Try your hand at some extreme off-road driving with our 4×4 Somerset activity; a specially-designed safari course guaranteed to get your blood pumping and a trials circuit to get your heart racing – and both will get your nerves buzzing!
Whether you’re new to off-roading or you’ve been handling these powerhouse machines for years there is something to challenge everyone at this amazing Somerset venue which is actually on the Bath and West showground site. At this centre you can choose between a 4×4 Safari and the 4×4 Trials session both of which will demand concentration and determination from any driver to succeed.
If you go for the safari you will be driving a standard Land Rover 4×4 vehicle one of the many that make up this impressive Somerset fleet. The obstacle safari is a tight twisting course packed with tricky things like seesaws low-lying branches large rocks and deep gullies for you to explore not to mention the 100ft mud run and the 40ft tunnel!
And much like ski resorts there are green red and black routes here with the aim of having a run to suit all levels of cross-country competency. Of course your instructor is there to guide you and give advice and tips on how to overcome those bumps and drops but fundamentally it’s up to you to get your 4×4 to the end of this demanding Somerset course.
If you fancy trying the off road discipline of trials 4x4ing this Somerset team is offering experiences in modified Land Rover trucks to tackle the gruelling woodland trials course. We are talking competition-prepared V8 Landys that are usually reserved for the pros with full roll cage and upgraded suspension to name but two of the mods on these mud-munching beasts.
As you’ll soon learn trial 4×4 driving is all about throttle control and vehicle positioning as you head straight up wooded banks in the fastest time possible whilst making sure you don’t hit any course markers – or trees for that matter. It’s challenging stuff and makes for a unique twist on the usual 4×4 drive.
However you decide to take on your off-roading exploration we’re sure you and anyone else interested in dirt-track driving will love our 4×4 Somerset packages where you’ll be getting seriously stuck into a pedal-pounding chassis-crunching driving expedition in a proper off roading Landy!
