Slip the leash of ordinariness with a ground-churning driving extravaganza. Discover the secrets of stunt driving with mad, bad tricks such as high-speed parallel parking, handbrake turns and two-wheeling. Next, climb into the 12-ton Thundertrax, the mighty tank once used by the armed forces as an FV 432 armoured personnel carrier. Lovingly refurbished and fitted with a V8 Perkins diesel engine capable of 60 miles an hour, it’s a true thrill to pilot. Take it over a line of scrap cars to prove its raw, destructive power. For the grand finale, take the wheel of a monster truck – either the Bandit or the Slaine – and forge a conquering course over the scrap cars. Throughout, highly-trained staff are on hand to instruct and advise. Don’t hold back!


Selected weekends between July – October.


The session may be cancelled in extreme weather conditions, although this is unlikely as these vehicles can work in all weathers.
