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).

How long does the experience last?

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.

How many other people?

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.

Can I take people to watch?

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.

What do I wear?

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.

Are there any restrictions?

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.

Anything Else?

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.
