Half Day Tank Driving Experience - Northamptonshire

If you've always dreamed of becoming a solider, cadet or SAS member, this driving experience is the ideal day out for you. You will get to grips with controlling three incredible military vehicles and will leave feeling like a new army recruit.

On this half day experience, you might get the chance to drive a 432 armoured personal carrier, a Russian Gvozdika tank or a Springer ATV (among other options), whilst you are let loose to tackle a tricky course. Under expert guidance, you will learn to manoeuvre the beastly vehicles around lumps, bumps and the course's hardest obstacle - the Margaret Corner...don't worry, all will become clear on the day! Your military vehicle experience also includes an educational element - you'll either attend an insightful lecture, covering the weaponry used (as taught by an ex SAS recruit) or watching a slideshow on woodland patrol. If you are declared the best driver of the day you win the opportunity to drive over and crush an old saloon car - what is even better is your family can come along to and ride on top!

All overalls and helmets will be provided, so you'll really look and feel the part. Be prepared for a day filled with action, adrenaline and activities.
