- Brackley (Northamptonshire)
- Price for 1 Participant
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!
