Title Sponsor

Defender has a longstanding history with Burghley, beginning in the early 1990s as the Official Vehicle Supplier and Land Rover, becoming Title Sponsor in 2005.

Defender has a strong, popular presence at the event, including a vehicle display exhibition stand in the heart of the showground, the Defender Experience area near Lion Bridge, a Defender Owners’ hospitality area, corporate hospitality in a bespoke Defender pavilion, vehicles at feature fences on the Cross Country course and the provision of vehicles for officials who need reliable transport across the undulating terrain.

For those visitors who book a Picnic Parking pitch, a Defender representative will judge the ever-competitive Tailgate Picnic competition on the Saturday morning of the event. For a little inspiration on what to prepare, celebrity chef Simon Rogan gives Zara Tindall a few Tailgate Picnic tips in the following video: https://youtu.be/JrdUux4tZ9w
