Learn some seriously cool new rally skills during this superb
half day course at the fantastic Silverstone Rally School.
Throughout the half day, you will get to grips with basic - but
very important - rally driving skills, and put your new skills into
practical use out on an authentic loose-surface rally stage!
This great introduction to the sport of Rally Driving will equip you with some essential skills for pushing these cars and your limits out on the rally track. The cars and tracks have been custom made for the individual schools and are designed to give you the best and most efficient lessons. The tracks consist of fast straights and tight corners or hair pin corners, allowing you and your instructor to really show some spectacular sliding skills!Once you have arrived and been welcomed to the centre your day will begin with a thorough safety briefing covering all driving techniques and aspects of controlling these powerful rally cars. Then to begin your day of driving you will firstly be sitting in the co-drivers seat for a brief demonstration of the techniques and methods covered in the classroom from your instructor. You will then get behind the wheel of the Subaru to practise power slides, handbrake turns, and a combination of both! You will then be taken out onto a full loose surface - or ‘rally special stage,’ with the instructor taking you through the circuit from the co-drivers seat.
To finish, your instructor will give you a full summary of your driving skills from the session along with the presentation of your personalised certificate for your day's achievements. This is the ultimate gift for rally enthusiasts or adrenaline junkies!
This experience is available throughout the year, on Saturdays
and occasional Tuesdays or Thursdays.

A brilliant day out, highly recommend
A very good half day rally driving, got loads of time driving the car, a massive rush! you can keep your super cars, rally is by far more exciting. fully recommend. the instructor Andy was ace and been doing it for 28 years so knows the track and cars inside out. I will be going back next year for sure!
A half day only included 45 minutes of actual driving time, and a lot of hanging around which I didn't think was particularly great value. Great experience though, staff are helpful and friendly.
The day overall was excellent
The two options would be either the MK2 Escort or a Subaru Impreza. We would need to know which car the driver would like to drive upon making a booking.
This experience is for groups of six people taking turns, each getting around 20-30 minutes behind the wheel.
