Go off-road!

  • Posted on: 25 June 2017

Fancy a challenge? Then go off-road at our infamous course, suitable for all Land Rovers. Earthmovers have been attacking the grounds at the legendary Tixover Grange, which is just a couple of miles away from the Peterborough Showground, to form the foundations of our greatest course yet. With access to previously inaccessible areas, show visitors can expect bigger obstacles and tougher challenges than ever before! Looking for a smoother ride? Gentle routes will be available for beginners (and those of you who want to look after your vehicles). Our professional marshals will also be on hand throughout the weekend to offer advice or assistance. So what are you waiting for? Do you accept our challenge? Then buy your tickets today!

Ticket rules and regulations:
• Sessions cost £20 per go when booked in advance. 
• It is £10 extra for a second go, which is payable on the gate.
• We advise you get your ticket in advance avoid disappointment.
The course running time will be 30 minutes per session.
Speed warnings will be deployed – so please take note.


Just 20 minutes from the main show site, our quarry-based off-road course provides a thrilling opportunity to drive your Land Rover as it was intended. With hard-packed sand in a lot of areas, it's an “all weather” site and most of its features are usable all year, although currently there is little water in the lake!

Don't just take our word for it! Here's what some of our visitors had to say:

Pete Holder, off-road course marshal & Defender 110 owner
'Other shows have off-road courses, but not with this vast and varied terrain. I go to a lot of pay and play events and I get a lot from them, so marshalling is a chance for me to give something back.’

Mike Potter, show visitor & Discovery 2 Td5 owner
'This was a trial run for my 2002 Discovery 2’s new suspension lift and rock sliders. Brilliant course. A bit more challenging than last year. Well organised, and nice and long.’

Ali McLean, show visitor & Defender 90 owner
'The LRO Show course is the best. Definitely good value for money. I think I’ll have a cuppa and go round again!’
