What Can I Expect

On this driving experience in the North East you’ll be stepping into the combat boots of a military driver, as you pilot a trio of army vehicles. And piloting is the correct term to use here, as this army driving experience takes place at Eshott Airfield at Felton, between Alnwick and Morpeth.

The guys that own and run the airfield undertook a big hangar development project, which meant that they found themselves with rather a lot of earth piled up. So what do you do with it all? Turn it into a pretty nifty off-road course, that’s what! The team has created a superb bespoke course that incorporates all your favourite features, from water splashes and side-slopes, to deep drops and steep hills.

Then they had to purchase a selection of suitable vehicles for having fun out there on their track - and they decided to go very much down the army route. They invested in a Stormer Tank, a DAF T244 army truck and a lovely little Land Rover Tithonus Defender. All three have actual military pedigree, having served their time with various sections of the British Armed Forces.

No retirement for these vehicles though. This army driving experience will see you spend a morning or an afternoon as a military driver, taking each one of them out in turn for a spin. All require different driving skills and all are just great fun to drive. And it’s not the army here, there’s no military protocol, no screaming Sargent Major, just a friendly instructor to encourage you and your machine to successfully negotiate the obstacles you’re tackling.

As well as the excellent terrain and top-notch choice of vehicles, this off road centre in the North East boasts a rather funky basecamp for these experience days. Up-cycled shipping containers have been cleverly integrated into the landscape to provide a designer welcoming building complete with toilets, refreshment area, open decking with views of the runways and space for the vehicles.

If you’re looking for a driving experience in the North East with a military theme, this is the day out for you. You’ll get to have a go at driving a full-tracked vehicle, a big chunky truck and a nippy go-anywhere Landy. All of which are genuine ex-Army, now enjoying life on civvie street in Morpeth!
