Join us for an exclusive opportunity to experience Auckland’s only world class off road venue. This single day experience will push your vehicle's limits on the path less travelled, where the highly trained instructors from Downforce Auto Events will highlight some of the many features and technologies at your disposal in your Land Rover and push your car to the limits.

Details of the day:

Firstly meet the crew from Archibald and Shorter and downforce for a coffee and BBQ breakfast at our dealership in Wairau Valley. After a short briefing and explanation of the days activities we will take the convoy on the road out to the adventure park in Woodhill Forest.

Upon arriving to the off road tracks we will guide you through an introduction to Off-Roading in the terrain park highlighting how many of the systems inside your vehicle work to keep you in control in any driving conditions. You will also have a chance to show us how good your sand driving is on the fast and flowing sand track which runs around the perimeter of our terrain park.

To conclude the day we will split the group into relevant models and take you through some more challenging off road tracks before making our way back on the road to return to Archibald and Shorter North Shore. 

Light refreshments will be made available when you arrive back at roughly 3.00 - 4.00 PM where we will waterblast your vehicle to clean the forest off your car. Of course you can always opt out of the vehicle clean should you prefer the genuine Land Rover look!
