4 x 4 Driving & Quad Bikes

testimonialA fabulous off-road course which makes full use of the grounds at Winton.

A 4 x 4 course designed for new car launches

The purpose-built off-road 4 x 4 course was originally designed for the UK launch of the Jeep Renegade so is ideal for new car launches.

Why not experience the excitement of driving a 4 X 4 or quad bike on our technical, off-road course in woodland close to Winton Castle near Edinburgh?

The demanding terrain will test your driving skills on its steep, slippery slopes, through water and over piles of logs, all under the guidance of an experienced instructor.

Watch the new Jeep Renegade being tested on Winton's 4 x 4 course:

Winton’s off-road course has recently been comprehensively upgraded with new challenges, including ramps, rollers to test drive systems, ditches to cross, axle-twisters, winch challenges and a range of mud and gravel terrains to traverse.

Adam Purves Mitsubishi from Galashiels has provided a new Mitsubishi L200 Pick-up truck for driving round the off-road Winton Castle circuit to demonstrate its capabilities to new off-road drivers. It’s also available for certified driver training, corporate and private off-road driving experiences, and as part of more leisurely safari experiences through Winton Estate.

Large numbers of visitors can be catered for with 3 or 4 vehicles, and by including other Winton activities.

Off-Road BORDA Driver Training at our 4 x 4 School

  • Is off-road driving something you have always wanted to try or maybe you want to understand how your own 4x4 vehicle works?
  • Do you need professional certificated driver training for you or your employees using a 4x4 or ATV vehicle?
  • Want to know how to correctly and safely use a vehicle mounted winch?
  • Already drive a 4x4 or ATV and want to improve your skill level?
All of this and more is available in the glorious surroundings of Winton Castle and Estate.

We have a first class off road training site that incorporates both manmade and natural features including steep ascents, descents, ruts and side slopes. It is around this site that our BORDA qualified instructor Hugh Roberts trains a number of the regions Mountain Rescue teams!

As a member of BORDA (British Off Road Driving Association) Hugh of Farx4 can tailor any course or driving experience to suit the requirements of an individual or a group enabling you to get the most out of your time at Winton Castle.

The iconic Land Rover Defender is very much at home around the off road site but we also work closely with Adam Purves Mitsubishi to provide off road driving experiences and training in the latest generation and extremely capable Mitsubishi L200 pick up. We can offer vehicle familiarisation or to try before you buy sessions to demonstrate how the vehicle works and how to get the best from it.

Does the thought of threading a two-seat competition based V8 Land Rover along some gnarly tracks appeal to you? We can help you with that as well, especially if you have a gift voucher to redeem…………!
