Drive like a Pro

National
One Day Experiences

You’ll be amazed at what you can do!

This is a maximum dose adrenaline shot for drivers who want to challenge themselves driving up to three different rally cars on our twisting turning Rally Special Stage!

We ask drivers to ignore the norms of everyday driving and enjoy the real fun of learning how to drive a rally car by making it power slide and do great handbrake turns! We don’t have rev limits or speed limits so their Motorsport UK Instructor can encourage them to drive fast enough to learn the techniques and then faster as their confidence grows.

If your driver is going to start competitive rallying, you can combine their Motorsport UK RS Interclub - Stage Rally Licence Assessment with any of our National One Day Experiences and get a discount of £100.00 off the price of your Experience.

On the day

The power, steering, brakes, gearbox and suspension are all different to those of your road car. Your Motorsport UK Licensed Rally Driving Instructor will work with you to adapt to the differences and utilise them to help you produce great power slides, powerful braking and the ideal rally line through hundreds of corners on your National One Day rally Experience.

Then there’s the elusive handbrake turn, co-ordinating six things in little more than a second is a tough task! There are plenty of chances to practice though and you’ll be a master by the time you finish your final driving session. You’ll feel like a World Rally Champion!

Your Motorsport UK Licensed Rally Driving Instructor will really encourage you to explore your own limits, pushing you to go faster, turn in earlier and use power when you want to use the brakes!

We think you’ll sweat a little, you’ll shake a bit and you’ll smile like the cat that got the cream!
