Christmas Special Full Day

Only Available for Purchase in December

All driving is done in our 900 Acres of Forest on a Genuine gravel stage in either the iconic rear wheel drive Ford RS2000 or 4WD Subaru Impreza. (Car is chosen at time of booking) This course is limited to 5 participants per car to give great driving time throughout the day

During this full day course, you will drive both our classic two-mile Welsh rally stage in a fully prepared rally car (chosen at time of booking the course) and a longer stage to experience a typical full competitive rally stage!

After a sighting lap in your chosen car you will practice rally driving techniques such as handbrake turns and power-sliding in preparation for the longer stage run where you tackle a more demanding rally stage typical of a competition forest rally stage in a competitive rally event. The stage includes hills and hairpins with magnificent scenery (not that you have time to look) for the ultimate rally experience.

You finish the session with a timed special stage where you compete with your fellow rally enthusiasts for the fastest time of the day and a trophy is awarded to the winner.

Between your Rally Driving sessions, you will also get a chance to experience the very different but thrilling activity of Off-Road Driving, your nerve will be tested as you have a taste of steep ascents and scary descents. Not to mention the mind blowing sideways lean through the muddy test.

There is the option to purchase a thrilling high-speed run with your instructor as your driver and you as a passenger where you will get to see just how fast the car really can go on gravel.

The price includes light refreshments throughout the session. A packed lunch is strongly advised as you will be in the forest for a few hours.

Spectators are charged at £5 per person.
