A wonderful Driving Experiences Experience near Telford, Shropshire.
Take control of an 18 tonne FV432 Armoured Personnel Carrier and a 7.5 tonne American monster truck in this motoring adventure. After safety briefings, it’s time to let loose. Firstly, learn how to manoeuvre the monster truck known as Mayhem with nitrogen-filled shock absorbers, 66-inch tyres and a growling V8 six-litre 380 bhp engine. Experience the power of the huge wheels as you manipulate this behemoth around the course and drive over cars on a mission of destruction. Then get familiar with the controls of the indestructible tank. Chew up 80 acres of field and mud tracks as you command the metal beast. To finish it’s time for a passenger ride. As the tank tears up the countryside, watch the landscape roll by from out of the mortar doors.
At least one weekday or weekend date a month from March to October.
Driving may be cancelled in extreme weather conditions which would make it dangerous. Don’t worry if it’s raining – these are all-terrain vehicles and a bit of mud and water can make this experience more exhilarating.
Lasts around two and half hours in total including briefings, around 15 minutes driving the monster truck, 15 minutes of tank driving, plus the tank passenger ride.
Briefings are held in groups, but all driving is on a one to one basis.
Spectators can watch the monster truck drive but the tanks are on a separate site. Up to two spectators are welcome to join the tank driver for a fee of £20 each to ride as passengers. Please note that animals are not allowed at the venue.
Dress comfortably and suitably for the weather – be prepared to get muddy! Strong boots are ideal.
Min height is 5′ and max height is 6’4”. Maximum weight is 18 stone. A full British or international manual driving licence must be held for over 12 months and be produced on the day in order to participate.
