This is a unique and unforgettable experience. Driving some of the world's toughest military vehicles is a thrill you will never forget. When you're in the driver’s seat you can hear the loud engine roaring and any obstacle you come across, be it a steep incline or mud swamp, is easily dealt with. Anything is passable and in these vehicles you will be having the time of your life.
After you have registered there will be pre-instruction and a safety briefing on military vehicle driving before the action begins. Depending on your chosen location, you will be driving some of the following: an Armoured Personnel Carrier, a Chieftain Main Battle Tank, an Abbot Tank, 250cc Honda Quad Bikes, Stalwart 6 Wheel Drive, Snowcat, Sultan command vehicle, an American Humvee, a Pinzgauer 6 wheel drive all terrain troop carrier, a Ferret ML, a BRDM Russian APC, a BV206 Hagglund, a Bedford MJ 4x4 truck or a 4x4 Land Rover.
You will usually spend approximately 10 minutes in each vehicle driving over rough terrain. Programmes, timings and vehicles will vary slightly depending on the location and the availability on the day.
The person driving the car will be required to sign a disclaimer accepting liability in the event of damage to the vehicle. The driver will be given an option to purchase damage waiver cover when booking to minimise their financial exposure should there be an accident. Drivers are under no obligation to purchase this optional waiver. Full details are available at the time of booking.
