Things to know
Frequently Asked Questions
What are Off Road V8 Buggies?
They are like dune buggies but 3 times the size, with roll bars and all the safety gear. They are used for Extreme Off Road Driving and Desert Racing all over Australia.
Will I get to go fast?
Yes, these off road buggies are capable of 200km per hour. At all of our locations (Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth) you will reach speeds of up to 140km per hour on dirt.
Are the buggies safe?
They are certified by CAMS (Confederation of Australian Motorsport) which is the governing body of Motorsport Events in Australia. They have roll cages and the latest components on them.
What is different about driving a off road buggy?
You get to drive REAL RACE CARS that CURRENTLY compete all over Australia. You have the opportunity to get sideways on the dirt, we don't govern our vehicles and there is no other motor sport driving experience in Australia where we let you get airborne over jumps!
