Experience the fantastic handling, power and speed the Subaru Impreza STi has to offer. Begin with a briefing on the mile-long tarmac circuit and driving techniques before being let loose for over six miles in one of the most successful and respected rally vehicles of all time. Complete your experience with a debriefing session, presentation of a certificate to remember your day and completion of your driver analysis form. Bring a guest along and they can even enjoy a free 4x4 off road passenger ride.
Runs around four times a month, and can be on a Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday or Thursday. The circuit is closed from early December to mid-January.
Maximum weight is 18 stone and maximum height is 6'6''. You must be able to produce your full manual driving licence with you on the day to guarantee participation.
Driving might be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. snow, ice, heavy rain or high winds) which would make driving at speed dangerous. Please call the venue Monday - Friday (if in any doubt).
Expect to be at the circuit for up to an hour in total, including 6.6 miles driving time. Please be aware that sessions start from 8am and sessions booked between 11am - 3pm incur a £10 charge. Please arrive a few minutes early to ensure a prompt start.
