Rally driving is probably the most on-the-edge driving experience there is. Be it on tarmac, mud or gravel, rarely is the car ever pointing in a straight line. The Rally Driving Experience is a fantastic opportunity to master this most demanding of motor sports. Only this time, Colin McRae and Richard Burns aren't bearing down.
Rally driving requires a unique set of driving skills. Not only are there different surfaces to master - tarmac and gravel. But also different styles of power delivery. Rear wheel drive. Front wheel drive. And the ultimate in grip, four wheel drive. Under the guidance of an experienced instructor, drivers learn power slides, skid control, brake and gear controls plus under and oversteer techniques. On both a high-speed, high-grip tarmac circuit and a purpose built rally gravel stage. New for this year are works race-tuned VW Rally Polos. We also have a selection of other rally cars including the ultimate rally car, the Mitsubishi Evo 'V's.
There really is no greater test of a driver's skills, or for that matter, their nerve.
