Dont limit yourself to one experience and make more of your day with this three vehicle combination including driving the Alvis CVR(T) Spartan Tank, the Leyland DAF 45/150 and the Dennis Sabre XL Fire Engine.
Alvis CVR(T) Spartan Tank
Drive around in the Spartan Tank, also called the 'sports tank'! Weighing in at 8-tons with impeccable performance from its engine.
The speedy vehicle gets more impressive. You'll be propelled to speeds well over 50mph as a result of its feat of over 200 horsepower.
This beauty built with agility in mind as opposed to brute force holds half of the passengers of its big brother, the FV432 and comes with other interesting characteristics as well such as fingertip steering controls and the ability to go backwards and put that 50mph in reverse!
Leyland DAF 45/150
Go off-roading in military-style. You’ll take the controls of the Leyland DAF 45/150. Your absolute beast of a truck weighs in at just over 6 tonnes, so you’ll know all about the power coming up from that huge diesel engine.
Fully kitted out in your safety gear, your instructor will show you the ropes before you put those special tyres through their paces across the tricky terrain.
Simple to drive, you’ll have mastered the clutch and amazing power steering in no time. The most versatile vehicle in the fleet, these trucks are exceptionally capable over all terrains.
The DAF ‘4 Tonner’ (So-called due to its load capacity) is available in many different guises including, tankers, cranes and troop carriers. These ones are set up as troop carriers with specially designed seating systems designed by the army to seat 14 troops/passengers safely. Come and have a go if you think you’re ready!
Dennis Sable XL Fire Engine
Admire the majesty of the Dennis Sabre, which was the leading fire engine used up until the early 2000s.
Despite its age, this fire engine built from scratch is regarded as the Rolls Royce of fire appliances remains a strong comparison even against more modern options.
Powered by a mighty Cummins 8.2 litre engine and turbocharged with around 250bhp, this beast will having you soaring past the normal motorway speed limits accelerating to high velocities.
At around 12 tonnes fully laden with 1500 litres of water, these statistics are no mean feat. This driving experience involves racing to an emergency call and making a set of challenging manoeuvres, especially in the ‘brick wall test’.
