JIM – Managing Director AKA “The Wallet”

Meet Your Instructors Imperium Adventures

Jim’s the founder of Imperium Adventures; he comes up with all kinds of crazy ideas.. and does them..with Imperium Adventures, he wanted to share with others his love for the outdoors, bushcraft and playing armies and a healthy obsession with Military Machines and their unique off-road capabilities. His wife believes he just wanted a great excuse for playing outside, building forts and having fun driving and maintaining army vehicles. When not actively instructing clients in our vehicles or driving them off-road at Imperium Adventures, to the shops, or on various local green lanes,  he can be found maintaining and restoring the Imperium Adventures fleet, building new features or improvements on site.  He grew up farming in the Orkney Islands and, as a youngster, loved to play soldiers and make go-carts and was an avid computer geek. He now runs Imperium Adventures (so still playing at Soldiers and go-carts?) and owns and manages a successful Business IT Support Company called Micro Pro (still a computer Geek). He is married, has 3 young children, a soppy Cocker Spaniel called Duke, a vicious cat, a 700kg+ 4 Year Old Norico-Pinzgauer (Off-Road Horse) and lives near Stalisfield in Kent.

Adam – Operations Manager AKA “Jims PA”

Meet Your Instructors Imperium Adventures

Adam is Imperium Adventures’ full-time Operation Manager and beating heart; he’s our SWISS ARMY KNIFE / Large hammer, being responsible for the day-to-day running of the site, handling enquiries and logistics,  maintaining and fixing the varied fleet, as well as delivery of experiences and events and managing our team! He is also a MASSIVE FAN of QUAD BIKES… he can do it all; he’s a mechanic by trade and loves the old-school machine we look after at Imperium Adventures; no fiesta’s here and not an MOT in sight (most our vehicles are historic) Adam is happy he’s getting paid to drive and look after our legendary Machines but is a real people person at heart and loves entertaining and instructing our guests on their Outdoor experiences. A local lad with a young family who is active in the community, he loves his job and is passionate about the potential of Imperium Adventures.

PAUL – Professional Driver / Instructor AKA “The Talent”

Meet Your Instructors Imperium Adventures

Paul is a vital Team member and instructor for Imperium Adventures, which means he spends about 10% of his time instructing on our experiences, 30% of his time servicing vehicles and 60% cleaning the mud off them. He is a massive petrolhead and is infectiously enthusiastic about anything with an Engine. Paul met Jim in an internet chat room for people who like to drive off-road and didn’t want to spend time with their mother-in-laws the next day. After a short courtship where Paul showed Jim some new Green Lanes and Jim presented Paul with a Unimog, Paulus joined the Imperium Adventures crew.  Perhaps the most dedicated of the Team and certainly the hardest worker,  he regularly drives the 200 miles from his chateau high above Guildford to clock in at Imperium Adventures!

MARTIN – Chief Armoured Instructor / Driver Mech AKA “The Hammer”

Meet Your Instructors Imperium Adventures

Martin is a former Tank Instructor for the 2nd Royal Tank Regiment and an accomplished HGV Mechanic. This means he is expertly qualified for his role as Lead Armoured instructor and Chief Mechanic for Imperium Adventures. Martin loves the armoured machines with a passion, especially when they are all working, and he doesn’t have to fix them; Martin’s superpower is his incredibly hard skull and equally indomitable spirit; all mechanical problems yield to him eventually! He is happy Driving Tanks or Commanding them. and although he won’t admit it – he really enjoys fixing them.. Martin is married and lives on a boat somewhere in the North Sea, when he’s not maintaining our Tanks and Trucks, he’s either busy stopping that boat from sinking, or at “The Flying Huntsman Clubhouse”, aka the pub.

GINGE – Professional Driver / Instructor AKA “The Muse”

Meet Your Instructors Imperium Adventures

Ginge is an Ex-Army Military vehicle enthusiast and instructor. His primary role at Imperium Adventures is to act as Jim’s muse, inspiring him to spend vast swathes of cash on interesting and unique military vehicles Jim has never heard of. There is nothing Ginge likes to do more than go on romantic purchasing missions with Jim to far-flung corners of the planet to inspect vehicles for acquisition.  When he’s not extolling the virtues of the Steyr-Puch Pinzgauer or dispensing random facts, he can be found training real Army men in proper plant operation or instructing clients of  Imperium Adventures on correct Unimog handling! Ginge is also a certified Genius, and has exchanged almost all his EQ for IQ, so don’t be offended by his trademarked personality. A massive Virtual Reality and Cycling Maniac, Ginge is Married and lives in Rochester, Kent.

A memory for a lifetime, nothing beats an Experience at Imperium Adventures
