Mud, dust & a huge adrenaline rush!  Ever wondered what a Scandanavian flick is?  Or just how pro rally drivers slide their cars at seemingly impossible angles through the bends?  Well the answers are waiting for you on the Castle Combe Rally Driving Experience!  

Starting with some initial familiarisation laps alongside your instructor, you'll then take the wheel for your first taste of 'getting it sideways'!  You'll hone your skills in both front and rear wheel drive rally cars, with the clock running on your final driving laps in a 'time trial' competition...

The experience ends with a presentation of awards and a high speed 'white knuckle' passenger ride in either the BMW or Celica - strap in for the ride of your life as you won't believe just how fast rallying can be with a pro driver at the wheel!

  • Classroom briefing covering safety and rally driving techniques

  • Driving laps in both front and rear wheel drive rally cars

  • Total of 10 laps of the specially designed, loose surface rally 'stage'

  • 'Time Trial' laps against the clock (in both FWD & RWD cars)

  • High speed passenger lap

  • Spectators welcome who can also join the fun by purchasing additional high speed passenger laps on the day in a Subaru WRX (£20 - subject to availability. CASH ONLY)
