Two laps, with the hatch open and in battle conditions
MUST be booked and taken by 30 September 2017
Experience the sheer might, power and dominance of a mighty FV432 tank with this fun-fuelled experience in Leicestershire. On arrival, meet the crew and instructor and change into a uniform and helmet, ready for a briefing on this beast of a vehicle. Then it's time to board the tank and, among the group, take it in turns to drive two laps of a specially designed course, on what was once a World War II bombing range. Drive one lap with the hatch open and another looking through the periscope under battle conditions. When it's not your turn to drive, enjoy the ride from the turret! Afterwards, visit the museum displaying an incredible collection of military vehicles.
Sundays and selected Wednesdays from April to September, running every hour between 10am - 4pm. MUST be booked and taken by 30 September 2017.
