Unusual Driving Days Out

Most of us know how to drive a car, but this selection of more unusual vehicles will test your motoring mettle! When it comes to being in control of a vehicle, this lot is just a little bit different from your average hatchback. It's going to be a steep learning curve as you are shown the controls of anything from a powerful digger to a heavy steam traction engine.

If we're totally honest we didn't know where else to put these experiences on our website as they are really quite atypical of our bulk of our driving activities. Have a browse, see what takes your fancy and get ready for an unusual day out of driving on the open roads or on the track! Read more...

Unconventional, extraordinary and unique - that's our unusual vehicle section

From comedy cars to classic Routemaster buses - that's our very eclectic collection of unusual vehicles! If you've already driven the rest then it's time to think out of the box and buy them an experience driving something completely different.

Take a look at that Land Rover. It might like look like your average Landy, but try and drive the thing and you'll soon realise it steers in reverse. What's more, you might persuaded to drive blindfolded. Now whilst that doesn't sound like a good idea to us, apparently those who have done it say it certainly adds an unusual twist.

And in a similar vein, there are madcap modified vehicles galore at the incredible Auto Circus. Cars on castors, rallying Reliant Robins and British banger racing at its best. Usually for a driving experience, you will be expected to race the wreck as hard as you can with no restrictions. Get fun.

Harking back to your childhood with some remarkable vehicles

There there's the stuff of childhood dreams. Who hasn't dreamt of driving a classic big, red double decker bus? This is your chance to grab that huge steering wheel and take an original London Routemaster bus for a spin around an airfield coned circuit. And take a look at this clip to see an experience day client demonstrating just how easy it is to slalom in a Routemaster bus.

If it's all about heavy plant machinery, you'll love the diggers, earth movers and dumper trucks. Again, these are vehicles you see on building sites all over the country on a daily basis, but it's not that common to see them offered to the general public. This is one you should definitely book up in advance as it is permanently popular.

This is just a little taster of the fleet of unusual vehicles that are on our books. Have a browse of this rather distinctive section of our website and see what you can dig up!
