Live workshop demos with LRO & Britpart

  • Posted on: 1 August 2017

Land Rover Owner magazine’s workshop section will be brought to life at this year’s show in our workshop tent, where our experts will demonstrate a range of different tasks on our fleet of vehicles. This year in the LRO/Britpart workshop theatre the teams will demonstrate how to fit new bumpers and how to lift the suspension on LRO’s Discovery 2, as well as demonstrating how the new Lynx Evo diagnostic tool works. Martin from LRO and Steve from Britpart will show you how to make your Land Rover off-road ready with under body protection and lights, and they’ll be on-hand all weekend to answer your questions and give hints, tips and workshop guidance. An official timetable will be available soon but those of you who have already booked, be sure to drop by to see what the guys are up to.

  • Posted on: 1 August 2017

From David Bowie to The Beatles to Adele... you request it, they’ll play it! Tiger Club are one of the best bands in the East Midlands, and we're lucky enough to have them playing on the Saturday night at this years' LRO Show. Put together in 2013, the band is a mix of musicians drawn from acts like The Motivators, Retrolux and Citizen Smith, all well renowned in the region. Comprising guitar, keyboards, bass and drums, with a wide range of material, some current, some classic, some rare, all performed with an ironic smile. See the band live on Saturday night from 8:30pm onwards in the Atrium.

LRO PETERBOROUGH SHOW GOES OFF-ROAD AT TIXOVER

  • Posted on: 21 June 2017

The off-road course for this month’s LRO Peterborough Show (Sept 17-18) is moving to the legendary Tixover Grange site in Rutland.

Due to current planning restrictions at Yarwell Quarry, which now make it impossible for us to run the Britpart-sponsored LRO Peterborough Show off-road course at its traditional home, we’ve secured a fantastic alternative: Tixover Grange, to ensure show visitors have a chance to exercise their Land Rovers as the manufacturer intended.

Although a little further from the East of England Showground than Yarwell, Tixover is a legendary site and a stalwart of the UK off-road competition scene.

Our mission to find 2017’s Modified Land Rover of the Year, in association with Sureterm Direct, is hotting up. We have 25 Land Rovers that have made it to this stage in the competition and we now need your help deciding who the top three finalists should be? To vote, visit www.modifiedlro.co.uk as of the 14th of June 2017.

The vehicles that make the top three will be on display on the LRO stand at the show, where visitors will be able to vote for who they believe should be crowned the ultimate Modified Land Rover of the Year over the weekend.
