Land Rover’s 70th anniversary to be celebrated at the Lancaster Insurance Classic and Supercars Show - Sherborne Castle
Thursday January 4, 2018
Show organisers are delighted to announce for 2018 the marque feature will be a celebration of ‘Land Rover’ sponsored by Yeovil Land Rover, Somerset.
The design for the original Land Rover was started in 1948 by Maurice Wilks, chief designer at the Rover Company, and his brother Spencer, managing director of Rover. The early vehicles only came in various shades of light green, as dictated by military surplus supplies of aircraft cockpit paint, and all models until recently featured sturdy box section ladder-frame chassis.
Andrew Evanson, Senior Operations Manager at Lancaster Insurance, comments: “After a hugely successful show last year, we’re delighted to be involved in the event once again and what better marque to celebrate than 70 years of the Land Rover. Land Rovers, for me, signify the best of British and I’m looking forward to seeing the range on display.”
This prestigious charity event, now in its 15th year and taking place on 15th July 2018, is regarded as one of the premier classic and supercar shows in the South of England. Over 2,000 cars will be exhibited including Vintage, Classic, Rally, Race, Supercars, American, Custom and Hot Rods. There will be over 150 trade, craft and autojumble stands plus a Charterhouse car auction, live music in the catering village, amusements for children and beautiful picnic places.
The show raises money for national and local charities, including Cancer Research UK, and has raised £130,000 over the past four years. For more information on the show please visit: www.classic-supercars.co.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
