Here’s a chance to drive two beasts of the rally world: the Subaru WRX STI and the Ford Focus 2.3 Eco-Boost RS. Each of these 300 BHP + vehicles boast incredible handling and acceleration, ideal for the sizzling straights and challenging corners of the Stafford main tarmac track. After a safety and driving briefing, drive each of these liveried cars for over four miles each and see whether the Subaru, with 407 Nm of torque or the turbocharged 16 valve Ford, performs better. Finish with a de-brief and collect a souvenir certificate. Prepare to feel the power.


At least two weekday dates a 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).

How long does the experience last?

Expect to be around an hour and fifteen minutes at the venue including a briefing and over four miles driving each car (eight miles in total). 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 may be other vehicles on the track.

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 (chargable) drives and passenger rides are available on the day subject to availability.

What do I wear?

Dress comfortably (and warmly in winter) with trousers, long sleeves and narrow, flat-soled shoes to negotiate pedals that are close together. A helmet is provided.

Are there any restrictions?

Maximum weight is 18 stone and maximum height is 6’6”. A full manual driving licence must be presented on the day to guarantee participation.

Anything Else?

When booking expect to be offered the choice of buying a collision damage waiver at £20 to £40 additional charge. Please note there is no obligation to purchase this optional waiver.
