LAND ROVER CELEBRATES 70 YEARS WITH LARGEST EVER PARADE OF VEHICLES ON GOODWOOD HILL A record parade of 70 Land Rovers, from first prototypes to the latest Range Rover Sport SVR drove the Goodwood Festival of Speed hill in celebration of 70 years of Land Rover. The procession was led by a recreation of the very first Land Rover – a Centre Steer prototype – and ‘HUE 166’; the first Series I pre-production prototype from 1948. Showgoers were able to see all four generations of Range Rover, five generations of Discovery – including the millionth built – and each model in the current range. Round-the-world expedition cars, fire engines, police cars and ex-SAS vehicles all highlighted Land Rover’s dedication to adventure and go-anywhere capability Goodwood, Friday 13th July 2018 – A convoy of 70 rare and important Land Rovers stole the show at Goodwood Festival of Speed yesterday as part of a record parade up the famous Goodwood Hill, celebrating 70 years of Land Rover. The largest ever batch of vehicles to drive up the famous hill were led by a recreation of the very first Land Rover – a Centre Steer prototype – and ‘HUE 166’, the first Series I pre-production prototype from 1948. The Series I was such a success that it spawned the Series II and Series III, an example of which became the millionth Land Rover sold just 28 years after the very first prototype. That millionth

car also appeared in the parade, as part of a group of 25 early Series I, II and III vehicles including fire engines, SAS vehicles, aircraft crash rescue and African expedition heroes – demonstrating the breadth of versatility of Land Rover over the years. All four generations of Range Rover featured in the convoy, including a Trans-Americas Expedition example which crossed the all-but-impassable Darien Gap in 1971 and a 2004 example used by Cheshire Police. Also present was Land Rover’s Discovery nameplate showcased with an example of each of the five generations, including a round-the-world expedition car, the first Discovery ever built and the millionth Discovery to roll off the line. Representing Land Rover’s very latest crop of off-road vehicles was an example of each of the latest line-up; Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Velar, Discovery, Discovery Sport, Evoque and Evoque Convertible. Jaguar Land Rover UK Sales Director, Scott Dicken said: “As we continue to celebrate Land Rover’s 70th Anniversary throughout 2018, today was a real highlight. The vast breadth of vehicles here from fire engines, tow trucks, to expedition vehicles demonstrated the capability that is core to Land Rover name. “I would like to express our gratitude to all the owners, collectors and enthusiasts who joined us today.”

The Importance of Sprayer Testing Everyone will agree that accurate application of pesticides is not only desirable but essential whether for the environment, the consumer or the grower

A

ccurate and targeted use of pesticides is all part of modern agriculture. That’s why back in the mid 90’s the Chemical Application members of the Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA) devised a test for application machinery to make sure it was working as intended. In the early years of 2000 this test became the National Sprayer Testing Scheme as one of the main pillars of the Voluntary Initiative. NSTS now tests around 16,500 machines annually with the test also satisfying the requirements of the Sustainable Use Directive (SUD), which requires that all pesticide application equipment, sprayers, slug pellet applicators, granular applicators etc., need to be tested by 26th November 2016 and at regular intervals thereafter. NSTS is an accepted part of arable agriculture and requirement of the major crop assurance schemes and

supermarket protocols, requiring that farmers and growers have their sprayers inspected annually. This requirement continues with one of the annual tests satisfying the SUD requirements. The NSTS is available through a network of test centres who have qualified examiners available to inspect and confirm the equipment is of the standard required. The test is usually carried out at the machine owner’s premises and at a mutually agreed time. The examiner will charge for the inspection, the cost is commercial at the point of use. Additionally machine owners are free to use their nearest or preferred test centre. The operator or owner of the machine can prepare the sprayer for the test using a test sheet available from the NSTS website. Owners and operators are encouraged to take part in the test and will receive three NRoSO points for doing so. As confirmation of the result of the test the examiner will apply a pass sticker

to the machine and a copy of the test report form will be sent to the owner. Other copies are returned to NSTS Administration where the information is retained on a database of all tested machines. This information is available to Crop Assurance Certification Bodies and others for verification purposes. With the continued threat of more pesticides being lost, now is the time to contribute to accurate and targeted application procedures, NSTS testing helps achieve that. Having a NSTS test will also satisfy the Sustainable Use Directive which requires all sprayers to be tested by 26th November 2016.

T

oyo SUV and 4×4 Tyre Range A new year can mean only one thing as far as Toyo is concerned – new tyres, and 2018 promises to be a big one in terms of new offerings from the world’s foremost off-road tyre supplier. First up, the Open Country M/T, a tyre that’s been designed to be capable and versatile, and evidence of this can be found in its high turn-up, 3-Ply polyester casing. This sports hook shaped blocks and an ‘Attack’ tread design which equates to surprisingly civilised and stable road manners. Open, scalloped shoulder blocks bite into the ground and help to eject mud, snow, and rocks while maintaining off-road traction, whilst the ‘OverThe-Shoulder’ tread pattern (something of a Toyo calling card) offers unparalleled traction in deep mud and snow. Proven on the world’s competition stage, this tyre is the ultimate weapon in the war on poor grip and traction! This year sees the Toyo tyre range evolve yet further, with the ever popular Toyo H/T being replaced by the

66 | Working Farmer | workingfarmer.co.uk

U/T. It’s a tyre which builds upon its predecessor’s impressive spread of capabilities, namely an ability to provide optimal ride comfort, quiet performance and long wear life. That the U/T can deliver so much in so many areas is down to its symmetrical, non-directional tread design, not forgetting its variable pitch tread blocks, a trait which means a significant reduction in road noise. The U/T is every bit as capable when the going gets sloppy though, hence the pair of deep evacuation grooves running its length. These have been carefully optimised to expel standing water and rain at speed, which is brilliant news for those of us who regular encounter such conditions – anyone living in the UK, basically. Full depth sipes go right through the tyre, meaning that mud and snow grip is sustained throughout the wear life of the case. On the edges, multi-wave sipes give low-noise stability in all weathers, augmented by stability ribs in the centre of the tyre to help reduce irregular wear. Suitable for Pickup Trucks, Vans and SUVs, Open Country U/T offers high mileage while providing safe driving in both wet and

dry conditions. 2018 is set to be the year in which the Toyo Open Country AT Plus makes a dent in the off-road tyre market, with the company hoping to build upon the solid foundations laid in 2017, the tyre’s first full year on sale. An aggressive asymmetric tread pattern ticks both form and function boxes, with an open shoulder design allowing easy egress of water and superb stability under duress. Sipes have grooved bottoms to really ‘bite’ into snow and loose surfaces, with a waved pattern ensuring superb stability and exceptional traction. Toyo has long strived to offer a tyre for vehicles of all kinds, which is why it shouldn’t be all that surprising that its SUV range is just as comprehensive as its off-road. Indeed, the firm’s portfolio of tyres suitable for SUVs is unmatched in this sector, with the Proxes T1-Sport SUV and Proxes Sport SUV (dedicated variants of Toyo’s iconic T1 and Proxes Sport tyres) being two of the most capable. Toyo is also able to offer the CF2 SUV and Proxes S/T, both developed with Sports Utility Vehicles in mind and therefore as at home on the school run as they are the British B-road. For more details on the full Toyo Tires range, please click to www.toyo.co.uk
