for those of you who are not on this mailing list ......
The Camel Trophy, which was also known as “the Olympics of 4×4”, was, without doubt, a stroke of marketing genius. The sight of international groups of Tom Selleck lookalikes plowing the world’s greatest 4WD vehicles across jungles and rivers, and deserts were enough to inspire every schoolboy and his parents while cementing the reputation of the Land Rover Defender in particular (which was the primary vehicle of the 1984 to 1989 events). The event was so spectacularly successful that, thirty years later, it continues to motivate and inspire. The Camel Trophy was a product of the time and could never truly be repeated, but we can still dream.
