Eastnor Castle and Land Rover: 50 Years of History

Land Rover celebrates 50 years this month for use of Eastnor Castle as a basis for testing and development.

"Lost" in the county of Herefordshire, an area absolutely stunningly beautiful Eastnor Castle was chosen in 1961 by Land Rover as a basis for demonstrating the quality of their vehicles. Half a century later, Eastnor Castle continues to have a key role in researching and developing new models of off-road brand, continuing to highlight the qualities of the Land Rover 4x4.

Remember those 50 years of Land Rover Eastnor Castle made ​​me remember my 25 year career and the enormous pleasure it was to this place, a true paradise for lovers of off-road. Kilometers of tracks are muddy, hard floors, passages ford, absolutely incredible ups and downs, narrow paths, finally, a true playground for those who like to ride off road.

Eastnor Castle was there in that bright Land Rover technicians have developed technologies that still remain at the forefront and gives to the models of English house owned by Tata, the title of "the best 4x4xFar", ie, all the best -road by a large margin.

We speak of the anti-lock brakes designed for walking on slippery surfaces and, above all, mud and ice, the adjustable air suspension, electronic traction control for slippery conditions, the Hill Descent Control (downhill descent control) and the famous Terrain Response, the system with several programs that adapt to the conditions of the terrain traction.
