Muddy Great Start Sussex

Muddy Great Start Sussex

Three is the magic number when it comes to this wild and wacky 4×4 Sussex experience where you drive a trio of off road vehicles. Not just your ordinary off road trek this action-packed bumper selection of all-terrain vehicles sees you behind the wheel of two modified Land Rovers and a purpose-built fully-caged 4×4 trials buggy.

The session starts gently with the Sussex grounds offering a ‘Meadow Meander’ in your first Landy. There are slopes mud and woodland obstacles to overcome making it the ideal introduction to off-roading. Then we crank up the heat in another modified Land Rover for the ‘Jungle Run’ – ploughing headlong through thick undergrowth catching glimpses of daylight as you rollick your way through the wilderness. Forget Sussex – it’s like 4x4ing in the Amazon Rainforest!

For the grand finale you’re bundled into a 4×4 trials buggy for Sussex’s ultimate off-road challenge going where no standard 4×4 would dare to go. This purpose-built hair-raising and occasionally vertigo-inducing route includes driving along a stream bed and overcoming a 6ft drop that’s pretty much vertical. You need to complete the marked-out course making as few mistakes and therefore amassing as fewer penalties as possible – not as easy as it sounds!

All 4×4 sessions in Sussex begin with a safety talk and a brief introduction to 4×4 driving. You’ll be accompanied by an experienced instructor from the Sussex centre at all times who will guide you through the technical difficulties of off-roading as well as ensuring you don’t make any major mistakes.

For the duration of the activity you’ll be with a maximum of two other people to make a group of three. You all get equal time driving the 4×4 vehicles but if you’d rather be with people you know get a couple of friends or family members involved and turn the day into a friendly competition.

This two-hour course is a brilliant and engaging way of introducing off-road driving to novices with bags of excitement and tricky obstacles requiring all your nerve and determination. Because of the stepped levels of difficulty this is great for experienced drivers as well as anyone wanting to improve their on- and off-road confidence. Get yourself in gear for this 4×4 Sussex session and be prepared for not one but three bumpy drives!

Extreme 4×4 in Somerset

Extreme 4×4 in Somerset

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!

Ex-Army DAF Truck Driving Milton Keynes

Ex-Army DAF Truck Driving Milton Keynes

Stand to attention – this is army truck driving in Milton Keynes for two! You’ll be totally de-mob happy driving this genuine army truck around a very tricky off road course. It’s going to test your skills to the max but this truck takes everything in its stride. Will you?

This 1993 Leyland DAF truck is ex-MoD. Having served with the Ministry of Defence who knows what tales this truck could tell if it could talk. What we can tell you is that it’s four wheel drive it’s rugged and it weighs a hefty eight tons. Just getting up and into the cab is quite an adventure…

What you’ll immediately notice when you’re in the cab of this army truck is how high up you are. What you might not realise straight away is that unlike a car you’re sitting forward of the front wheels. That’s called forward control and when you’re tackling steep drops that makes you feel like you’re literally on the edge!

With plenty of room up front in the cab your instructor will be sitting in the middle seat. That leaves the driver’s seat and the other passenger seat for you two. These vouchers are for a 40-minute drive time so you can share the actual driving between you or just have one of you in the hot-seat. When you’re not driving you’ll be passenger.

So what sort of terrain will you be tackling with this army truck in Milton Keynes? Well it’s possibly the roughest toughest terrain you’ve ever seen. Don’t be surprised if the mud and water starts splashing up to the door handles – it’s that sort of track.

There’s plenty of room to thunder around in the truck as the Hounslow Estate just outside Bletchley covers over 800 acres with lakes woodland fields and tracks all around. What’s more there’s no previous experience needed. As long as you can drive a manual car and have a driving licence you can drive this ex-Ministry of Defence vehicle.

We love the flexibility of these vouchers and the fact that they are run on an exclusive basis for the two of you. You’ll feel like you’re in the middle of military field operation when you go Army truck driving – yet you’re just 10-minutes from central Milton Keynes!

Silverstone Off-Road Driving Challenge

Silverstone Off-Road Driving Challenge

Silverstone. 4×4. Mud. Water. Surely all the essential ingredients for the perfect off road drive? This experience has been meticulously designed to be a proper challenge in a proper 4×4 vehicle. No pottering around here you’ll be seriously going for it!

Your trusty steed for the drive is a Suzuki Vitara. This is no showroom dweller this is a front-line fighter complete with extended air intake winch on the front grille and full harness to keep you in the seat. Prepare yourself for the best bumpy ride of your life as you tackle this tricky terrain.

The Silverstone team has certainly come up trumps when it comes to devising the ideal 4×4 circuit to maximise the off-roading fun. The course is divided into five intertwining sections each with its own set of challenges. And we can tell you now you’ll need your wits about you all the way.

From going sideways and ramping it up impossibly steep slopes to sliding back down them the other side it’s ‘heart-in-the-mouth’ stuff. Believe in yourself believe in your Suzuki and do it. Of course your instructor will be beside you at all times to encourage give advice and get you round the course.

A highlight for many on this Silverstone 4×4 course is the see-saw. Brilliantly created out of a trailer you’ll be perched at 1.5m above the ground trying to just give it enough gas to get on the thing without overshooting spectacularly. Then it’s all about finding the pivot point to tip you gently over so you can drive off it. It’s a tricky one and you love it!

And a little heads up for you. As you’re driving through the water troughs watch out for what’s beneath you. You can’t see anything but they’re filled with ruts and potholes to try and put you and your car off balance. Let’s just hope you don’t stall. And whatever you do don’t open the doors when the water’s up to the door handles…

With lots of deep water sticky mud and steep gradients we think you’ll love this 4×4 session at Silverstone. It’s a really well thought out course and it’s great to be using a vehicle that loves the rough and tumble of the real off road world. Are you up for the challenge?
