We may not be currently building cars but before shutdown we caught up with some customers who were delighted with the cars we'd built them. Over the next couple of weeks we'll be sharing their stories...
This Valentine’s Day we met up with Robin Davis from North Bristol, who was visiting the plant to see his third Discovery Sport being built. Unfortunately, due to a stop in production Robin was going to miss his car, so the team decided to pull out all the stops to give him a special behind the scenes tour that the public don’t usually get to see!
Before he set off on the tour we had a quick chat with him to find out about his love affair with Jaguar Land Rover…
As mentioned this is his third Discovery Sport, when he bought his first one he proudly told us that he was the third person in the country to own one. He said there was a few months where he felt like a bit of a superstar as no one had a car like his and people would stop him to ask about it and get a closer look!
The main feature on the new car that Robin is looking forward to testing out is the wade sensing. He laughed as he told us, “There’s a back road near where I live that always gets flooded and I can’t wait to get the new car and use the wade sensing to see how deep it goes!”
Robin is a bit of an action man himself, having worked in mountain rescue and he also flies planes, so he is definitely not adverse to some off-roading in his car having visited Eastnor an impressive eight times! His first adventure in his new car will be a holiday in the Lake District with his wife and two children.
We hope they have a great time and have many more adventures in their new car!
