Off-Road and Other Adventure Driving Experiences

 

Monterey Adventure Getaways

It’s all the (road) rage – off-road driver training classes and custom tailored experiences. Or if it’s speed you need, step out of the 4-wheel drive vehicle and into a hot rod. Whatever experience you want off or on the roads of Monterey, there’s a car waiting for you.

Skip Barber Racing School
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca

The classic road racing venue in majestic Monterey, California is home to one of Skip Barber’s most popular driving school venues. Driving exercises are held in the infield of the famous circuit. Here’s where you will develop your car control skills while you put your favorite high-performance sports cars to a real road test. Skip Barber Racing School offers you an opportunity to drive Vipers on the autocross to Formula Dodges on the race track. Classes can run from one day to a week, or more! http://www.skipbarber.com/

Land Rover Experience Driving School at Quail Lodge
Try your hand at steep descents down a two-track trail, tight hairpin turns with trees on each side, even climbing a pile of logs with just three wheels touching become obstacles you will overcome through lessons and programs, ranging from one hour to multiple days. Programs are tailored for team-building groups, individual or group lessons. Prices are reasonable and packages are available. The school is open daily, from 9am to 5pm. Classes are subject to availability. To schedule your Land Rover Experience call 831-620-8854.

You won’t want to do your wine tasting tour of Monterey County before you hit the racetrack or off-road course, but you may want to lean over the tasting bar and recount your experiences to your friends over a glass of great Monterey wine.
