Jaguar Land Rover launches classic driving experience

Published 03 October 2017

A new driving event that puts drivers at the wheel of some of the best-loved classic Jaguars and Land Rovers has been launched. The event, which is run by Jaguar Land Rover Classic, is held at the 5000-acre estate at Eastnor Castle in Herefordshire.

Visitors will tackle thick mud and challenging slopes in some of the vehicles that helped establish Land Rover, like an early Series 1 and a Range Rover Classic. Once guests are finished testing some of Land Rover’s most iconic vehicles on the Eastnor estate, they’ll be able to take to the wheel of some Jaguar legends.

From the late-1950s is the XK150 - the last in the line of XK sports car legends of their time. But drivers can also experience its replacement – the E-type. Visitors will have the chance to try both a Series 1 and the later Series 3 of the 1970s. Enthusiasts will also be able to drive the car that gave Jaguar its reputation for ‘grace, space, and pace’ – the Mk2 saloon.

Tim Hannig, Jaguar Land Rover Classic director, said, ‘It’ll be a trip back in time and an experience that only Jaguar Land Rover’s incredible heritage can offer.’
