A truly winning combination – the hair-raising thrill of driving a rally car, twinned with the absolute rush of being behind the wheel of an Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Start the driving experience with a welcome, introduction and safety briefing. Then slide for over six miles driving a Subaru Impreza STi. With mind-blowing handling, this car is enough to satisfy any driving enthusiast. Catch your breath before going on to experience the thrill of controlling the stunning Aston Martin V8 Vantage for over six miles again. Finish up with a debriefing session, presentation of a certificate and a completed driver analysis form.


Runs around four times a month, and can be on a Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday or Thursday. The circuit is closed from early December to mid-January.


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?

You can expect to be up to two hours at the venue, including 6.6 miles driving time (each car). Sessions start from 8am and those booked for between 11am – 3pm incur a £10 charge. 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 are likely to 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?

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

Are there any restrictions?

Maximum weight is 18 stone and maximum height is 6’6”. You must be able to produce your full manual driving licence with you 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.
