Swedish Telecom Group Have A Blast

Tank Driving Scotland welcome 20 lucky winners from a sales competition to experience a day of Tank Driving, Car Crushing, Segway Racing and Firing the Gun.  The group arrived from Edinburgh not knowing what activity they were about to take part in and all was kept a secret until they saw our line up of Tanks on site.  We held a competition for the best driver who got to crush a car , we also did a team building exercise with an ambush patrol that deployed into the woods by tank armed with paint ball markers, smoke grenades and thunder flashes.  Both teams thoroughly enjoyed their day with us and all were winners in the end.

unconventional bride makes entrance on a tank

When Adelle & I planned our wedding yes there had to be  a tank involved however not a standard camouflage one but a nice white one that blew bubbles as well as made a bang!

Unknown to us the wedding photographer sent the pictures to the local paper but when the Scottish Sun & Star News paper published the article,we were surprised when it made the papers! Not only did it make the news paper we were shocked to find out it made the Stv News website!

It may not have been a traditional entrance but bride Adelle Spasic arrived at her wedding on a tank.

The couple, who wed in Perthshire in Scotland, chose the unusual mode of transport after groom Rod Sim proposed on one.

Painted white especially for the occasion, the tank, which was used in the first Gulf War, came fully fitted with a 16.5 tonne self-propelled gun which fired and blew out bubbles as they greeted their guests.

The guns firing to celebrate the couple's nuptials.

We would like to thank all who have congratulated us and hope to see you on site soon, Adelle & Rod Sim

Big thank you


Just to say thanks for a fun time over the weekend. My son had a tank driving session and it was brilliant. (Saturday 2.15pm slot)
Also the staff were incredibly friendly and certainly didn’t give the impression that they were just ‘doing a job’. That makes the difference to folk coming to have an entertaining day.
Keep the standards and warm welcome up. We will be back!
Regards,
Ramsay .

Bargain Hunt Special

On a late summer’s day, somewhere in deepest Perthshire (Auchterhouse to be exact!) a team from the BBC’s Bargain Hunt programme came to visit. Charlie Ross and James Braxton swapped fine cars and fine antiques for fast antiques!

The crew who were in Blairgowrie filming for next years programmes decided that an ending with a difference would be just the ticket.

Armed but not dangerous, our fearless duo slid into our fantastic vehicles for a battle royale! The race was on… a few small dips (ha, ha!) and a few puddles later our daring duo returned to base, shaken and stirred, adrenalin pumping and all guns blazing! Laughter all round could be heard for miles as what appeared to be sea legs appeared from our awesome machines.

Why not do some ‘Bargain Hunting’ of your own and check out not only the great pictures of the day, but some of our fantastic offers currently available.

Mark Beaumont replaces his bike for a tank with the help of  TDS.

mark b 2

Mark arrived at Tank Driving Scotland complete with troops. Fortunately the weather held off and sunshine all round was the order of the day.

The squad of guys got into the spirit of the day and donned the outfits with specially prepared make up (cause they’re worth it!) and took control of one of our fantastic machines which was then followed by a half day of action packed paintball including being dropped off into battle by tank.

Mark and the guys loved their day so much with us that they have given Tank Driving Scotland the seal of approval, a rematch may well be on the cards!

Abbott Self Propelled Gun

                                               abbott painted

After a Couple of weeks in the workshop the Abbot Spg has been stripped of all the old moldy paint with an air chisel as in some places the paint was about 5mm thick!

The then naked machine was given a couple of thick coats of read oxide primer before the final decision of it’s end coulor,

                                                   abbott outside 

Desert sand was the first choice and after a couple of coats the Abbott was looking on top form, all the additional parts were detailed in black to make the Spg look like a mean machine.

Now the hard bit! We have an engine pack that is missing some parts & some vital wiring is missing from the vehicle , Not to good but we are sourcing the parts to get the vehicle operational in the near future,

If you have any Abbott Spare parts lying about please feel free to get in touch

Arrival of Tracked Rapier Missile Launch Platform

Tank Driving Scotland has been lucky enough to bring on board to it’s collection of vehicles a BAe Tracked Rapier Missile Launch platform.

rapier mound

This vehicle is a ground to air, radar guided missile launch and only a limited number of these still  exist in the UK.

This is a fantastic machine to drive with easy access for drivers as entry is through a car style door rather than climbing down a hatch into the drivers seat.

The vehicle is ready for service and will be available shortly as a driving experience.

Proctor Group Ltd. Corporate Day

This year, The A. Proctor Group Ltd. – a specialist construction products business, decided to treat their staff to a fantastic day out!  Around 40 of the staff visited Tank Driving Scotland to take part in a spot of Tank Driving and shooting.  Even better, they were joined by their kids, who all got to experience life as a soldier!!  The best driver won a bottle of champagne, and the best shot a bottle of wine.  Unfortunately it happened to be one individual who was multi talented, they were well prepared for their Saturday evening!

Thanks to Proctors for visiting us, we’ll see you next year!

PIPPA SAYS ‘I DO’ TO TDS

A fabulous choice was made by our good friend Pippa this month.  She decided to hold her hen party at Tank Driving Scotland!  The 15 girls descended onto our site on the 31st May dropped off in a pink Limo to begin the action.  Arriving in very pink attire (with some rather interesting head bands!), the girls made a quick change into army gear and got camouflaged up Tank Driving Scotland style.

After negotiating the course in the Tank and Mini Monster Truck – the ladies had to negotiate their way to the Digger driving through our army trenches!  (Lots of loud bangs involved, which resulted in LOTS of screaming!).  Pippa was a dab hand at operating the digger bucket and this was her favourite activity (am I feeling a change of job coming on?!!).

Pippa’s hen party was enjoyed by everyone, from ages of young adult to her granny!  We all took part and had a fabulous time.  When the limo arrived for the pick up, it was just no comparison to the other vehicles on the day…  Pippa’s hen party went on for a wonderful BBQ in the garden with a very specially ‘Butler’ in an apron.  It was unfortunate he had to cook the barbeque (burning hazard!).  I believe the evening finished with some terrible renditions of ‘I will survive’ on the karaoke.

We are so pleased to have provided a fantastic hen party for Pippa – and she promises that if this marriage doesn’t work out, she’ll be back for her next hen!
