The bursary offers the use of the Land Rover Defender 110 vehicle, along with funding, for those looking to set out on a journey that requires a Land Rover Defender 110 as an integral part of the expedition.
Some past achievements include: The 2009 Atlantic Rising (which meant leaving Georgetown and crossing several rivers) and the 2008 Latitude, crossing a nerve-wracking bridge in the Altai Mountains.
Mark Cameron, global brand extension director for Land Rover said; “It gives me great pleasure, in not only announcing the launch of the ‘Go Beyond’ Bursary 2012, but for the first time, to announce the trebling of the total amount of Land Rover funding.
“Hopefully, this will enable the winning Bursary team to match the vehicles’ ‘Go Anywhere’ philosophy and allow them to adventure further afield than ever before.”
The Defender is one of Land Rover’s most famous models with its iconic boxy design, modular assembly and its off-road abilities.
Land Rover has recently begun to expand this popular range with a new concept model of the Defender, the Defender DC100, which features many new technological features. For example, the DC100 concept features a Wade Aid system, which can measure water depth using sonar.
Land Rover vehicles are available from Perry’s Halifaxand Huddersfield – Rocar Moores dealerships.
