Land Rover’s faith in versatility of their products is such that in the most recent publicity stunt they decided to pit a Range Rover Evoque against one of the best names in British rugby – a sport known in America as football. In this challenge England and Saracens star Owen Farrell took on the Evoque in an all-terrain bleep test.
Said to be the ultimate test of endurance, the bleep test requires not just sheer power, but also great agility.

Farrell completed a bleep test between two fixed points on two different terrains in the unique challenge, gradually increasing the pace to keep time with the ever more frequent bleeps. The inaugural winner of the Anthony Foley Memorial Trophy for the European player of the year, said: “Every sportsman knows bleep tests are one of the toughest tests on the road to peak fitness because there is no hiding place. The bleep test was a great way to challenge myself because the Evoque was relentless.”
