Event and Persepolis Raid news

Happy New Year from all of us here at Barbour HQ! Here's to a prosperous and healthy 2012 with plenty of 4x4 excitement..

I know things have been a little quiet over here at Barbour news so we are pleased to add a few extra bits and pieces to the website. Now that the new workshops are almost complete a Series Three 4x4 was finished by the end of 2011. The build has been recorded extensively with photographs and these can be viewed in the technical pages.  Louis and Ante have done an incredible job with this Croatian car.

We have also added some photos of the Crapadeuche Trophy 2011 and of the Barbour sponsored Paris Persepolis Paris 2011 raid. The latter being completed succesfully within the same time constraints as the original raid in 1971.

We are looking forward to Morvan TT Deuche in France this year during Easter where we will be taking a 'new' Barbour 4x4 called Fred. This is part owned by Team Barbour and has been saved from rot. It happens to be one of the original Series One cars but doesn't lack any of that awesome ability!
