Feel the sheer power, handling and speed of the Subaru Impreza STi with this full throttle driving experience. The legendary car helped Colin McRae and Petter Solberg win the world rally championships and the session offers a perfect opportunity to experience its blistering pace first-hand. After a safety briefing tuition on driving techniques, get in the driving seat and let loose around the track for over six miles. It’s sure to become clear why this is one of the most successful and respected rally vehicles of all time. The session ends with a debriefing, a driving analysis and a certificate to remember the drive. Bring along a guest, and they can enjoy a free 4×4 off road passenger ride.


Around two weekday dates per month.


Driving might be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. snow, ice, heavy rain or high winds) which would make driving at speed dangerous. Please call the venue Monday – Friday (if in any doubt).

Expect to be at the circuit for up to an hour in total, including 6.6 miles driving time. Sessions start from 8am and those booked for between 11am – 3pm incur a £10 charge. Please arrive a few minutes early to ensure a prompt start.

How many other people?

All in-car tuition is on a one-to-one basis. Briefings are held in groups of up to 30 people. There might be other vehicles on the track at the same time.

Can I take people to watch?

Spectators are welcome and each one is entitled to a free 4×4 off road passenger ride. Other extra (chargeable) drives and passenger rides are available on the day subject to availability.

What do I wear?
