New for 2019 will be weekend camping facilities at Bicester Heritage, and evening entertainment on the Saturday, allowing Land Rover fans more time on site with Solihull’s finest.
Several Land Rover models will celebrate major milestones during the event, including the 30th anniversary of the first-generation Discovery and the Range Rover P38’s 25th birthday.
Although the focus of Land Rover Legends is on authenticity and originality, the event is open to all Land Rovers of any condition. Curated static displays of important heritage vehicles are already in the planning, but Bicester Heritage’s main technical park will be lined with all manner of classic and modern Land Rovers – including the AutoClassics Series III 88in.
Awards will be handed out for the Most Original, Best Restored and Best Bespoke Land Rover, with this year’s roster including a Series 1 ‘Oxford’, a Freelander 1 (it’s a classic too, you know!), plus the most original first-generation Discovery and the most battered Series IIA 109in in existence.
The 2019 event will bring together the vehicles, the people and the stories behind the global name to celebrate everything that’s special about Land Rover past and present. It will also feature tales of exploration from some of the off-road community’s most famous faces.
Tickets are available to buy as of November. Find out more information here.
Land Rover Legends: Need to know
Every Land Rover attending can be part of the show, with a dedicated forward parking area for all visitors arriving in a Land Rover, while marque clubs will be invited to both display and demonstrate their vehicles. Carefully selected exhibitors and traders will be located in and around Bicester Heritage’s magnificent main exhibition hangar, showcasing the top Land Rover restorers, specialists and associated suppliers.
The Land Rover celebration takes place against the appropriately authentic and beautifully restored backdrop of the former military buildings at Bicester Heritage. Once a World War Two RAF bomber station, Bicester Heritage is now the UK’s only hub for historic motoring excellence, and its buildings and airfield provide a superb setting for Land Rover Legends.
