Driving enthusiasts in Singapore can look forward to an off-road adventure in the city this weekend at the Above and Beyond Tour Singapore. Held at Temasek Avenue from 9 to 11 November 2018, the tour features custom-made obstacles designed to simulate the challenging terrain of the great outdoors, providing guests a first-hand experience of the signature capabilities and composure of Land Rover vehicles.
Under the guidance of Land Rover Experience instructors, guests will be able to drive their favourite Land Rover vehicles through a bumpy course and side slopes. Designed to simulate a deeply-rutted or rock-strewn ground, the bumpy course will allow participants to appreciate first-hand Land Rover’s Terrain Response® system and remarkably rigid chassis, which enable the vehicle to conquer the most difficult of terrain. The off-road driving experience climaxes on a sideway tilt on the side slope course. At almost a 45° angle, guests will be treated to an unforgettably thrilling experience while witnessing the unsurpassed off-road capability of Land Rover vehicles.
In addition to the simulated off-road experience, participants will also have the opportunity to take on three fun challenges. The first of these is the Ring Fenced challenge, at which participants have three minutes to drive into an enclosed circular space, make a complete 180° turn and exit the course. The second is the Auto Test challenge, which consists of a narrow ‘L’-shaped bend; participants will have three minutes to navigate the course, before having to reverse and return to their initial starting position. The last, entitled ‘What’s Wrong with My Car’, challenges participants to identify missing parts or non-functioning features on a Land Rover display vehicle. The participant with the best overall score this weekend will win an experience for two at the Above and Beyond Tour Grand Finale New Zealand 2019.
Held in February 2019, the Above and Beyond Tour Grand Finale in New Zealand will take the winners from the region on an epic journey from Christchurch to Queenstown. From picturesque and iconic landscapes, little-known routes, and exclusive locations to challenging terrain and intimate opportunities to get to know the Maori culture, the Above and Beyond Tour Grand Finale promises a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
“We are thrilled to have the Above and Beyond Tour Singapore this weekend. It’s a wonderful opportunity for driving enthusiasts to go on an adventure in our city and experience the capabilities and technologies at the heart of Land Rover’s DNA,” says Corinne Chua, General Manager, Jaguar Land Rover, Wearnes Automotive.
