We love this Experience available in Seighford, Staffordshire.
Grab the keys to a legend of the rally world on this high octane driving experience. Choose between the Subaru WRX STI and the Ford Focus 2.3 Eco-Boost RS. Begin with a quick safety briefing and introduction to techniques – after all, these are immensely powerful vehicles. Then get behind the wheel of the chosen rally car and hit the main tarmac track at Stafford for a full four miles of driving, making the most of the Subaru’s 300 BHP and 407 Nm torque or the Ford’s four cylinder, turbocharged 16 valve petrol engine. Finish with a de-brief and collect a certificate as a memento of the day.
At least two weekday dates a month.
Driving might be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. snow, ice, heavy rain or high winds) which would make driving at speed dangerous. Please call the venue Monday – Friday (if in any doubt).
Expect to be around an hour at the venue including a briefing and over four miles of driving. Please arrive a few minutes early to ensure a prompt start.
All in-car tuition is on a one-to-one basis. Briefings are held in groups of up to 30 people. There may be other vehicles on the track.
Spectators are welcome and each one is entitled to a free 4×4 off road passenger ride. Other extra (chargable) drives and passenger rides are available on the day subject to availability.
Dress comfortably (and warmly in winter) with trousers, long sleeves and narrow, flat-soled shoes to negotiate pedals that are close together. A helmet is provided.
Maximum weight is 18 stone and maximum height is 6’6”. A full manual driving licence must be presented on the day to guarantee participation.
When booking expect to be offered the choice of buying a collision damage waiver at £20 to £40 additional charge. Please note there is no obligation to purchase this optional waiver.
