What Can I Expect

Get kitted up and ready for madcap military driving experiences in Leicestershire! Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to trundle around the countryside near Husband's Bosworth, just south of Leicester, in your pick of heavy and medium-weight military tanks and vehicles.

At this venue there's always a full fleet of armoured military vehicles ready and waiting to be driven. And one of them will catch your eye straight away - the FV432. This armoured personnel carrier is always a customer favourite. Starting up those huge Rolls Royce engines certainly gets your attention. You will love the aggressive driving style of this tank - and you can even reach speeds of up to 32mph. That's seriously rockin' for a tank!

Lots of soldiers learn to drive heavy trucks in the military and this experience gives you the chance to have a go in a DAF army truck. You used to see a lot of these trucks on the roads, with a separate cab and metal-barriered rear hold that was usually covered up in a khaki coloured tarpaulin. They are resilient, rugged and have impressive off road capabilities as, despite their size, they are 4x4.

The BV206 Hagglund (also known as the Bandvagn 206) is an essential vehicle for the arctic conditions in snow-covered Nordic countries (and Leicestershire, of course!). Quite frankly, they look funny as there are two parts; a driver's cab with rear seats and a separate trailer attached. Both parts are articulated, so the Hagglund manages to keep contact over very rough terrain, yet the ground pressure is low enough it can rumble through snow without sinking. A fine piece of military engineering, we're sure you will have seen nothing like the BV206.

The fire truck is pretty unusual too. It's a cumbersome piece of kit and the driver's seat is in a central position, so it feels really different to drive. And last but not least here in Leicestershire, is the ex-military Land Rover. Liveried up in battlefield ambulance style, this is the sort of work the faithful Landy was built for. It's sure, stable and nimble too.

Choose the ‘Military Driving Experience' in Leicestershire and you'll get to drive two vehicles, with a total time behind the wheel of around 40 minutes. Upgrade to the ‘Ultimate Experience'  and you will drive three vehicles for a total of around 60 minutes. No matter which heavyweight military vehicles and trucks you choose, you'll love the special 1.2 mile mud-filled course at this challenging military driving site in Leicestershire.
