Garage sign in French village we spent over an hour here waiting for the others. Drew leads our small convoy through the Charente. Lanes are in regular use by farmers, and as short-cuts for locals. IT'S JUST gone six in the morning and the villages of Aunac and Bayers have had a rude awakening. Our two Series Land Rovers - dusty from the long trip through France and a good few miles of dry greenlaning - are growling, whining and humming their way towards the main N10 trunk road, and an eventual...

Exports outside the EEC deduct 14.9 - Carriage charge extra - All major credit cards accepted. E amp OE Defender brakes are really rather good but there's always room for improvement. Lindsay shows how MM 4x4 can greatly improve the stopping power of your Land Rover. can generally lock the wheels so in theory, 'wonder' brakes won't be able to stop the vehicle any quicker. However, braking when pulling a trailer or caravan on a long downhill stretch or several, repeated hard stops will almost...

Bill Baker

Served as PR chief for Land Rover North America for nearly 20 years, with a stint in the UK for the 50th anniversary of the brand. THERE WAS an article in today's newspaper saying President Barack Obama's efforts to increase fuel economy standards in the US will not necessarily spell doom for large SUVs. While sales of the largest of them have declined in recent years, there was actually a small increase in that segment in 2010. That's because there are still plenty of people who need a...

The good Range Rover is set to receive the same surgery that the blue one suffered. ABS braking system merrily pumped with the engine running and a rusty brake pipe left it all flood out at me. Both Range Rovers were dealt with in much the same way. We removed the bonnet and front bumper where present and sliced out the centre section of the front radiator panels. The radiator, intercooler and air conditioning unit were all carefully taken out and set to one side. Then all of the pipes, cables...

Long Defender

THE LONGEST Defender that Land Rover builds in the UK has a 127-inch wheelbase and is marketed as the Defender 130. There have been longer ones around the world 129 inches for the Netherlands to get around a tax barrier , 135 inches in Kenya as a safari tour bus , and 147 inches in South Africa again as a safari tour bus . But these are rare. So I presume this one is a locally modified confection. The picture appeared on the web a while ago and caused some consternation because nobody had ever...

Desert Rats

As in those days they regularly camouflaged the Sea Kings with a tiger camo for Arctic deployments you can see where the idea originated. Essentially the camo scheme involved spraying their NATO Green vehicles overall with a Desert Stone base coat and then adding stripes in RAF Desert Pink, in two coats with the second coat covering less area then the first to give depth. This was actually a very effective scheme for northeast Saudi Arabia and it was more effective than the two-tone Sand and...
