Classic Land Rover Show set for Gaydon

Published 08 December 2016

The Classic Land Rover Show will return to the British Motor Museum at Gaydon slightly earlier than usual in 2017. The show, which will be in its third year, will take place over the weekend of 6-7 May and promises to bring together some of the best Land Rovers in the country.

The 2017 show will take a look back into the history of Land Rovers’ development and feature some of the rival vehicles that were also in development at the time, with crews and vehicles from the Austin Champ and Austin Gipsy clubs attending.

This year all vehicle crews, whether on club stands or displaying vehicles, are invited to dress according to the year of their vehicle, with guest judges looking for authenticity and attention to detail. A professional photographer will be on hand to help capture the event and there will be prizes for the best turned out.

The show organisers are also looking for teams to enter The Land Rover Academician of the Year Award. A fun quiz which will see teams battling their Land Rover knowledge with Quiz Master and motoring journalist Dave Barker.

With the help of a host of stars from across Land Rover world, the teams will be whittled down to two for a final head to head on Sunday. With lifelines like 'ask the audience' and 'consult an expert', everyone can join in.

Visitors to the show will also be able to visit the Museum and Collections centre which is home to a wide range of Land Rovers, including HUE, the very popular, first Land Rover.

Ticket prices are: adults £14, children £9 (5-16 years - under fives go free), concessions £12, family £39. Discounted advance tickets are available online which includes camping passes at £25 per pitch for two nights.
