Overview

A Lorry State Of Affairs.

If you're lovestruck for trucks or looking for a gift for the driving devotee, it's your trucky day! Our truck driving experience is going to shift you into top gear!

If you've ever suffered from HGV envy, it's time to buckle up Buttercup, because this is your opportunity to experience what it feels like to be king of the road. You'll be driving the absolute Haulage Hulk that is 45 feet long - a mechanic monster with serious clout. With guidance from a qualified HGV instructor, you'll get the chance to take the enormous truck around a purpose-built course; weaving through cones, accelerating through all 16 gears and learning how to reverse the leviathan lorry.

An exciting gift experience for anyone who's ever fantasised about running amok with a truck, or a test of skill for someone who loves to toot their own horn when it comes to bragging about their superior driving skills. It's sure to drive them wild!

Car Chase Heroes. Abingdon

Jacki from Sales July 2019
As a daughter of a commercial fitter I've been around trucks since childhood however never actually driven one. I'd had my eye on this experience for a while and when asked to do it as a 'Tried and Tested by Us' I was so excited.

Booking my experience was simple and Car Chase Heroes confirmed my booking via email, providing all the information I needed for the day.

Friday morning I made the journey to Abingdon in Oxfordshire, taking more notice than usual of the HGVs around me on the M25. Arriving at the army barracks location I could see the truck out on the track along with Optimus Prime and the other supercars and movie cars in the distance. The event was a hive of activity, music playing over the PA system, the sound of engines roaring and names being announced to make their way to the pit areas for briefing.

I queued up to sign in and provide my proof of ID, the female team member was really friendly and was genuinely excited for me to be doing the Truck Driving Experience. I stood and watched for about 20 minutes as the supercars left the pits, while waiting for my name to be announced for my 1.30 slot.

My briefing started as we approached the vehicle and once I'd climbed up the three steps into the cab Paul my instructor talked me through the gears, mirrors and other features before it was seatbelt on and time to turn the rig around and head out onto the track.

Passing Optimus Prime we had time for a quick trucker's sault on the air horns before turning right and taking on the slalom cones. Paul was great at explaining the sight lines and it was surprising how maneuverable the 45ft long trailer was. Amazingly all cones standing we headed further down the track to a cone roundabout, Paul again telling me where to focus my sight to ensure that I pull out far enough so that the trailer followed without clipping the cones (English layout, clockwise and European, anticlockwise!)

Next was the skill I'd been dreading, 'Reversing around a Corner' coordination don't fail me now! Paul told me to line up the back of the trailer with a point in the distance and to keep an eye on the verge. If I wanted the trailer to go left, turn the steering wheel to the right and vice versa. On my second attempt I did it, with perfect distance from the verge. Apparently the best attempt for the day! (I think he was being generous).

Then it was back through the slalom and finishing off an amazing experience back at the pits. I've done driving days where you're whizzing around at speed but in my opinion this was more fun and tested my driving skills, a great alternative for someone who has tried the rest.

Top Tip
Take a friend - there is a small fee (£5pp) but up to 2 people can ride in the cab with you. They can enjoy the experience with you and take pictures/video.
