Death of a Land Rover
« on: April 18, 2019, 09:52:27 am »


Water crossings can often spell big trouble for adventure bikers and 4x4's. It's only experience that gives one the knowledge of knowing how to tackle a crossing and more importantly when not to tackle a crossing. In our recent Ben 10 Eco Challenge Tour we lost a Land Rover in a flooded river. In our news release today we probe into the incident and review the day of high drama.

I'm not a Land Rover van but this is always in the back of my mind when you talk about a Land Rover - we never had coverage of them only saw it in news in those days.
How did those Land Rovers cross the rivers in the Camel trophy water roof height.



Maybe because they were Yellow - LOL
