The Land Rover and Range Rover Weekly 6
The largest collection of vintage Land Rover Defenders, a 2km tunnel and a 3,000-mile charity excursion make-up this week’s Top Stories.
To kick things off this week we wanted to share a webpage that takes a close look at Masirah, Oman’s biggest island, which has often been dubbed ‘ The Land Rover Paradise’ due to the sheer number of classic Defenders that are present – Locals explain that they are the perfect tool for fisherman on the island. Check out the page for more information and a great selection of photos.
MSN cars have given a first person account of the Range Rover Evoque press launch in Liverpool earlier this week. The launch was very different to what you would normally expect as the press were given the chance to drive the vehicle through a deep, dark 2km tunnel that runs beneath the city. Find out how they got on in their latest article.
To finish on an uplifting note, the Daily Gazette featured an article about James Cowie, who plans to embark upon an 11-country trip in his 24-year-old Defender in memory of his father Mick, who recently died from cancer. James is raising money for the Mary Barron Suite who cared for his father and if you would like to donate towards the cause, visit his Just Giving page.
One last thing, if you happen to be in the Merseyside area between now and 21st August then head down to the Albert Dock for a chance to be one of the first to ride in the Range Rover Evoque. You will also be able to test drive our other models on the exclusive floating off-road course. This is a charity event, with all the proceeds going towards the NSPCC and the RNLI, read the full article at Click Liverpool.
