Do you own a unique Defender that has led an interesting life? In a survey being conducted by Land Rover, this is one of the questions being asked of 20,000 Defender owners in the UK.

The iconic Defender has become a long-term favourite with adventurers, explorers, farmers, emergency services, aid organisations and those who need to go anywhere, or carry just about anything. Owners of Defenders are being urged to reveal as much information as possible in 'The Great Defender Survey'.

In doing so, owners will be entered into a prize-draw to win a five-star weekend at Land Rover's home of off-road driving, Eastnor Castle. Two winners and their partners will partake in a variety of off-road driving activities including a drive in one of the first ever Series I Land Rovers from 1948, DEL102, affectionately known as 'Del Boy'.

Named 'the greatest car of all time' by BBC TV's Top Gear, the Defender continues to be the hero in Land Rover's stable of vehicles. To book a test drive contact your local Land Rover dealer or visit
