Tank Driving

Tank Driving

Sign up for tank driving and give your best mate a killer Birmingham stag do! If you’ve done karting and want something bigger, driving a decommissioned tank will do the trick. Everything about this activity is designed to give you the most realistic military experience possible. The FV432 is a tank used by the Army. The location is a former bombing range in countryside near Leicester and Birmingham. Hell, you even get proper tank suits and helmets, plus a headset so the instructor can talk to you when you’re driving the tank!

Pay attention, soldier! Get the lowdown on the FV432. Stay focused during the briefing because you’ll need all the info for the main event: taking the tank round the track without the instructor. He’ll keep in touch with you on the headset but the actual operation of the tank is in your hands. Can you rise to the challenge? The hatch is open for your first lap but the instructor will shut it for your second. Playtime is over. Driving a tank with only a periscope to see through is for professionals only!
