Land Rovers are famed for their handling, but this driving experience challenges every piece of conventional wisdom drivers are taught about how to get a vehicle around. A car that steers left when you turn the wheel to the right and vice versa will have even the most competent driver completely disoriented within moments.
Being behind the wheel of this back-to-front car is a chance to learn just how important it is to concentrate when trying something new. It takes a lot of brain power to overcome the urge to steer as normal and participants will need to concentrate as they never have before to keep the car on the track.
This driving experience day starts with a safety briefing and instruction on how to drive this unusual vehicle. For most drivers, the knowledge that they will have to steer in the opposite direction is no help at all when they are behind the wheel, so they will be reassured to have experts on hand to help them master the controls.
Then it’s time for the drivers to get into the Land Rover and discover just how hard it is to keep on course when the steering is reversed. No matter how simple it sounds, steering left to go right and right to go left is a much more complex task than most people’s brains can handle without an awful lot of concentration and focus.
Both participants will get a chance to test their abilities behind the wheel and passengers might find it as disconcerting to watch their partner trying to drive the vehicle as it is for them to have a go themselves. Anyone who enjoys trying something completely different will enjoy this confusing and challenging track day.
