Date: 17 September, 2016
Location: The East of England Showground, Peterborough PE2 6XE
Enthusiasts from around the world are expected to descend on the event billed as Britain’s biggest and best Land Rover gathering this September.
The Land Rover Owner (LRO) International Show arrives in Peterborough from September 17 to 18.
As many as 14,000 connoisseurs flocked to the venue two years ago to see what this classic gathering was all about, spending over £2.6 million in the process.
Last year the iconic Defender took pride of place. It was given a suitable send-off to mark the end of its production after a 67-year cycle spanning its 90 and 110 incarnations.
Off-road offerings and excellent exhibitors
Fancy taking an awesome off-road course? Well, here’s your chance - for just £20. The show has a purpose-built off-road course for beginners and veterans alike.
Last year’s 3.7-mile Yarwell Quarry route took drivers an average of around 40 minutes to complete. It was all the handiwork of the digger-happy LRO Adventure Club’s Pro-Trax team.
The result? Steep climbs, twisters, tight woodland turns, lake splashes and mud pools aplenty… and all without damaging the machines. This year’s off-road challenge promises to be no less fun.
Some of the best niche exhibitors in the business will be on hand with a huge variety of services and products. Surplus World, 1948 Original Equipment and Nene Overland are among the companies on show.
Don’t leave without…
• Having a look at the new Land Rovers for sale: Even if you don’t buy one, it’s worth having a glimpse at the latest models
• Seeing what’s in the high-octane action arena: Thrills and spills are likely if last year was anything to go by. Special activities included a winch challenge demo under cover of night
• Enjoying the trade stands: Auto-jumbles, expedition and off-road parts, clothing, tours, tools and accessories will all be available to tempt you
