You don't have to be in the army to drive a military truck. The Off Road 4x4 Army Truck Driving Experience gets you behind the wheel of a Leyland DAF T244 GS, one of the most versatile vehicles around. After your welcome, sign on and safety briefing you'll be introduced to the DAF '4 Tonner', a troop carrier with capacity for 14 passengers. Your time behind the wheel will take place on a custom built off-road course and will test your driving skills in a type of vehicle most drivers are unaccustomed to.
Next up you'll meet to the mammoth GKN Sankey FV432 Armoured Personnel Carrier, designed to carry a 12-man crew through conflict zones. Your passenger ride will take place in a much safer environment, though, with the battlefield being swapped for a purpose-built off-road course, giving you the opportunity to see exactly what a 15-tonne lump with caterpillar tracks can do for approximately 20 minutes.
Please allow up to 1.5 hours at the venue.
