Spot­ted: a Land Rover with grunt

Big Rigs - - NEWS -

EV­ERY driver has a story about an out­landish sight they have spot­ted while trav­el­ling on a re­mote track.

Yet noth­ing would quite com­pare to the scene ‘The Trav­el­ling Teach­ers and Tribe’ fam­ily came across while trav­el­ling home from Uluru.

It wasn’t a mi­rage, a ghost town or a desert-walk­ing mys­tic, it was a G&S trans­port truck equipped with seven trail­ers, be­ing pulled by a Land Rover Dis­cov­ery.

“We were on our way back from Uluru when we came across a crew film­ing a new Land Rover Dis­cov­ery ad. It’s not ev­ery day that you see a ve­hi­cle pulling a seven-trailer road train,” the fam­ily ex­plained in their on­line post of the feat, which has since gone vi­ral.

“The pro­ducer said no so­cial me­dia for four weeks and we kept our prom­ise. So two months later, here it is.

“Such an awesome thing to see and it was le­git­i­mately pulling it.

“The only rea­son I didn’t get the take-off was be­cause we were sit­ting there for so long wait­ing that we just missed it.”

While Lan­drover has re­mained hush-hush on when the clip will be re­leased it has gen­er­ated quite a bit of in­ter­est – and some scep­tics – on­line.

“Won­der if the crank­shaft broke be­fore they fin­ished film­ing like most do,” said one com­menter.

The footage has been viewed more than 158,000 times.
