Off-road driving for youngsters at Duncombe Park
1:47pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
A NEW driving initiative for youngsters is coming to the region.
Land Rover are bringing their Start Off-Road scheme to Duncombe Park, near Helmsley in North Yorkshire, starting this Sunday, October 27.
The scheme allows 11to 17-year-olds to get behind the wheel of a Range Rover Evoque and experience true off-road driving, teaching them skills and techniques that they can go on to utilise throughout their future years both on and off road.
Participants have the chance to experience driving techniques including basics such as steering, braking and reversing, as well as more advanced skills such as climbing and descending hills, crossing ditches and ridges, negotiating ruts, wet grass and mud, and even crossing water.
Each vehicle is fitted with dual controls for safety as well as an automatic gearbox, and a dedicated team of instructors are on hand to take participants through every scenario. Parents can also take part in the activity.
The event will be coming to Duncombe Park once a month up to next June and for full details visit http://startoff-road.com/
