As more and more of the vehicles used in the 2003 and 2006 Land Rover G4 Challenges made their way into private hands, many owners started to correspond with each other via other Clubs, and it quickly became apparent that this was an ideal opportunity to join together to share information. Early in 2007, following articles that appeared in several Land Rover magazines, a small number of these enthusiasts got together and started work on building the framework for an organisation. The Club's first public outing was at The Heritage Centre in Gaydon during May 2007, and were immediately warmly welcomed by other groups, as well as other visitors to Gaydon who have since joined the Forum. A second appearance a week later at the LRM Spring Adventure in Driffield proved that the club was here to stay with yet more people asking for details about membership.
Since those early days the club has seen the excitement of the 2009 event build up and then the eventual disappointment of the 2009 cancelled event. However, as those vehicles were released by Land Rover, enthusiasts quickly snapped them up and joined the club thus providing a rich history to the overall 3 events. Whether there will be another G4 event remains to be seen. Since Land Rovers promotion of the branding has taken two different directions for the Land Rover brand (Defender, Freelander, Discovery) and Range Rover brand (FFR, Sport, Evoque), it is unlikely that the G4 Challenge will continue in its past form.
