Off-road driving tips: how to drive well in the rough

  Off-road driving tips: how to drive well in the rough It’s not a high-speed thrill, but with the right preparation there’s great satisfaction to be had from taking a 4x4 off the beaten trackThere are plenty of off-road schools around the country where you can hire a 4x4 by the hour or by the day. These venues charge as little as £99, and at the end of your stint, you’ll come away stunned by what you’ve learned about adopting the utterly alien techniques you’ll have employed to keep moving. You’ll also understand the depth of ability of the average off-road vehicle, too.

Aspiring coders will want to move quickly on these space-inspired littleBits Prime Day deals ending Tuesday (June 22).
