What Can I Expect

The individual tuition offered at this midlands 4x4 centre near Market Harborough ensures you get maximum training time in mastering the art of 4x4 off road driving. This operator is actually one of our longest-serving supplier of 4x4 experiences and this Midlands venue is always popular with IntotheBlue clients.

Vince, who owns and co-ordinates this centre is a font of knowledge for all things 4x4. He's been running his Midlands-based venue for many years and has a huge depth of experience in all types of four wheel drive vehicles in all sorts of environments (and some of them pretty extreme). To give you an idea of the level of skill he has, it's Vince who actually teaches would-be 4x4 instructors.

So what can you expect when you head to the good old Midlands for your 4x4ing session? You will be tackling some serious off-road terrain - ranging from open fields with purpose built challenges to varied woodland trails all spread over a couple of hundred acres of the Midland's finest countryside around Rockingham Castle.

The experience starts with a safety briefing and then it's your turn to take to the wheel. Typically, you will be driving fully prepared Land Rover Defender 110s, although there are usually other vehicle types available on the day as well. You will first be tackling the 4x4 'training ground' at this fine Midlands venue - designed to give you an insight into some of the basic off-road conditions such as crossing ditches, traversing side slips, accelerating through mud and water and tackling 40 degree downhill slopes!

Then it's onto what Vince and his team call the 'White Knuckle Ride' - where it'll be water and mud up to the bonnet of your trusty 4x4 (don't worry, you're not expected to wash the vehicles at the end of your experience!) as you drive through twisting, turning tree-lined tracks towards the scarily-named 'Death Valley'…we'll leave you to discover that one!

If you want to be amazed in the Midlands by a 4x4 this is place to do it. By the end of your experience you will be amazed that you have just driven through terrain that previously you would have thought impassable and discovered the joys that can be had when driving at 5mph in fabulous four wheel drive vehicle.

A really fantastic half day. Everyone was very friendly making us very welcome and the facilities were excellent. Luke, my instructor, was excellent giving clear instructions when demonstrating and when I was driving making the whole experience very enjoyable. I would like to do it all again sometime in the future, next time making a day of it. Highly recommend the experience to anyone.
