Taggarts helps to make second Defender Jam a roaring success

Taggarts Land Rover has helped to celebrate 70 years of Land Rover at the ultimate event for fans of the brand, Defender Jam.

The one-day festival took place on Saturday at Monachyle Mhor and saw Scotland’s top Land Rover specialists, including staff from Taggarts Land Rover, talk to enthusiasts as well as display the very latest models.

Taggarts Land Rover, which is part of the Lookers group and has two dealerships in Glasgow and one in Motherwell, showcased the Range Rover Velar, Range Rover Evoque, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Sport SVR and the Land Rover Discovery.

As well as giving those in attendance the chance to buy a wide range of parts and merchandise, the event also featured street art and off-roading, as well as live music in the evening.

Staff also mingled with enthusiasts, many of which had brought their own precious cars to the event.

Defender Jam is one of Scotland’s newest festivals and was launched last year by DJ Martyn Henderson who wanted to combine his love of music and passion for Land Rovers.

A raffle was held on the day to raise money for the Community Treatment Centre for Brain Injury in Glasgow, a centre close to Martyn’s heart after he himself suffered a brain haemorrhage as a result of a fall five years ago.

Bob Grant, Lookers Land Rover Franchise Director, said: “We were immensely proud to be involved in the second Defender Jam festival and enjoyed meeting up with the Land Rover community, especially during the brand’s 70-year anniversary. It was a fantastic event and I hope it continues to delight enthusiasts and families for many years to come.”

Martyn said: “I would like to thank Taggarts Land Rover and all our supporters for helping us make Defender Jam 2018 such a huge success. The Land Rover community is very passionate so it’s fantastic that we are able to provide such an entertaining means for them to share their experiences.”
