With Explore 4×4.

At this year’s Game & Country Fair, Explore 4×4 Ltd will be providing a brand new off road course providing professional 4×4 instruction that enables you to drive off road safely and provides you with challenging new driving skills. 

Perhaps you have your own 4×4, used mainly on road rather than off!  You’d like to know a little more about how it works, and how best it can be used to get you out of those occasional awkward situations.

Maybe you don’t have a 4×4, but have the spirit of adventure, and would like to experience the excitement of off road driving.

Whether your interest in off road driving is for business or pleasure, you’ll find it adventurous, exhilarating and hugely enjoyable!
