Craig Dutton Q&A

How did your passion for Land Rovers start?

I have loved Land Rovers and wanted to own one for a very long time but my passion was ignited when I shot a Mountain Bike event called Tour de Tuli where the Land Rover Owners Club was assisting. Seeing those Land Rovers drive through the Limpopo river started a hunger for owning Land Rovers that would never be satisfied.

What was the first Land Rover you owned?

Discovery 1 300tdi

How many Land Rovers have you owned?

7

Do your Land Rovers have a name? If so, what is the name?

I never got around to naming my first 4 Landys but my latest Landys are: Mac the 300tdi 90, Andy the Puma 2.2 110 and Dorris the Disco 4

What is your most memorable Land Rover moment?

My most memorable Land Rover moment will be when my wife and I organised the 2012 Land Festival (we actually did another 3 Landy Festivals after that) which featured a convoy of 1006 Land Rovers that was 24 km long. We attempted to break the Guinnes World Record (which was 347 at the time) but didn’t get the record because of technicalities. We still had 1006 Land Rovers in a convoy.. That was a big day!

What is your favourite accessory on your Land Rover and why?

These days now that I live in Scotland, I love the pop-top roof and diesel heater.

When ever I climb into my Landy it’s like visiting a best friend. Just being around my Land Rover (or seeing a Land Rover on the road) lifts my mood.
