About the experience

Now is your chance to both discover over 25 acres of Northamptonshire countryside surrounding Rockingham Castle and get to grips with driving a four wheel drive off roader like a pro! This half day session with 1:1 tuition is held in the grounds surrounding Rockingham Castle near Corby in Northamptonshire, at one of the longest running 4x4 off roader centres of its kind. Its founder, and your instructor for the half day, is Vince, who is very proficient and has years of experience driving 4x4 Off Road vehicles in all manner of tight situations. If you're going to be learning from anybody, he's the best man for the job. Your session will last approximately 2 ½ hours, in which time you'll be getting to grips with learning and mastering the basics of driving a four wheel drive vehicle - the Land Rover Defender 110 - off grid, and tackling all manner of challenging terrains: ditches, side slopes, deep troughs and steep downhill gradients, with plenty of mud and water along the way - including a twisty, twiny, tree lined part of the driving route known as the ominous sounding Death Valley. And it won't take long to discover why it's so named! Those looking for an exciting opportunity to get driving off-road in the East Midlands would be well advised to book onto this incredible experience.
