Land Rover Contest Goes Galactic
Ever dreamed of going to outer space? Your chance has arrived.
Land Rover just announced its brand new premium compact SUV, the 2015 Discovery Sport. In conjunction with its luxury newcomer, the company has created a “Galactic Discovery” competition via its partnership with Richard Branson’s space-travel venture, Virgin Galactic. And it plans to take four lucky winners to the final frontier.
Contestants are invited to submit a 30 second video or a still image here showing their spirit of adventure, for a chance to win four seats on the first commercial sub-orbital space flight. Yes, that does mean floating like an astronaut at zero gravity, and viewing our home planet from your window in space.
Another of the brand’s ambassadors and adventure aficionado, Bear Grylls, will play a hands-on role in preparing the winning group for their space voyage. So you can be sure to be fully prepared when you cross the stratosphere.
Check out Land Rover’s video of the Discovery Sport, shot at Spaceport America, New Mexico (you guessed it, the takeoff spot for the flight). Your space truckin’ adventure awaits.
