This is a full day (from 9:30 am to about 3:30 pm) of off-road adventure and fun testing your off road driving skills with a variety of different vehicles. From the small nimble rally karts to the roll caged, dumper truck tyred, trials buggies.
You are placed in a group of four to six participants. After being met by your instructor and booking in you listen to a safety briefing including off road driving technique.
Then it’s out to the activities. Three courses are attempted before a two-course lunch at the local pub, and three after. The day finishes with a debrief and prize giving.
Whether it’s your first time on a quad or you’re an experienced rider, this course will hold your interest. Using a 125cc Yamaha Grizzly ATV, you will be negotiating obstacles such as raised side risers, the rolling road, a steep see-saw and even a limbo bar. But you will need to get around without any mistakes to stay in the lead.
You will be driving a Land Rover 90 or a Daihatsu Fourtrack. The vehicles used on this course have modified suspension, very aggressive tyres and tree protection cages. You will be driving in areas with only inches of space down either side of the vehicle and learn how to respond in situations where ruts can often be severe.
This vehicle is like nothing you have driven before! It has two engines (one on each side). In order to master this crazy machine, you will need to balance the throttles to get the vehicle around the coned course without knocking any of the cones down. Watch out though, too much power and you pop a wheelie.
With your quad skills now finely tuned from the obstacle course, practice time is well and truly over. You will now be riding a 450cc 4x4 Yamaha Kodiak ATV, around a course marked with canes and some extreme natural terrain including branches to duck under 5ft near-vertical drops and steep ascents. However, can you get around without touching or obliterating any of those canes?
This course will challenge your 4x4 skills in a capable, purpose-built, roll caged, trials buggy. The course is marked out with canes and you need to complete the course without making any mistakes which will result in penalty points. The terrain is extreme including 6ft near-vertical drops and driving along a stream bed.
These karts are very different to the small indoor karts you may have driven in the past. Powered by a 400cc Honda engine with rear-wheel drive and rear-wheel brakes. You will need to get the kart round the course faster than anyone else but as you push the envelope harder you move that bit closer to the 360 spin that will cost you vital seconds!
You'll be at the venue for approximately 6 hours.
