22-03-2024: NOW AVAILABLE: Global Roamer SS overdrive for Series Landrover

One of the most usefull accessories to fit on a Series Landrover is on our opinion an overdrive. They make the vehicle more usefull; better to drive on motorways and putting less stress on engine and drivetrain. But the old Fairey or Superwinch units are hard to find by now and most of them had a hard and long live; are noisey; and need expensive rebuilds. Roamerdrive made or more rugged overdrive with the same setup as the Fairey/Superwinch did. 

The ROAMERDRIVE provides an extra set of gear ratios 28% higher than standard. This makes the Land Rover quieter and more economical to drive at highway speeds and effectively doubles the range of gears available to the driver.

On highways with the overdrive engaged, your Land Rover will lope along with engine revolutions reduced by 28% while saving fuel, reducing drive line wear and resulting in much quieter more relaxed highway driving.

23 t/m 25-6-2023: Land Rover 75th Anniverseray @ Packington Hall Estate.

This event was organised by the Land Rover Series One Club (LRSOC) and, as with previous anniversary events, we wanted to participate again. We left South Limburg with 4 Series 1s to cross to Harwich via the Hook of Holland and drive from there to Packington. The event took place at the Packington Estate close to the Land Rover factory. Back in 1948, Rover used the grounds of this estate to test the Land Rover and take photos for publications and leaflets. Hence a nice link to history. Around 400 Land Rover Series 1s were present at the event. There were several scenic drives, some including ford crossing. And on Saturday afternoon, there was a line-up of the vehicles present. A special event in a special setting. 

After the weekend, the same route home was driven again. Covered a total of 1200km with the 4 cars.
