We really like this Experience near Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.
Take charge of both the Subaru Impreza STI and Mitsubishi EVO in one-high-octane driving session. With turbocharged engines producing 350bhp through their advanced 4WD systems launching them from 0-60 in just over 4 seconds, both of these impressive rally beasts pack a punch! Begin with a theory based briefing on driving techniques and safety, then head over to the track for three demo laps and a high-speed passenger lap. After which, head straight into the action – hop into the turbocharged EVO and put pedal to the metal for five sensational laps of the specially designed circuit. Once you’ve got your breath back, drive a further five laps in the mighty Impreza STI, with a qualified instructor in the passenger seat to offer encouragement.
Several weekdays per month throughout the year. Saturday mornings are available for an additional £39 when booking.
