Driving this truck around a purpose-built-track was more fun than I had anticipated. Firstly, you’re acutely aware of the fact that you’re in charge of something this big. But thanks to the encouragement from the Daimler expert sitting next to me, it felt almost as easy as driving a (quite) large SUV. The cabin, which had the optional air conditioning unit fitted, has just one row of seats that can accommodate three (really tall) people. The truck can be shifted from Manual to Automatic at just the press of a button – which is easily accessible. The manual pattern is required when the conditions are demanding. Otherwise, the automatic works just fine.
