Open Monday to Friday 8.30 AM to 5:20 PM
Our rally driving experience days are some of the most popular activities that we offer. Once you've signed in for your rally experience, get ready to learn the techniques of handbrakes turns, power slides, understeer, oversteer and much more! On these rally driving days you'll have the chance to bust some moves in a proper rally car that's designed to be flung around corners, accelerate over loose gravel surfaces and brake like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.
Admittedly, rally car driving can be quite intense and full on, which is why we offer a variety of sesions. We've got tasters that let you dip your toe into the world of rallying, as well as half and full day courses. The longer experience will give you more of an insight into what being a rally driver (or a 'pedaller' as those in the know say!) is all about and you’ll be taught some of the classic rally moves too. Just don’t try this at home in your own car, as they say! Read more...

When you go rallying you'll be driving a car in a way you'd never dream of doing out on the public roads (and it would be highly illegal too for that matter!).
It's all about going hard on the brakes into the corners, then getting a bit of a powerslide on as you grapple for grip. A handbrake turn or two and you’ll then be smoothly powering out of the bend with the rev counter bouncing as you change up the gears.
As for what you'll be driving, we've got all the famous rally cars lining up to be driven. You can hark back to the old school with some of the best-loved vehicles from the 1970s and 80s being revved up for your experience. There’s everything from the revolutionary front wheel drive pocket rockets to the first all wheel drive rally cars.
Think back to the halcyon days of the Ford Team RS when the iconic Ford Escort RS1800 Mk 2 was ripping up the grit and gravel of the fledging World Rally Championship that it actually won in 1979. We always get loads of enquiries from motoring fans who want to have a go at the wheel of these absolute classics. You'll be pleased to hear that thanks to the dedication of skilled auto mechanics (it's getting continuously harder to keep the older cars on the road and even source parts for them) you can.
What's more, we've got rally driving experiences where you can take an Escort Mk 2 out onto the rugged trails of Wales.
Synonymous with GB rally stages, nothing beats the forests of Powys for a technically challenging stage and it really is one of the most exciting places to hone your driving skills in the whole of the UK. The school is run by four times British Rally Champion David Higgins, so what he doesn't know about tearing along rutted and bumpy tracks in Wales isn't worth knowing.
But don’t take our word for it, watch how thrilling rally driving in Wales is for yourself!
Elsewhere, many of the circuits are based within former airfield complexes. The great advantage at this sort of venue is space. You've got loads of room to try out your doughnuts, with long, twisting circuits that are purpose-built to give you a fun and testing, yet driveable course.
As well as the old classic vehicles, we've got modern classics too. We’re talking the sparring duo of the Subaru Impreza and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, who came head to head in the WRC stages for many years in the 80s and 90s. Both all wheel drive, these cars are truly superb to drive and the grip is just unbelievable, meaning you can really push the envelope when you're at the wheels of these Japanese wonders.
Bringing the rally car driving experience bang up to date, how about giving the ProDrive Mini Countryman a try out? It's four-wheel drive, it's been race prepped by the geniuses at Warwickshire's ProDrive and (in homage to the Italian Job) it goes fast enough to blow the doors off, probably. Think full on roll-cages, five point harnesses, full face helmet with intercom, your expert rallying instructor sitting beside you in the co-pilot's seat.
In essence, no matter what the car or where the stage is, you've got yourself an intense and brilliantly gripping rally driving experience day to remember!
