About the Family 4x4 Off Road Experience

Bring the whole family and head on to the 4x4 off road facility to find out exactly what an off road vehicle can do. This experience is for two adults (drivers) and up to three passengers (none driving passengers). Both adults (drivers) will rotate around the driving seat.

Driving off road requires a different driving skill compared to our circuit based driving experiences. Patience, caution and controlled aggression are needed as you test both the Land Rover Defender and your own nerve. You will be amazed at what a Land Rover will do.

Sharing the Defender with one other pupil you will initially receive a 15 minute briefing before taking to the course. Learn about axle articulation, approach and departure angles, how to find the best traction, when to and when not to use the brakes, when to use a little throttle and when to really attack an obstacle. All this is great fun and definitely not easy, but hugely satisfying when you get it right. Your passengers will need to hold on tight as the vehicle climbs and descends with you at the wheel.
