A few months ago the 1 millionth Land Rover Discovery rolled off the production line and it embarked on an epic trans-continental road trip from Birmigham to Beijing -retracing the route taken by a similar expedition in 1956 and raise £1m for the Red Cross.

The rugged motorcade covered was 8,000 miles through Europe’s oldest cities, a wide variety of terrains and climates, Chernobyl as the first private vehicles to tour the disaster site since the nuclear meltdown there 25 years ago, an array of museums and toured a former Soviet submarine base.
