JOHANNESBURG, Gauteng – Nothing says “off-road” better than the best-loved 4×4 of them… Land Rover. So, a Landy Fest is being organised by Land Rover Classic and the older generations – Series 1,2 and 3 – are invited.

LR Classic will host the event in Limpopo, South Africa, from Friday April 5 – Sunday April 7 2019 with a R500/competing vehicle entry fee.

The new event will be sponsored by Leimer’s Land Rover for original Land Rover Series vehicles at the Rust de Winter All-Wheel Drive Club’s terrain.

All other Landies and day visitors (entry fee: R60 per vehicle, unlimited occupants) will be welcome.
