buying delights

BUYING a Land Rover is without a doubt the most orgasmic experience possible for the true Land Rover enthusiast. Like all of your Christmases have come at once. We literally explode with joy once the money has been handed over and the deal has been concluded. And it applies to the purchase of any Land Rover. It can be one that you drove past every day for several years on the way to work and every time you knocked on the door the owner said it was not for sale, but then finally says it is, and you have been given first refusal. Or it could be a Land Rover that you or your family have a special connection with? Maybe it used to belong to your dad or your…

The best show in town LIKE Dave Phillips (LRM, January) one of the things I missed most during the coronavirus-affected year 2020 was the outdoor Land Rover events that were cancelled. For most of my adult life these shows have been the highlights of my summer. The Billing Show was always my favourite. I started going there in the 1990s and even booked my summer holidays so that I could camp at the Aquadrome for a week and immerse myself in all things Land Rover, with the best people in the world, who of course were – and still are – Land Rover fans. To spend a summer’s evening chatting into the small hours with enthusiasts sharing the same love of Land Rovers was – and still is – magical. My proudest memories…

car of the year and five star ncap rating for new defender

IF you care what Top Gear thinks then you might be interested to hear that the new Defender has secured both the overall Car of the Year and the Unstoppable Force award, adding to its 30 global accolades to date. Judges of the prestigious prize praised the new Defender for being one of the toughest vehicles on the road today, and a brilliant successor to the original iconic Land Rover. While it admits that the high price tag will put off the farming and rural community, it says its still one of the toughest, most capable off-roaders they’ve ever tested, and, at the same time a refined, well-equipped family car. We wouldn’t disagree there. To celebrate the achievement, Land Rover teamed up with the well-known motoring magazine to prove the structural toughness…

land rover legends 2021 dates and new award categories revealed

WITH the UK Covid-19 vaccination programme underway hopefully we can look forward to a fairly normal 2021 – a year where we can meet up with more than six people and perhaps enjoy a show or two. This being the case, the Land Rover Legends’ team has confirmed their return, with the third edition of the show due to take place at Thruxton Circuit in Hampshire, on June 12 and 13. With the added bonus of the event sitting alongside the Thruxton Historic race meeting, you can also take advantage of the venue’s extensive facilities, including a dedicated campsite, kart track, skid pan and, more importantly, a superb 4x4 course. Showcasing the very best examples of the marque, including several rare and unusual vehicles from the Dunsfold Collection, you can also…

news in brief

Fined for reckless behaviour We here at LRM will only use rights of way with known, proven or provable vehicular rights, and we hope our readers take the same approach when it comes to driving on unsurfaced roads. One chap that didn’t and was rightfully punished for it was Benjamin Long, 18, who caused extensive damage to heathland while ‘test driving’ a Land Rover before abandoning it at the top of a hill. He was fined £500 each for driving an overweight vehicle on a greenway road and driving a vehicle elsewhere other than on a highway, and given three penalty points. Maybe in future Benjamin should pay closer attention to the Green Lane Association Code of Conduct. Former Springbok star Bryan Habana and Land Rover support Red Cross Land Rover is lending…
