We spent three days traveling the back roads of Wales to give these amazing Defenders a good shake-down before signing off on our extensive QA certification standards. We decided to film our adventures, even though we didn’t have much of a plan other than to point the Defenders towards Wales and see what we found.
We’re not sure what was more exciting: driving a freshly built Defender we built from the ground up or having the chance to experience driving in an Official Camel Trophy Land Rover in the wild. We’re working on a full-length documentary about this particular Camel Trophy Defender (releasing spring 2023), documenting some of the extraordinary travels we could take with it and what it takes to get a 25-year-old Defender ready for an adventure.
I don’t think there is a more capable vehicle on the planet that looks so good. We had a fantastic time and can’t wait to bring others on the next expedition. In the meantime, enjoy the sneak preview of the film, and a gallery of some of our favorite photos from the journey.
