4x4 Driving Experience Taster Package

Get behind the wheel of a custom built 4X4 vehicle for an extreme off road driving experience in Melbourne. The taster package includes a 30 minute session with a professional driver to learn how to drive these massive beasts featuring V8 engines, four wheel steering and huge tyres to navigate around the tracks. The passenger lap with a professional driver is a teaser of what lies ahead. Next, it's your turn to sit in the driver seat and take on one of these challenging off road courses. You can bring a passenger along to share the heart racing experience with you or else they can watch all the action from a spectator viewing area.
