Xcar explores the competitive world of Land Rover off-road time trials

Ask anyone who's participated in an off-road time trial and they'll likely tell you it's one of the most challenging and entertaining forms of motorsport, but also one of the most accessible. But if you don't have anyone to ask, Xcar has you hooked up.

For their latest installment, the British automotive videographers visited a muddy swatch of UK countryside where a bunch of yahoos in stripped-out, modified, vintage Land Rovers faced off against each other for top honors. The result looks like a heck of a lot of fun, as long as you don't mind getting a little wet and dirty in the process.

While most of the competitors are using vintage machinery, it'll be interesting to see how the upcoming new Defender holds up under such punishing and demanding conditions now that the existing model is being retired. We have a feeling the cost of entry will only be going up...
