Classic Military Vehicle Driving Day In Dorset

Take control of three powerful military vehicles from the 50's and 60's, manoeuvring round a rough track in the Dorset countryside.

Price for 1 participant

Military vehicles have come a long way in the last seventy years. Whereas now the Army uses the sleek FV4034 Challenger 2 and the speedy FV510 Warrior, in the good old days there was none of the fancy technology we have now. Instead, drivers had to use brute force to control these utilitarian machines. With the Military Vehicle Driving Day experience in Dorset, you'll have the opportunity to sit behind three heavyweight military vehicles from the 1950's and 60's, feeling exactly what the soldiers of years gone by experienced during battle. 

The military driving day begins on arrival at the track, where you'll greet your instructor and be introduced to the rest of the group. Your first drive will involve a short familiarisation loop to get you used to the controls, before hitting the circuit for a full 10/15 minute lap. Once everyone has had a turn, you'll swap back and drive the lap again, allowing plenty of time to fully appreciate the vehicles and the burly power at your fingertips. Once the two laps are completed, you'll repeat the process with the two other vehicles! Throughout the session you'll get behind the wheel of an Austin Champ Jeep with a Rolls Royce 4l engine and mounted Bren gun, a Land Rover 101 Forward Control ex artillery tractor, and an Humber Armored Personnel Carrier mark 1. 

This driving experience is perfect for fans of unusual vehicles, or history buffs who want to see what life was like as a 1950's member of the British Army. A great driving gift for dads, or just as a totally unique way to spend a morning in the countryside!
