What can I expect on the day
Realise a dream with this exhilarating automatic lorry driving experience at your choice of venue in York, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire or Surrey. No need for a special LGV driving licence to drive this DAF XF lorry - just climb aboard the cab, grab that Yorkie bar and get truckin'!
If you've seen the Stig's lorry driving cousin the Rig Stig on Top Gear, you'll know just how powerful these articulated lorries are. This DAF XF was built in the UK at Leyland and offers a very large 480bhp and amazing torque worthy of the International Lorry of the Year in 2007. The tractor (the proper lorry driver's term for the cab bit!) will be towing a trailer used for transporting cars, so you'll be manoeuvring a 55ft beast of a lorry on this off-road circuit.
Climb into the cab-over-engine flat nosed tractor unit and you'll notice how comfy it is with air-suspended driver's seat, air conditioning, a sleeper berth and that elevated lorry driver's view of the road. With an fully licenced lorry driver at your side, you'll be negotiating a course of cones and attempting a few reversing moves with your 'convoi exceptionnel' - and remember there's no rear view mirror in the cab, it all has to be done using the side mirrors on the lorry!
Once you've mastered the art of driving a lorry why not try a tank driving
