V8 Trophy Truck, WRX Rally Car and Can-Am X3 Drive Experience FAQ's


Are participants in the V8 Trophy Truck, Rally Car or Can-Am X3 by themselves?

No, there will be an instructor in all vehicles. The Instructor and Driver will talk to each other through an intercom in the helmets. The purpose of the Instructor is to get the participant driving to the best of their ability and get them going quicker then they ever thought he would be able to.

Are the V8 Trophy Trucks safe?

Our V8 Trophy Truck is certified by CAMS (Confederation of Australian Motorsport) which is the governing body of Motorsport Events in Australia. It has a roll cage and the latest components. Off Road Rush Race their cars competitively in both the Australian Off Road Championship and the ARB Off Road Racing Series here in Australia, the same ones that the General Public get to drive.

Can spectators come and watch?

Yes! You are welcome to come and watch. We supply basic refreshments for drivers and spectators. You will be able to see sections of the track to watch your driver. Hot laps and extra drives are also available for spectators, enquire on the day. You need to allow to be at the track 3 hours, depending on the final numbers in your group. This is NOT 3 hours of drive time.

Please read our Terms and Conditions.

Can we have the drive and Hot Laps recorded?

As an optional extra on all of our drive experiences and hot lap packages, you can purchase a GO PRO recording for $40. This can be pre-purchased by contacting us before the event or can be purchased on the day.

Do participants need a licence?

No. For the Can-Am and WRX Rally we take participants from the age of 12 years so we do not require any drivers licence to be produced. The V8 Trophy Truck requires participants to be 16 years of age or above and to be a proficient manual driver.

Do you have height or weight restrictions?

We can take a driver who weighs up to 140kg (308lbs) and up to approx. 201cm (6ft 9 in) tall.  We have race suits and helmets that will fit all shapes and sizes.

Is the V8 Trophy Truck manual or automatic?

Our V8 Trophy Truck has a 5 Speed Albins Race Gearbox and is manual.

What are Off Road V8 Trophy Trucks?

They are like dune buggies but 3 times the size, about the same as a Land Cruiser with roll bars and all the safety gear. They are used for extreme off road driving and desert racing all over Australia.

You may have heard of the Finke Desert Race held in Alice Springs? The sport is as big in the USA as what the V8 Supercars are here in Australia. These buggies are exactly the same as the vehicles they race in the Baja 1000 in Mexico. The thrill of driving one of these is pretty big, and totally different to any other type of car!

What are the specifications of the V8 Trophy Truck?

Off Road Rush WA's V8 Trophy Truck is capable of speeds up to 220km per hour. The Truck that you get to drive is the same V8 Trophy Truck that our Off Road Rush Team compete in around Australia. WE ARE THE ONLY Driving Experience in Australia where the general public can drive a car that has competed.

Our V8 Trophy Truck is extremely safe due to the wild suspension, making the car very stable into corners and over jumps. It is equipped with the latest components available which makes it one of the top running off road vehicles in Australia. This means that your driving abilities will not be limited.
