Head to Bicester for a taste of incredible tank driving! Be met and welcomed by an experienced instructor, before meeting the turreted monster you’ll be driving. Take control of either a 15-tonne 1960s FV432 or a 1980s CVRT Spartan which is still used by the British army today and capable of reaching speeds of up to 60 mph. Steer the tank on both grass and tarmac and get the roaring beast up to its top speed. For a full twenty five minutes of one to one instruction, feel the power of commanding a tank during this exciting and very different driving experience.


At least one weekday or weekend date a month throughout the year.


Driving is only ever cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. snow or ice) which would make driving dangerous.
