Land Rover Experience Tour
Regional competition for an extreme six-day off-road Peruvian expedition
Land Rover has announced a regional competition giving participants the chance to win a Land Rover Experience Tour to South America, where they’ll drive the All-new Discovery on an extreme six-day off-road expedition through the Peruvian mountains, jungles and desert. Qualification events have begun across the Asia Pacific region, and the top local qualifier from each country will win a spot at the regional finals. The local qualification events take place on select weekends between July and September. The competition is free and no prior off-road driving experience is required. Anyone who wishes to participate can enter the competition by visiting the Land Rover website or calling
their local Land Rover dealerships for upcoming event schedules. During the local qualification events, entrants will participate in a series of driving and nondriving challenges designed by Land Rover instructors. The participant with the highest score from each country will win a trip for two to the regional finals in September.
The regional finals will be held over two rotations at the end of September. Competing in teams of two, the finalists will embark on a three-day driving adventure that takes them across a variety of landscapes and terrain. A series of driving challenges and tasks awaits the participants as they pit their skills against the best from the region. During the regional finals, emphasis is placed on vehicle handling on the tight and technical courses. Points will be awarded according to speed and accuracy across a range of activities. The top two pairs of finalists from each rotation will win a spot on the Land Rover Experience Tour Peru 2017.
“The Land Rover Experience Tour in Peru is an amazing once-in-a-lifetime adventure and we are really excited to bring this global competition to the region,” said Mr. Robin Colgan, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover Asia Pacific. “This is a wonderful platform for us to showcase the unique features and capabilities of our Land Rover vehicles and to meet people that share our love of adventure. Everybody is welcome to come and experience the capability and composure of our vehicles.”
The four winners, along with partners, will join the Land Rover Experience Tour Peru 2017 from November 4th to November 9th. The tour leaves Huancayo and drives almost 400 miles over the Peruvian mountains and through the desert to Pisco, Peru. Participants will drive the new Land Rover Discovery on a variety of terrain, including sand dunes, rocky riverbeds and mountain roads, as they experience the Peruvian desert and jungle, spectacular coastal tracks and local villages. Accommodation will include a mix of natural campsites and local lodges.
