Bid To Ride In A Tiger Tank

Tiger Tank Ride

10:11am 6th December 2013

A LIVE auction to ride in the world's only working Tiger Tank in Dorset is up and running.

The formidable weapon, made in 1942, was the offensive powerhouse of Nazi Germany that battered the allies across Europe.

The highest bidder will be able to get in the Tigers turret and behind its gears for an exclusive ride along.

Monies raised from the auction will go toward Bovington Tank Museum's Endowment Project that aims to keep their historical vehicles, in tip-top condition for years to come.

Museum spokesman David Willey said; "The winning bidder will not only have the chance to be take part in our Premium Tiger Day experience, but will actually be able to ride in the Tiger 131 itself - the last running Tiger I in the world".
