Take the wheel of one of the world’s most celebrated rally cars at the Bill Gwynne Rally School. This turbo-charged 4WD beast is just perfect for handling challenging gravelly terrain and sharp corners. Kick off with a full safety briefing and learn about rally driving fundamentals such as skid control, powerslides and handbrake turns on a purpose-built rally stage. Receive two demo laps to get acquainted with the rally stage before jumping into the driving seat of the Subaru Impreza for six high-octane driving sessions and tear around over 800 corners including handbrake turns to slid and skid around. This driving experience concludes with lunch and a certificate presentation.


Saturdays and weekdays around three times a month throughout the year. Dates fill quickly – book at least six weeks in advance.


Driving may be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions like flooding, which would make driving at speed dangerous. Please call the venue a day in advance to check final arrangements.
