Land Rover Legends return in June 2021

The Land Rover Legends will return in 2021 at Thruxton Circuit in Hampshire, with new categories and Summer date of 12th and 13th June. Following the disappointment of so many events being either completely shelved or postponed, the Land Rover Legends team announced the event would return in the summer of 2021 in a Covid safe environment.

Taking place at the historic WW2 airfield that once was RAF Thruxton, Land Rover Legends is a ‘mud-pluggers’ heaven welcoming all enthusiasts and showcasing the very best examples of the marque, including several rare and unusual vehicles from the Dunsfold Collection, a founding partner of the event.

The venue offers extensive visitor facilities, including the new Thruxton Centre, a dedicated campsite, a kart track, a skid pan – and a superb 4×4 course on-site, which will be open throughout the weekend.

Richard Grafton, Land Rover Legends Event Director:
With 2021 still likely to present many challenges for event organisers, we are delighted to be working with the highly experienced Thruxton team to put on a safe and welcoming event at such an exciting venue. We have all been missing the opportunity to get together and share our passion for Land Rovers, and we are planning to make this the great reunion of the year. We will be firming up the details as 2021 unfolds but for now, I would urge everyone to save the date and book with confidence, safe in the knowledge that should visitors not be allowed at the event due to Covid-19 restrictions, they will have the option for a full refund or to transfer their tickets.

Land Rovers racing to the rescue
With the Thruxton Historic race meeting running alongside Land Rover Legends, visitors will also need to keep an eye out for some special Land Rovers playing their part in the running of the race meeting, providing recovery and shuttle services for drivers and officials, as well as taking part in the Land Rover parade on the start/finish line!
