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.
