1:1 Driver Development Courses

You'll be amazed at what you can do!

“Learning to drive a rally car is like climbing a ladder. Every step represents one of the infinite range of variables a rally driver can encounter and is a piece of invaluable knowledge.” Bill Gwynne

We tailor our coaching to the experience of each individual driver to help them achieve their objectives from the course. And rally driving coaching works for drivers from most forms of motorsport and performance car driving, not just stage rally driving. Drivers from circuit racing, track days, classic cars, kart racing and endurance rallying have all used rally driving coaching to broaden their range of driving techniques and improve their overall driving confidence.

“The key to acquiring as much knowledge as possible is to complete each step fully, before moving on to the next step.” Bill Gwynne

We combine drivers’ specific objectives and preferred style of learning with our range of coaching techniques and in-car video analysis to present a comprehensive, objective assessment of their driving.

Professional Racing Driver

Enaam Ahmed British F3 Champion 2017

“The best racing driver in the world is going to be the most versatile . . . the trick to being the best racing driver possible is having an adaptable driving style – being able to change from aggressive to smooth, this to that. It (rally driving training at Bill Gwynne Rallyschool International] helps when you go to new tracks like Pau, when you’ve got to feel everything and use your instinct. Rally driving helps you pick that up a lot more because you just have to drive what you feel rather than what you know. Rally driving has definitely improved my ability! My first pole position of the year was at Pau in wet qualifying. I went on the rally training course just before Pau and I think it made a big difference – my car control was really good. I would definitely recommend it to young drivers coming out of karting because it’s good for them to understand how you can drift a car. Even for older drivers it would still be beneficial.”

Interview with Matt Kew, Autosport Magazine

Amateur Racing Driver

Adam Knight Lotus Cup

“I raced at Spa a few days after my ProRally Driver Course.  I qualified 3rd and finished 4th in the race.  The rally training proved invaluable, I had lots of oversteer in the wet and would almost certainly been off had I not spent the day with you guys. Thank you!”

Track Day Drive

Ross Drybrough Porsche GT3

“I’ve done over two hundred track days and I honestly thought I’d be great at rally driving as I could ‘drive’. What I didn’t realise was how challenging and humbling an experience it was going to be for me. I started to get it but I definitely didn’t get it to the degree I’d expected. It’s given me a new perspective and I’m a lot more confident on the track. Rally driving is so much more involving than circuit driving, I have a great admiration for rally drivers.”
