“I’ve been a high performance driving instructor for the last 15 years coaching students to learn about their vehicles capabilities on a race track. I’ve always wanted to learn about off-roading and get into that part of the motorsport world so I decided to be a student for a change. NORA 4×4 was first class. Their instruction and focus on safety was superb but most of all they are really nice team that put you at ease and let you focus on learning, being safe and having fun. I rented one of their vehicles and was amazed by it’s capabilities. Bottom line, I learnt a lot, had fun and will be back again for more instruction.” – Kish G, May 2023
