Keep on trucking’ on this articulated lorry experience! If you’ve ever wanted to drive an artic lorry this is the experience for you. What’s more, this activity has a Gallic flavour, as the artic you’ll be driving is a Renault Magnum!
Scania and Daf might be the the ’big name’ brands in the artic world, but when the Magnum first came out in 1990 it changed the rulebook on lorries and was immediately awarded ’truck of the year’. The first thing that leaps out at you in its froggy style is the height. This tractor head is so high there are three steps to climb before you can get anywhere close to clambering in the cabin.
Word has it that the sign of a good trucker is one who can get back into this cab with a coffee in one hand and not spill a drop! So once you’ve scaled the heights, plonk yourself down in the driver’s seat. It’s like sitting at mission control.
The dashboard’s console wraps around you and you’ve go overhead CB radio and sound systems, as well as overhead lockers for convenient storage. There’s even a fridge as standard. Nice.
However, you won’t be going continental on this artic lorry experience, it’s all about negotiating the specially coned out lorry track. As you can imagine, being so high up gives you a great panoramic view of the route ahead, but when it comes to seeing what’s behind you, that’s a whole different kettle of poisson. What’s more, your truck driving experience will be towing a whopping 55ft long car trailer.
Go on, take a look in your huge side mirrors and you’ll see it. Now try and reverse around that corner! Driving an artic lorry is nothing like your usual hatchback that’s for sure.
With an expert artic driver at your side you will take on this unique lorry sized course. We have three different artic driving venues for you to choose from, so you can take you pick from Lincolnshire, Essex or Wales. Each articulated lorry experience gives you 15 to 20 minutes at the wheel of the Magnum.
As these sessions are run as small groups, if there are other artic fans on the activity with you, you can sit on the bench style crew seat behind the driver to witness the artic driving as a passenger when you’re not in the hot seat yourself.
