Extended Rally Driving in Loughborough
Begin with a safety briefing from an instructor, before a fascinating introduction to rally driving techniques, quite different to normal road driving. Then join the instructor in a rally car for a demo lap around the track, to get an idea of braking points. Then jump into the driving seat of three different cars for around ten very intense minutes each. First up is a Mitsubishi Evolution V, followed by a Subaru WRX Rally, both on tarmac, then hit the loose gravel stage in Group N rally car (usually a Polo or Focus RS). After a break for lunch, get prepared to do it all over again, driving all three cars and ending with a passenger ride at competition speed with a pro driver at the wheel. Receive a driver certificate to take home.
