As a Customer on an Experience Course, What Can I Expect?

At Forest Experience we want to engage with you at a quality level and encourage you to enjoy the rally experience. We do a short but valuable safety briefing and get you in the car as quickly as we can. You are in the driving seat – literally – from the moment you turn the key. All of the driving is done at our carefully selected rally venue.

We use iconic rally cars including the classic RS2000 Mk2 Escort and the iconic Subaru Impreza prepared by internationally renowned motorsport company GJM.

When you come to us, you do all the driving and are under the instruction of an experienced rally driver. We will put you through your paces and teach you car control skills such as handbrake turns, power slides and fast corner exit speeds.

Once you’ve done your best time for the day there is an opportunity (for only £30 extra) to have your instructor for the day drive you at thrilling speeds - the only time you will be in the passenger seat - and you will see just how fast you can really can go on around the stage.
