This is an introduction to off-road driving for the novice, the unconfident or for those thinking about buying a 4x4.
In the course of a morning or an afternoon, we’ll talk through the fundamentals of how the 4x4 vehicle works and then we’ll teach you the basics of driving across various terrain.
The Experience offers an eye-opening experience to those who have never seen (or felt!) what these amazingly capable vehicles can do. It builds your confidence and teaches you how to read the ‘road’ and tackle different situations as safely as possible.
You are welcome to bring along a passenger who can share the driving experience at no extra cost.
Three different types of experience are available with FarX4
DRIVE A MITSUBISHI OFF ROAD!
The latest L200 Double Cab pick-up is an extremely capable vehicle off tarmac. At Winton Castle, FarX4 has teamed up with Adam Purves of Galashiels to put the L200 through its paces over all manner of off-road obstacles!
In the course of two hours we'll give a brief demo of how the vehicle works, where it will go and how to get the best from it. Then you'll drive under the supervision of the instructor. You'll soon be grinning from ear to ear as the vehicle picks its way over terrain you would think twice about walking on!
