11 - 17 year olds behind the steering wheel with Top Gear
Take a Range Rover Evoque off road
Drive the Top Gear off road course for 60 minutes
Enjoy touring the Top Gear studio
Ideal for young Top Gear enthusiasts aching to get behind the wheel of a car but who are not quite old enough, this extended off road track experience is perfect for fuelling the love of cars. The experience teaches youngsters all the basics of car control, as they drive around the a challenging off-road course for a full hour in an automatic Range Rover Evoque, accompanied by an experienced instructor. Share the magic as an adult can even sit in the car to enjoy the ride and watch with pride as the young driver gets a taste of motoring for the very first time. Who knows, they could even be The Stig of the future (hopefully with better music taste though). Afterwards feel free to wander around the Top Gear studio at your leisure.
