The Experience...

Imagine hurtling down a narrow dirt track, and with a flick of the steering wheel, the instructor dabs the brakes with his left foot! This causes the car to be pitched sharply to the left (or to the right!) and in completely the opposite direction to the approaching corner...! Welcome to Rally Driving at Castle Combe Circuit!

Your half day rally experience starts with one of our senior Rally Driving Instructors giving you an introduction to the sport and explaining techniques and safety procedures.

You will then be introduced to your instructor and to your car as it’s time for Lap 1... the Introduction Lap!

Introduction Lap...

After being strapped into the car with full competition safety harness and helmet, our experienced instructor will take the wheel giving you expert tuition on car control and how to get the best out of the fully prepared rally car at a modest pace allowing you to take it all in.

Tuition includes...

Correct use of steering, throttle and brakes on the mixed surfaces of the rally stage. Use of the hand brake in the front wheel Toyota Celica GT and how to power slide in the rear wheel drive BMW Coupe! Then, it’s over to you!

Driving Laps...

It’s now your turn to take to the wheel for your driving analysis laps!

You will get to drive both the front wheel drive Toyota Celica GT and the rear wheel drive BMW Coupe each for 4-laps of the rally course. Our instructor will be sitting alongside for some one-to-one tuition plus driving analysis and a timed run in each car on the last lap.

This is your chance to test out the grip of the cars with hand brake turns in the front wheel drive Toyota and some power sliding/drifting in the BMW... throw up that dust!

High Speed Rally Drive Passenger Laps...

Your driving experience will finish with the ultimate roller coaster ride as your instructor takes back the wheel and demonstrates what the cars can really do with an exhilarating lap of the rally course at proper rally speed.

It's then back to base for the debrief and presentation of your certificate, driving analysis sheet (and possibly a strong coffee)!!
