The Rally Legends Experience
There have been fewer more iconic rally cars than the ‘Classic’ MKII Ford Escort and the absolutely ‘Awesome’ Subaru Impreza. Bill Gwynne Rallyschool International are offering the Rally Legends Experience to give driving enthusiasts one of the most exhilarating rally driving days available. It presents drivers with two very different and rewarding rally challenges on a twisting, turning rally special stage.
The ‘Classic’ MKII Ford Escort dominated rallying in the 1970’s, it’s nimble rear wheel drive handling making it the perfect car to slide sideways on the challenging forest roads of Great Britain and around the world. In 1995 our greatest ever rally driver, Colin McRae, won the World Rally Championship in a four wheel drive, turbo charged Subaru Impreza with his heroic, seat of the pants style winning rally fans everywhere.
Drivers begin their rally driving experience in the ‘Classic’ MKII Ford Escort and learn the art of balancing the car with throttle and steering as they power from corner to corner and execute great handbrake turns.
After lunch the stage is opened out as driver’s step into the ‘Awesome’ Subaru Impreza, built in the same Prodrive factory as Colin McRae’s! The experience acquired during the morning’s driving is supplemented with lift off oversteer to give drivers the ability to turn the car through the sweeping corners and tame the power of the 280bhp Impreza! It accelerates harder, stops faster and requires total concentration to complete each driving session.
Guaranteed to make drivers sweat and make them smile, the experience concludes with presentation of a ten point driver assessment and certificate.
