Land Rover Defender Challenge Is The Best Way To Celebrate An Off-Road Beast

Driving fast in off-road conditions.

Durability and reliability. Those are perhaps two of the best words to sum up the Land Rover Defender. It’s been around for decades and, sadly, the Defender will soon be discontinued. Fortunately there are countless Defender enthusiasts and owners throughout the world that will maintain these vehicles and keep them on the road for as long as possible. There’s even an official Defender off-road racing event called the Defender Challenge. There’s really little need to describe what happens here.

Owners modify their 4x4s for some tough road conditions and then drive fast. It’s a celebration of the Land Rover Defender, and XCAR was there to experience the fun. Sadly, it may be one of the last pure and true off-road heavyweights.
