A field on an old airfield in Essex is the location for your tractor drive. A number of handily placed hay bales will create the track that you’ll be negotiating in your trusty John Deere. Climb aboard and get yourself settled in the hydraulic hot seat. Fire up that 4.5l six cylinder engine (!) and get going.
Although mostly used to pull tow and move things a tractor without any attachments can actually shift being capable of up to 40km/h.
