G4

I am sure the answer is something along the lines of the those "duh...duh, duh... duh" hyundai commercials but what does G4 stand for. I was not into Rovers when they started and when I have tried to look it up online. All I find are articles that talk about it like everyone already knows what it means so they don't define it.

The "G" part refers to the reaction most LR fans had when the heard the Camel Trophy was to be cancelled and replaced with this new lifestyle event featuring the Freelander. Everyone pretty much came out with "Gee, that sucks". Hence the G in G4.

Did you read the article he posted? It refers to the "Global Adventure" = G and taking place in "4 Stages" = 4.

I did glance at the article and did see that... but is that actually what it means or is that just an assumption based on the words being handy

Yeah, as far as I know that is what it stands for. I think they actually say so on one of the adventure center DVDs that I have but I'd have to dig through them to find it.
