Grand Prize Option 1

Winners can embark on a Land Rover Weekend Getaway, which includes an overnight stay in Gold Point—a living ghost town in southern Nevada rich in history and excitement. The adventure promises ghost town exploring and lodging in a historic building. Best part is, the winner’s get to spend the weekend driving a Land Rover.

Grand Prize Option 2

The second option is best suited for the day-tripper, and includes an off-roading adventure in a Land Rover, with no overnight stay.
