Northampton Tank Driving Military Day

Drive at least 4 mammoth military vehicles, and try your hand at shooting and survival during this 9 hour military day of tank driving, gun shooting madness in Northamptonshire!

Tank Driving Experience Days: This is the ultimate in tank driving experiences, a guaranteed military day of mayhem. You will get behind the wheel of at least 4 military monsters as you join the army for a day, and blast your way around 100 acres of ideal Northamptonshire countryside. Split into teams with the other participants, you will compete in 6 events including tank driving, mortar firing, and clay pigeon shooting.

Over a full 9 hour day, you will have as much army experience as you can handle - from talks on weaponry and survival skills through to navigating booby trapped woodland, and - of course - driving the magnificent military vehicles. This really is a battle - the best driver of the day will win the chance to crush a family-sized car in a 56tonne Chieftain tank, as his/her team mates and spectators come along for the ride!

On this tank driving military day, recruits will 'fall-in' bright and early for registration. While everyone is getting suited and booted, there will be passenger rides given for both recruits and spectators. Throughout this military day of madness, you will
  • Drive at least 4 massive military vehicles, from a range including a Russian Grozdilka, 432 armoured personnel carrier, 6x6 skid steer supacat, and an American Lance nuclear missile launcher.

  • Spend an hour exploring an armoury that houses 100s of weapons, from today's rocket propelled grenade launchers, MP5s and AK47s right back to the flintlock muskets and pistols used in the 17th Century. Your guide is an ex-army sniper or mercenary, fully qualified to answer all your questions.

  • Take to the woods for an hour of survival skills training with an expert guide.

  • Have a go at Clay pigeon shooting, using 12 bore shotguns.

  • Try your hand shooting flintlock muskets and being part of a mortar crew

Refreshments are included all day along with a very good hot lunch, sometimes themed.

The best driver on the tank driving day gets to run over a family saloon in a 56 ton chieftain battle tanks!
