open the Festival of Speed. Conservationists in Kenya were spotted using one in the Borana Conservancy. And most of you would’ve seen the recent footage of the Red Cross using one to blast up and down the dunes of Dubai (according to reports no dunes were harmed in the process). Then if you believe everything you see and read…

defender prototype pushed to the limits by red cross

WITH the new Defender not far off from its world premiere (register your interest at landrover.com/defender/index.html) stories of its prototypes being tested all over the world are rife. The latest one to emerge in the press is of it being put through its paces under the watchful eye of all-terrain experts from the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). The prototype vehicle visited the IFRC global fleet base in Dubai where it tackled the region’s rolling dunes and shrugged off steep ascents, demanding side slopes and blind crests. With temperatures in excess of 40 degrees, the iconic hairpins of the Jebel Jais highway were the next destination, as the Defender demonstrated its on-road comfort and agile handling, scaling altitudes of nearly 2000 metres to scale the tallest…

ON September 29 the infamous Billing Lakeside Off-road Course in Northamptionshire will be hosting a Driving Day exclusively for women. A brand-new event for 2019 and LRM, it will run from 9.30 am to 1 pm and guests will get to trial their Land Rovers on the less technical of the two courses at Billing, and learn what they need to do to take on all types of terrain, giving them the confidence to take their vehicles out whatever the weather. The LRM Women’s Day offers a fantastic opportunity for ladies to take their vehicles off-road in a safe environment, complete with help and advice from on-site experts – including Ro Furby who is the LRE Lead Instructor for Solihull and specially supporting the day for LRM.

jaguar land rover trials new recycling process

JAGUAR Land Rover is trialling an innovative recycling process which converts plastic waste into a new premium grade material that could feature on future vehicles. It’s estimated that the amount of waste plastic is predicted to exceed 12 million tonnes globally by 2050. Today, not all of this plastic can be recycled for use in automotive applications – especially in vehicle parts that are required to meet the most exacting safety and quality standards. Working in conjunction with chemical company, BASF, JLR is part of a pilot project called ChemCycling that upcycles domestic waste plastic, otherwise destined for landfill or incinerators, into a new high-quality material. The waste plastic is transformed to pyrolysis oil using a thermochemical process. This secondary raw material is then fed into BASF’s production chain as a replacement for…
