Everybody loves a freebie, especially when it involves a FREE drink! So to make sure those of you who purchase weekend camping tickets kick-start the weekend in style, we’ve arranged a ‘Buy 1, Get 1 Free Happy Hour’. This exclusive offer will take place on Friday September 14th at the Moose Bar, near the Northampton Suite and behind the main grandstand. Never ones to miss out on a free beer, the writers behind Land Rover Owner International magazine will be there between 7-8pm to eat, drink, and of course, socialise. Soft drinks are also included within this offer. Don’t miss out – book tickets today. It’s going to be one almighty Land Rover party!
We've managed to cram in over 60 clubs, so make sure you go for a good walk round. Clubs dedicated to single models, like the Land Rover Series One Club and Series 2 Club, have large stands so you can check out a wide range of classics and chat to owners about the pleasure - and sometimes pain - of ownership. And the Range Rover Register and Discovery Owners' Club always have a bevvy of beautiful vehicles on display. If military vehicles are your thing, check out the ex-military area. Fancy joining the 4x4 Repsonse network and helping others? The group has a sizeable stand with reps from all areas of the UK. Sign up and help out. But just want to do some off-roading, competition or adventuring? No problem; there's a club for you. Grab a show guide and make sure you see all the stands. they're a major part of the show.
The centre of the main arena is converted into a massive obstacle course to show off what Land Rovers can do. It's designed by John Lawn. "We want to make it as true-to-life as possible so we bring in tons of earth to create the course". And it is certainly a spectacle. As well as the challenges across the gnarly terrain (see photo above), we'll also be holding an RTV (road taxed vehicle) trial run under MSA permit. This shows what you can get up to in a more standard vehicle - one you drive everyday but want to have abit more fun in without damaging or having to modify it. Russ Brown, our clubs tsar, will be putting together the RTV with the help of club friends. LRO contributor Jerry Thurston is compère: and JT is always good value with a mic in his hand!
