Go to Rally School in Oxon, taking on a purpose built rally stage near Chipping Norton! It's an ideal place to cut your teeth on the art of rally driving and you can be assured of a thrilling drive - much of it sideways, as you get down and dirty! A comprehensive list of all the driving activities IntotheBlue offers can be found on the 'Driving Experiences' page including Escort MKII rally driving in Oxfordshire.
All experiences begin with a welcome and safety briefing over complimentary tea and coffee. You are then taken on a familiarisation lap of the rally stage so you can see just what you're up against when you're out on the loose gravel stage. The car you will be driving is a front wheel drive Ford Puma, which has been fully rally prepped and is ready to go wheel spinning its way around the course.
On the taster rally you will start with having a go at some of the best-known rally moves and tricks such as handbrake turns and slides. You will then have a second session where you can put these new found skills into practice. After that you watch and learn from the pros at first hand with a high speed passenger ride - guaranteed to be spectacularly fast.
If you pick the half day experience you enjoy three separate goes in the Ford Puma, following the itinerary of the taster session and adding timed laps where you head around the circuit against the clock, with the ultimate aim of grabbing the driver of the day award.
Those on the full day at this rally school in Oxon can expect to spend seven to eight hours in total at the venue, with a whopping six blocks of driving - and we are sure you will see the difference from the first attempts at flinging the Puma around the corners in the morning, to your slick timed laps in the afternoon. A tasty two course lunch is also included for all drivers on this experience - hungry work all that rallying.
