What Can I Expect

Kids go rally driving old school style! Let little ones as young as just 8 years old have as much fun as the grown ups with these rally driving sessions in a classic Mk II Ford Escort at the brilliant Birmingham Wheels.

For grown ups of a ‘certain age’ this Ford Escort Mk II Grp 4 rally car might look familiar. It’s in Venetian Red and is fully FIA specced up, with full roll cage and harnesses. Look again and that Cossack livery rings a bell. Then there’s that Lombard Rally sticker on the doors...yep, this is a faithful replica of Roger Clark’s 1976 Lombard RAC rally winning car!

Given this fact, you might think it’s madness letting kids loose on such an iconic car. But the operators tell us it really is child’s play, as the car has been kitted out with full dual control and an engine cut off. Even if they can’t reach the pedals they can ‘drive’ by concentrating on the steering, whilst the instructor does the pedals and gears.

Of course, if you’ve got a keen rallying youngster who can reach the pedals, they’ll be able to drive the car all by themselves. At all times the car will be under control and moving safely, but that doesn’t stop the kids experiencing the sheer delights of being a rally driver.

What’s more, it’s a real rally gravel stage at Birmingham Wheels. Opened as a charitable foundation to all sorts of wheel based sports (from BMXing to karting) specifically for kids, it really is a great little venue right in the heart of Birmingham, itself the home of the British motor industry. 

All this makes this rally driving experience for kids really stand out. It’s unique because it’s open to children from only 8 years of age and it’s in a fabulous historic rally car. In fact, we’re sure Mums and Dads will enjoy it just as much as the lucky kids!
