There is no feeling like that of being behind the controls of a 50-ton armoured tank, knowing that whatever comes in front of you will be squashed like a bug hitting a windscreen. These incredible machines are built for war and are an unstoppable force to be reckoned with.
Trackdays.co.uk is offering you the opportunity to take control of these monstrous behemoths and experience the power, strength and thrill these machines can provide.
We have a variety of tanks available across the country. You could drive the mighty Chieftain main battle tank weighing in at 55 tons of armoured steel. This formidable tank will go anywhere it wants to and we will let you crush an ordinary family saloon in this incredible war machine. Alternatively, you could get behind the wheel of a Humvee, America’s answer to the humble Land Rover, or a Lance Missile Carrier.
Tank driving experiences let you power your way across varied terrain, taking target practice or even taking part in a tank battle for the ultimate tank driving thrill, where you will be required to take down targets with 40mm paintballs. What can be more fun than that?
You will be joined by an experienced instructor on all our tank driving experiences, who will help you get to grips with your vehicle of choice, ensuring you have the most amount of fun possible while remaining safe.
Contrary to popular belief it is actually quite easy to drive a tank – some might even find it easier than driving a car!
There aren't many controls required, just some foot and hand pedals are all you really need to manoeuvre these large metal war machines.
Once you are confident behind the controls you will get the chance to experience driving by periscope as the hatch is closed and you are encased in your 20cm thick armoured shell. While being the most challenging way to drive, this is also as close as you can get to being in a real battle.
Above you will find all of our awesome packages which make great gifts for any military enthusiast. You can order a 10-month gift voucher or book directly onto a date.
