The Tank Museum is offering people the chance to ride in Tiger 131 at a day dedicated to the Tiger tank – Tiger Day 12, 14 September.
Tiger 131 is the only running Tiger I in the world and visitors travel from around the world to see the Second World War tank run at Tiger Day. Tiger 131 was painstakingly restored over a number of years by The Tank Museum and ran for the first time in 2004.
The Tank Museum is now giving Tiger fans the chance to win a ride in its most famous exhibit in a special charity auction and raffle. Two lucky winners will take their seat on 14 September at Tiger Day, where nearly 4000 visitors are expected to gather. The Ebay auction winner will also receive two Premium tickets for a Tiger themed experience day, for the Sunday after Tiger Day.
Museum spokesman David Willey said; “Tiger 131 is the most famous tank in the world and there are a lot of tank fans who will jump at the chance for a ride in this WW2 icon.”
All profits from the Tiger raffle and Ebay auction will go towards supporting the Museum’s historic tank collection and ensuring that Tiger 131 can be kept in running order for years to come.
