I brought a car crush event for my other half, John's birthday. I paid extra so I could go and watch, which, to be honest, I wasn't looking forward to. The thought of standing around in the cold really did not appeal. How wrong I was! I was included in everything right from the start. I was taken along, with... More

What a birthday present! 4 different drives, including a 16.5 tonne Russian Godzilla. Musket, mortar and clay pigeon shooting. Interspersed with a couple of interesting classes. And all held together by a fantastic team of knowledgeable and fun guys and girls. My 3 guests including my daughter enjoyed the experience too, all had a drive, good lunch, and again the... More

Couldn't recommend this highly enough, all the guys, and girls, were really friendly and knowledgeable, great fun and a great sense of humour shown by all. And despite the fact I was carrying an injure the guys all tried to make sure I got value for money. A great day and a unique experience if you've never driven tracked vehicles.

Fantastic fun. Would recommend everyone to have a go. Our team included both ages and sexes from 50 year old lady (me) to 19 year old boys and girls and we all just never stopped smiling. I'm still buzzing from the experience

The instructors are great, and you end up doing stuff in huge vehicles that you never imagined an office jockey would end up doing.... More

I was very lucky to have, as a present, a private car crush. I had previously met Nick, but, for this experience, Todd looked after me. Having driven out to the area in a 432 Armoured Personnel Carrier, and following a comprehensive briefing, I had 3 laps at the controls of the 432, then 2 laps in a CET (very... More
