Rally experience days

Which rally driving experience?

There are plenty of of rally driving experience days available from the big experience providers, but there are three main types to choose from:

Basic rally taster experiences.
These experiences are great for beginners, and you will get a short induction. Most locations have a small classroom so you can learn about safety and techniques before you start. Then you'll get a rally driving session around the course. You'll have an expert sitting next to you, telling you when to brake and how to approach the corners. These experiences are usually the cheapest and last a couple of hours, but you might only be driving for around 10 minutes.

Often included in these basic sessions are a lap or two driven by a rally expert – this is often the best part of the rally driving experience, as you’re flung about in the car and feel some real acceleration.

Advanced rally experiences.
These advanced rally days are designed for drivers who have driven rally cars before. You'll be fine-tuning your rally skills, learning new techniques and driving to the best of your abilities.

What you’re really paying for on these rally experiences is the chance to use a nice rally car on a full rally course. In reality they’re not going to let you drive exactly how you want. Don’t forget it’s their car, so if you’re grinding the gears and accelerating towards a tree in 6th gear, they’re going to tell you to ease off a bit.

These advanced experience days usually last longer than the taster experiences and cost more.

Rally thrills with extra skills
Rally experiences often come with extras, such as skid training or driving a range of cars. The best car you can expect to drive on one of these experiences is the Subaru Impreza, and you can usually get to drive one of these bad boys if you pay a bit more cash.

Skid pan training is also great fun, and may come in useful when you’re driving on normal roads on the winter!

You can usually get the option of combining rally driving with a bit of supercar driving too, but in my experience it’s best to concentrate on one or the other, rather than splitting your time between the two.
