Seminar Title: Mud Munching Monsters! Off-roading for disabled drivers.

A brand-new experience has been born. For the first time disabled drivers can get behind the wheel of a uniquely adapted Land Rover Defender. In this seminar Para-Drive founder Tom Arkle talks about the world of off-road driving and the opportunities for disabled drivers in recreation and competitive motorsport. Tom also outlines his vision of the ‘ultimate off-roader’ and what makes the difference between a school run SUV and a mud munching monster.
