oh no… not again! back in lockdown

Hopes that travel and events would resume in 2021 have been dealt a blow by governments (UK and overseas) introducing lockdowns to try to reduce transmission of Covid 19. In the UK it looks like the situation won’t change until at least the middle of March, so rather than giving a list of events we know won’t be happening, here’s what we’re most looking forward to later on this year – let’s hope that some of them can go ahead! LRO SHOW 11–12 September LROshow.com This is always the highlight of my Land Rover year. I love meeting and chatting to LRO readers from around the world, finding out about their Land Rover stories and sharing mine with them. Can’t wait.

a devil of a time

Driving, breaking and fixing the LRO fleet Neil Watterson EDITOR ‘What do you mean I don’t need a windscreen wiper on my side of the screen?’ HOW FAR? 200,000-ish miles HOW THIRSTY? 18-ish mpg OWNED FOR: This one is Phil’s. He’s had it for 22 years. JOB DONE! Competed in historic competition DON’T MENTION... Missing 27mm wheel nut sockets There’s a sign that pops up every now and again on social media. It simply reads SPEED LIMIT 55, to which someone has added: ‘Land Rovers just do your best.’ That’s sort of where we are now at the start of the Devil’s Lockdown Tests Part 2 organised by the Kirkby Lonsdale Motor Club. Nestled among the Ford Escorts, Mini Coopers, Porsche 911 and Subaru Impreza is a solitary Land Rover, and I’m in the navigator’s seat. The Series III belongs…

2021 – a happier new year

As I write this, just as 2020 draws to a close (and good riddance to it too), I’m reflecting on a tough year for many of us. My own plans were scuppered in March, when, after selling my house, I intended to explore the Americas, visiting as many Land Rover clubs as possible. Instead, as the first lockdown came into force, I took refuge in a caravan on a friend’s cattle farm. When you get to read this, I should be exchanging contracts on my new home in Devon, and, pandemic permitting, travel plans can resume in summer. Some enthusiasts managed to get together at the few events that went ahead between lockdowns and tier restrictions, or gathered electronically via Zoom meetings (other video meeting applications are available…). Many owners took the…

news in brief

Numbers up A quirk in the law that allowed any Land Rover registered as a Historic vehicle to wear black and silver numberplates has been changed. New rules mean that only Land Rovers registered before 1 January 1980 will be allowed to sport them; later ones must display standard white/yellow ones. Old tyre ban Owners of 10-and 12-seat Land Rovers will have to check their tyre age to ensure they stay legal. Legislation has been introduced banning tyres older than 10 years on minibuses – and 10- and 12-seat Land Rovers fall into that category. Models aged 40 and older are exempt. Classics’ Dakar The 2021 Dakar included a Classic event featuring vehicles from the past. As well as Baja Bugs and Peugeot 504 pick-ups a pair of Range Rover Classics were…
