What Can I Expect

Here's 4x4 & rally driving in Gloucestershire rolled into one fab experience! Spend the day with the pro driving team at this Cotswold Waterpark driving centre and learn to off road and go rallying too.

The day is divided into two halves. One session is dedicated to all things off road, whilst the other is all about rally driving skills. There's a purpose-built 4x4 track and a proper loose gravel rally too. The layouts are really well designed, which is what makes this Gloucestershire rally and off-road venue so good.

The off-roading part of your day is spent with a trusty Land Rover Discovery. Group sizes are kept to three, so when you're not behind the wheel, you'll be riding as a passenger in the vehicle.

You'll be shown just how capable these iconic 4x4 vehicles are. Up muddy hills, down the other side, through water, along rutted paths and over tree roots with ease, the Landy is a great choice of car for the job!

Rallying is a whole different kettle of fish. In fact, you can forget all those techniques you were taught in the Landy. Taking a fully-prepped rally car around a loose gravel track takes coordination.

With your hands struggling to keep a grip on the steering wheel and the wheels full-locking in each direction, your instructor will tell you how to go from chaotic to charismatic with your rally driving.

Let's face it, we've all wanted to have a go at doing a handbrake turn. And with the top-notch teaching, you might well pull one off during your rally and 4x4 driving combo session in Gloucestershire. Book now!
