Dig deep climb high and grip that 4×4 Land Rover steering wheel tight – that’s what this Dorset Off Road experience is all about! Driving around some of the toughest off roading terrain you can find in Dorset this place has all the ingredients for a great session of 4x4ing.
This 4×4 centre is located in between Dorchester and Weymouth on a site that’s easily accessible from the A354 and the A35. But once you’ve left that smooth-running tarmac of the public roads behind you’ll suddenly feel like you’re going on safari here in Dorset as you survey the expanse of the purpose-built off road run in front of you on your pre-experience walkabout. There’s long grass muddy bits rutted bits and hits and drops to tackle.
At this point you might well be wondering if you’ll be able to conquer this tricky Dorset territory. Well luckily for you you have some of the best cars in the business to drive and some very experienced off roading instructors too. We are particularly fond of Poppy the bright red Land Rover Discovery. She may have been around the block a few times and clocked up a fair few miles in her off road career but this 4×4 is a trustworthy companion – and she certainly looks the part with a handy winch fitted to the front bull bar.
What’s more as soon as you’re safely belted up in the driver’s seat you’ll realise the Landy gives you excellent all-round vision enabling you to avoid those ‘tree-trunk in blind spot’ moments. It still takes a fair amount of spatial awareness to be able to judge exactly where you and the car are on the trails and this is where your instructor comes in handy. They know the route and the vehicle really well so listen out for their hints and tips to help you get round the course in a clean sweep!
