Tampa, FL – April 3, 2013 – Land Rover Tampa, home of the Tampa Bay area's favorite luxury SUV Centre, is returning to Raymond James Stadium on April 6 with characteristic style and panache for the 41st Annual $200,000 Gene Mische American Invitational presented by G & C Farm.  A giant hospitality tent will welcome 100 Land Rover Tampa fans to the "Mane" Event Tailgate Party at the Buccaneer's home field alongside the popular Just World International Horseless Show for youngsters starting at 4 PM.  Pony rides, face painters, balloon artists, a petting zoo and the sensational Radio Disney crew will round out the festivities leading up to the most famous night in show jumping: the storied American Invitational.

"The American Invitational is one of our most popular group outings," according to Land Rover Tampa Centre Manager, Jennifer Stals. "The athleticism, power and elegance of these Olympic horses and riders is just unparalleled."

"And right in keeping with the traits so admired in Land Rover vehicles," according to Gina Johnson, sponsor relations coordinator for the American Invitational. "Land Rover truly sets the bar when it comes to a luxury SUV.  No matter the conditions or terrain, you can power through anything and still arrive in perfect style -- even at a black tie event."

Land Rover Tampa guests will enjoy tailgate party fare along with the Mane Event family activities and a special "Chalk Talk" presentation about the American Invitational just before the course walk at 6:00 PM.  Several new Land Rover vehicles will grace the Buccaneer field as part of the jumping track.

"The atmosphere in the Stadium is always super-charged," Johnson said.  "The crowd is divided into cheering sections for the jumpers, and I know one thing for sure -- we'll be bringing the house down in the Land Rover Tampa section!"
