7, 8 & 9 OCTOBER 2022 - LES COMES, SURIA, BARCELONA SPAIN

The best, unheard of... Land-Rover Party will usher in the final act of the 2022 events season. This is a meeting for all Land-Rover owners that want to live an amazing weekend with their family and friends. A place, full of unforgettable surprises, where you will discover the new Land-Rover range, including the new Land-Rover Defender, and enjoy a wide range of activities with your family: Displays, adventure zone, trade fair, workshops, live music, 4×4 tours, courses, exhibitions, a games centre with a children’s area for the little ones to play, and many more surprises.

Les Comes, the only official Land-Rover Experience centre in the Iberian Peninsula, will make available to all attendees over 70 km of 4×4 tracks (classified by colour according to their difficulty) so you can experience new challenges at the wheel of your Land-Rover. An off-road paradise for you to enjoy and experience.

Now something unrelated to Land-Rovers, but very near to where we are located in Surrey, is an event not to be missed either... For those of you who enjoy revelling in the past more than looking ahead to the future will feel much more at home at the world-famous London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, which commemorated its 125th anniversary last year. The event is a re-enactment of the renowned Emancipation Run of 1896, and involves driving antiquated pre-1905 motor cars 60 miles from London to Brighton in a non-competitive regularity rally. Certainly one for the bucket list – even if there is a strong possibility of a breakdown or two!

"So plenty of events to look forward to already - and that's only scratching the surface"
