A driving experience makes the ideal gift for those who may be tricky to buy for but what happens when you want something a little bit different from the usual supercar drives? If you caught my recent review of the new Ford Focus RS and it has wet your appetite for some adventurous driving (in a safe and controlled environment of course) then you may like to consider giving some of these a bash.
There is everything from stunt driving to diggers…yes digger driving in our list of the best alternative driving experiences on offer. Here are our top 7…
