lrm and real billing join forces

IT gives me great pleasure to announce that Land Rover Monthly magazine and the Billing Off Road Show have joined forces. Therefore, the ever-growing 2020 Billing Off Road show will be held in association with Land Rover Monthly magazine on June 27 and 28 on a farm in the sleepy village of Little Houghton, Northamptonshire. LRM has a great relationship with the organisers and landowners, Sarah and Richard Arrowsmith and we’re delighted about the partnership. Please turn to page 8 for more developments and keep an eye on our social media channels for updates on special show ticket offers for LRM readers and subscribers. In what can only be described as the most unpopular move in the history of Land Rover shows in the world, Live Promotions announced at the back…

lrm and the billing off road show join forces

WE’RE delighted to announce that LRM has partnered with the organisers of the 2020 Billing Off Road show. Held on June 27-28, this year’s event in association with LRM promises to be the biggest and most action-packed one yet, with club and trade stand bookings already at record levels. The magazine has a long-standing and fruitful relationship with Landy-loving hosts Sarah and Richard Arrowsmith, including breaking the Guinness World Record for the largest parade of Land Rovers in 2018 and hosting special off-road days last year. This off-road mecca is the perfect fit. “Unlike some other shows this one won’t break the bank, or your Land Rover. For the last three years we have had glorious sunshine at the show, which is why the Landy fans converge in their droves,” says editor…

brains and brawn

THE new Land Rover 90 and 110 proved just how capable and connected it was at CES 2020, the world’s largest consumer electronics show. As the first-ever vehicle to feature two embedded LTE modems for enhanced connectivity, as well as the brand’s new Pivi Pro touchscreen infotainment (which shares electronic hardware with the latest smartphones), it seems that JLR have stepped things up a gear when it comes to infotainment. We’ll try and cut through the technological jargon as best we can, but the Pivi Pro system (which is apparently fast-responding and intuitive – two words we’d never use to describe Land Rovers previous head units) allows customers to make full use of new Defender’s Software-Over-The-Air (SOTA) technology, without compromising its ability to stream music and connect to apps on the…

SULTAN Qaboos, often referenced by Thom Westcott in her columns, sadly passed away on Friday January 10. He loved Land Rovers and drove them all of his life. His coffin was taken to his final resting place by a rather ornate Land Rover 110 flanked by a cavalcade of other unique SUVs. The Arabic in the picture reads: “In 1970, we cried with joy, and today we cried with sadness,” while the numerals are 1970 and 2020 respectively. Aged 79 he was the longest-serving leader in the Middle East and Arab world at the time of his death. If you were a fan of the late Sultan of Oman, then you can buy one his old cars – a 1983 classic Range Rover with six doors (yes you read that right!).…

north west 4x4 response teams up with davanti

AS a crisis support charity, partnering with a state-of-the-art tyre manufacturer is a major coup. In the tie-up, Davanti’s flagship all-terrains will play a vital role as North West 4x4 Response deliver medical teams, urgent response professionals and supplies to remote rural areas. From snowdrifts and floods during the winter to wildfires in the summer, North West 4x4 Response volunteer drivers use their own 4x4 vehicles to provide access for midwives, firefighters, food and supplies to communities that are difficult to access across Lancashire and Cheshire. They also assist in neighbouring areas when required as part of the national 4x4 Response network. “We tested Terratoura comprehensively and were very impressed with its performance in extremely challenging situations. It has handled everything we have thrown at it,” said NW4x4 chairman, John Forsdick.…

land rover wins hat trick

LAND Rover has won three titles at the UK’s most prestigious motoring awards evening; the 42nd running of the What Car? Car of the Year Awards. The Range Rover Evoque was awarded Best Family SUV, as the Range Rover Velar took Best Coupe SUV, the all-new Land Rover Defender took home the Reader Award for Most Anticipated Car of 2020 with more than double the votes of any other car, and the Discovery was named Best Luxury SUV under £60,000. Presumably if you’re reading this you have a Land Rover and don’t need a What Car? stamp of approval, but as industry awards go it isn’t a bad one to have we suppose!…
