After a long season of competing in a number of events that saw the Defender Challenge travel around the UK, the final round was held in the Forrest Estate north of Castle Douglas.
11 Defender Challenge Teams and the 110 V6 Double cab took to part in the last round of the 2015 season. German television stars Niki Schelle and Mathias Malmedie from Grip TV drove the Land Rover Media Car. Ollie Marriage and Quin Evans took to the stages in the 110 Double Cab finishing in 14. place overall.
Team Sturgess’ Edd Cobley and John Tomley lead from the start with Lookers’ Gareth Caruthers and Fraser Ward, from the Navigator selection weekend held in October. Team Northern Ireland and Palmer battled for third position throughout the first day until a mistake from Team Northern Ireland saw Team Palmer through to third.
