The hugely popular and successful Classic Land Rover Show returns for a second year at the British Motor Museum on 25 and 26 June. This year the show aims to celebrate the Land Rover as a working vehicle. Hundreds of vehicles will be on display including Fred Dimnah's 1972 Lightweight Land Rover. This year also sees the long awaited return of the popular Heritage Run, which takes place from Solihull to Gaydon and is for all pre 1980 vehicles.
On the Saturday, the focus will be on the utility vehicles in the arena and the Mini Me Parade. Certificates of Merit will be handed out by well known Land Rover experts and journalists. Commentary is provided by Diana Tigwell, with Richard Beddall and Motor Journalist David Barker, with guest speakers throughout the weekend. Throughout the weekend visitors will also be able to view over 250 vehicles from the reserve collection which are on display in the Collections Centre. Many of these vehicles are one of a kind and most have never been seen by the public.
There will also be three Land Rovers on display from the Dunsfold Collection, home to the largest collection of Land Rovers in the world. Plus demonstrations, a trade area, and Club displays.
Land Rover owners can take part in the Heritage Run on Sunday 26 June by downloading an entry form from the Museum's website. Land Rover Clubs who wish to enter vehicles into the show can also enter via the website. For those that wish to make a weekend of it, camping is available from 4pm on Friday 24 June until 7pm on Sunday 26 June.
Tom Caren, Show Manager at the British Motor Museum stated "We are delighted to welcome back this popular show and we're hoping to attract as many of these iconic vehicles as possible. It's a great family day out where you can see everything from the classic series 1s to the new Discovery!"
