Put pedal to metal on Silverstone’s rally stage with high-speed laps in a specially-prepared Ford Ka. This high-octane driving experience gives juniors the chance to take control of a dual-controlled rally car and learn some pretty handy skills in the process. Begin with a detailed safety briefing before climbing into the passenger seat for a demonstration lap to get familiar with power slides and handbrake turns. Go on to complete a series of adrenaline-pumping laps (eight laps on a weekend or ten on a weekday) around the loose gravel rally stage under the expert tuition of a fully qualified instructor. Essential for budding petrol heads!
