Chance to see a re-engineered Defender up close at open day

Visitors to the 2018 open day check out the vehicles on Twisted Automotive's forecourt.

Land Rover Defender specialist Twisted will once again be opening its gates this summer, welcoming hundreds of fans and families to its forecourt to gain an exclusive insight into what goes into the making of a Twisted vehicle.

This year’s open day, at Twisted’s Thirsk HQ, takes place on Saturday 27th July, when limited edition full-build and part-build vehicles from the ‘Remake History’ collection will be among the attractions.

Twisted purchased this final batch of Defender vehicles to come off the JLR production line in 2016. Build slots were made available in January 2019 to mark three years since the end of Land Rover production. The collection includes the Twisted Classic Series II, Classic Series IIA, Lightweight, Classic Series III and Stage One V8.

This year’s open day provides a great opportunity to find out more about the business, with members of the Twisted team on hand to give tours of the workshop and answer questions about the build process.

The gates open at 10am and the fun continues until 4pm. The event is free to attend without a ticket – and it promises to be a great day out for all the family. There will be food and drink available on site, as well as a DJ and entertainment throughout the day. There is plenty of on-street parking around the site.

Twisted Automotive managing director Charles Fawcett said: “Every year we look forward to hosting an open day for customers, fans and local residents and we’re particularly excited this year due to the momentous ‘Remake History’ collection which will be a dream to view for Defender enthusiasts.

“We relish this opportunity to bring local communities together, providing a wonderful day out for all the family while celebrating automotive excellence. Last year was our highest attendance yet and we would love to welcome faces old and new to make this the biggest and best open day yet.”
