Brian Joss – Nothing says “off-road” better than the best loved four-wheeler vehicle of them all, the iconic Land Rover.
And what better than the classic older generation – the Series 1,2 & 3.
LR Classic, which is far more than simply a fan club, will be hosting the LR Series Fest in Gauteng, South Africa, from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 April (Entry fee: R500 avehicle).
Hosted by LRclassic.com and sponsored by Leimer’s Land Rover, this new event for original Land Rover Series vehicles will be held at the site of the Rust de Winter All-Wheel Drive Club’s terrain.
All other Landies and day visitors (entry fee: R60 a vehicle; unlimited occupants) are welcome.
Participants, who will be camping on site for the weekend, will be taking part in a host of activities designed to test the abilities of man and machine – some historic (Landies) and some just ancient (owners).
Activities on Saturday include a 4×4 track for Series (leaf spring) vehicles only – challenging, but not too difficult and not a vehicle destroyer, series fun activities including “start with crank”, radio -controlled 4×4 models on purpose-built track and a bring-and-braai in the evening.
Festival activities running all weekend include food stalls, a beer tent for over-18s and a pool and playing area for the kids.
