This is your chance to finally get inside this rugged off-roader and join a pro driver as they put it through its paces. Whether you choose morning or afternoon, you can get to grips with the Grenadier in your own dedicated session. And ask our experts whatever questions you like. You can bring a friend too, but be quick – places are limited and we don’t want you to miss out.

It's finally gone through I think, though no confirmation of the time slot/date - just says 'Thanks for registering to attend Grenadier UK Tour - Firle Place'

Fingers crossed! Would be nice to see one in the flesh.

Well that tells me one thing.

Forget test drives at a dealership anytime before November.

I am being pessimistic here and thinking this is just stalling for time.

They are nowhere near me and unless on my doorstep I wouldn’t be making any effort to go just to be able to be a passenger in one if I am honest, Been and done that over a year ago.

Have to question posting the details up on a public forum.

The email has hopefully been targeted at those with orders. Some won't get to see the email until later, go to reserve a place and find spaces all taken...

Yes- but they will be able to drive the Grenadier, whereas we are " allowed to ride alongside a trained driver "

I doubt that, "Your Grenadier experience will last around 15-20 minutes and you will be accompanied by a professional driver."

„Before you get your very own Grenadier, it's time to get behind the wheel of our INEOS Grenadier pre-production model to explore the rugged all-terrain vehicle from all angles and see first-hand how it behaves on different terrains.“

When I read this in the original German email I understood I would be the driver. I will double check with the dealer tomorrow.

You're wrong, @Arkaig:

Hallo Edgar,

möchtest Du eine(r) der Ersten sein, den INEOS Grenadier selbst zu fahren? Diese Möglichkeit bieten wir Dir während der INEOS Grenadier Experience Roadshow, die vom 20. September bis 18. Oktober 2022 in ganz Deutschland stattfindet.

In English:

Then I'm green that we in the UK cannot drive it while German market can. Big difference in the experience between sitting as a passenger and actually driving it.

I'll take whatever I'm given though! Maybe some UK regs stopping it.

Just checked with Ineos- it seems Germany will get the pre production cars first, as Uk has a larger number of 2B prototypes available for the Road show. The next batch of pre production vehicles for UK will follow soon and should be available for us to drive, although they won't be here in time for the Glanusk show.

Responded to the email and booked my place in the Lake District. If I'm paying out £65,000 or so, quite happy to spend a day in the country even if only for a 20 min ride off road with a professional driver.

I did eventually find the email confirmation in my 'Junk Mail' folder. Date confirmed for 21 October down at Firle Place.
Now if I could just get a hold of one of those Ineos notebooks to jot things down, where could I get one of those I wonder......?
