Stafford Activity Centre is the perfect place to learn some of the different driving techniques required to become a success in a rally scenario. Drive on tarmac for over six miles in either a Subaru Impreza Sti or Ford Focus RS - both armed with stunning power and featuring surprisingly good agility around bends. Then pit your wits on a rally stage, doing handbrake turns in a Clio and see how the different drives compare. Receive a high-speed passenger ride and if you bring along a guest, they get to enjoy a free 4x4 off road passenger ride.
