Testimonial from test day 08-08-2015
Parkwood 4x4 centre provided an excellent opportunity to shakedown our new car in a secluded location in the centre of the country. Easily accessible and perfect for motorsport teams of any size, the stage route had a great mix of tight and twisty sections along with something a little quicker to boost the confidence. The forest roads are in great condition and even with a water splash mid-stage, stood up well to several hours of flat out driving across the gravel surface.
We have no hesitation in recommending the centre as a great rally test venue for both experienced drivers and novices keen to develop their skills.
