Here's one for the tough guys and tank girls: indulge their appetite for destruction with some heavy machinery! Over the course of this full-on driving day out, your loved one becomes our new recruit. After a brief training session, they'll be handed the controls in a Chieftain tank, an armoured personnel carrier and a quad bike. Oh, the instructors at this boot camp are softies at heart - despite some having tales to tell from the Falklands and Gulf Wars.
What happens on the day?
This course runs on Saturdays and some Fridays, and includes free refreshments throughout the session. Obviously drinking and driving isn't allowed when you're behind the wheel of a 55 ton tank though, so don't get too excited. There's also an undercover area with picnic benches and a wood fire that is lit if the weather's not great. A full safety briefing will be provided. The whole experience lasts three and a half hours, taking in the Chieftain 700hp, an Abbot self-propelled field gun, an armoured personnel carrier and a quad bike. Most importantly, there's a Certificate of Achievement at the end. Oh, and toilets are available on site (just as well really).....
