  • Champion riders Ben and Laura join Zara Phillips on the Land Rover equestrian roster
  • Exclusive series of films gives behind-the-scenes glimpse into the riders’ training and preparation
  • Cements Land Rover’s on-going support of equestrian sports including sponsorship of Team GBR and the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials

Whitley, UK, September 6 2013 - Land Rover is to release exclusive films of equestrian champions, show jumper Ben Maher and dressage rider Laura Tomlinson, in celebration of their new roles as ambassadors for the brand.

They join Zara Phillips as Land Rover equestrian ambassadors and help cement the manufacturer’s on-going support of the sport.

lr_equestrian_brand_ambassadors_060913_03Land Rover is producing a series of exclusive films featuring the riders which will include an edition with Zara Phillips. Each rider’s individual film will take viewers behind the scenes, giving a glimpse into their training regimes, hopes and aims for competition, and insights from their trainers and support team.

Ben Maher is ranked number one in the FEI world rankings for show jumping, recently winning a team Gold and individual Silver with Jane Clark’s Cella at the 2013 FEI European Championships in Herning, Denmark. He was also a member of the Gold medal-winning British team at the London 2012 Olympics with the homebred Tripple X III.

Now 30, Ben had overtaken regular British team members by the age of 26, with consistent wins around the globe in some of the sport’s most prestigious events, which include winning the recent Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix in London and Longines King George V Gold Cup at Hickstead. He is one of just two riders to have won both the Hickstead Derby and Speed Derby in the same year.

lr_equestrian_brand_ambassadors_060913_02Ben commented: “I am incredibly excited to be joining Land Rover’s roster of equestrian ambassadors. Sitting alongside riders such as Zara Phillips is a huge privilege and Land Rover’s on-going support of the sport is great to see.”

Ben’s film is now live and can be viewed here - https://www.facebook.com/landrover.uk.

Laura Tomlinson is a long-time member of the British Dressage Team. Now age 28, Laura first competed for Britain when she was 14 and she made her debut at senior level in 2006. With her beloved horse Mistral Højris, Laura has won several team and individual medals including the team gold and individual bronze medals at the London 2012 Olympics.

Following the Olympics her aim is now to concentrate on bringing through up and coming younger horses and hopefully mould them into future champions.

Laura added: “It is great to be able to join riders such as Ben and Zara as a Land Rover ambassador. Land Rover vehicles are both powerful and elegant and these are traits I look for in my horses. I hope that my role as an ambassador and my new film will help to raise awareness of the sport and also bring in interest from the younger generation.”

Laura’s film is set to be released on the 10th September and will be available to view on Land Rover’s Facebook tab, www.facebook.com/landrover.uk, with Zara’s film to appear later in the month.

Land Rover has supported equestrian sports for over 30 years, both through individual riders and event sponsorships. Land Rover is the Official Vehicle of Team GBR, which has riders across all disciplines as well as dedicated youth teams, and is title sponsor of the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials, which run from the 5th to the 8th September 2013.

Jeremy Hicks, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover UK said “We are delighted to announce Ben and Laura as new ambassadors for the brand. They are both fantastic young British riders and encapsulate all the traits that are important to Land Rover – their style is elegant yet powerful and both go Above and Beyond in competition.”

Celebrating 20 years in the Trade

 

Duncan and SandyDuncan & Sandy Mansfield our Company Directors are celebrating their 20th year in the Land Rover trade this month, having started Mansfield Motors on the 1st of September 1993.

Duncan is feeling his age now when some of his staff were not even born then, and prior to starting in the trade he had already had a successful career in the Armed forces and Metropolitan Police, so that makes him feel older still! He first started Driving Land Rovers on his father’s farm back in 1977, then drove them worldwide whilst serving in the Armed Forces, as did Sandy, so it was natural that they would move into the Land Rover trade eventually.

Land Rover announces upgraded Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models for 2014, featuring new technologies and offering even greater customer choice.  The upgraded models will be available to order from 10th September with deliveries starting from early 2014.

Depending on individual markets, newly available customer-focused driver assistance technologies will include: Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane Departure Warning and Perpendicular Park, while the new Land Rover InControlTM will deliver a host of connectivity features, keeping drivers and passengers in touch with their world.

The choice of diesel and petrol powertrains is carried over with the additional availability of the powerful 4.4-litre SDV8 diesel in the Range Rover Sport, and the introduction of V6-powered, 340PS hybrid models (with CO2 ratings of just 169g/km) for both bodystyles.

“The addition of the powerful and efficient SDV8 diesel to the Range Rover Sport line-up and yet more exciting new customer-focused technologies to both the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport for 2014, further underlines their position as two of the most desirable SUVs on the market today,” said Land Rover Global Brand Director, John Edwards.

4.4 SDV8 Diesel Power

The 4.4 SDV8 for fitment in the Range Rover Sport has a revised intake system including twin-intercoolers, a new sump, new cast alloy engine mounts (giving a 10kg weight saving) and optimised calibration.  Developing 339PS and a massive 700Nm torque, the turbo-diesel delivers uncompromising performance and driveability in real world conditions.

Driving through a ZF 8HP70 8-speed automatic transmission, the SDV8 powered Sport accelerates to 62mph (100km/h) in 6.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 140mph (225km/h) when the Dynamic Pack is fitted.

Depending on market, the upgraded Range Rover and Range Rover Sport are also available with two petrol engines; 5.0L V8 S/C 510PS and 3.0L V6 S/C 340PS,  two diesel engines; 3.0L TDV6 258PS and 3.0L SDV6 292PS (the latter being available on Range Rover Sport only) and the recently revealed hybrid powertrain.

Land Rover’s first-ever hybrid models share an identical powertrain – the 3-litre SDV6 turbo-diesel engine driving through an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission with a 35kW electric motor-generator in place of the torque converter.  Total output is 340PS and a class-leading 700Nm torque, generating acceleration to 62mph (100km/h) in under seven seconds.  The new models achieve CO2 emissions of 169g/km and record 44.1mpg on the combined cycle.

Stunning new Black Design Pack for Range Rover

Available in selected markets, the upgraded 2014 models can be equipped with a forward looking camera mounted which monitors the vehicle’s position between lane markings and the Lane Departure Warning system provides haptic feedback through the steering wheel should the driver begin to move out of lane without using the indicator.  The same camera is used for the Traffic Sign Recognition system which identifies speed limit signs, no overtaking signs and a variety of other warning and information signs.

A host of smart technologies

In addition to the new-for-2014 features, the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport are available with a host of carry-over smart technologies to enhance comfort and safety, and ensure that drivers enjoy a relaxed and stress-free experience behind the wheel.
