Junior Rally Driving at Silverstone Rally School
A lovely Experience available in Silverstone Park, Northamptonshire.
Wow guys – you can now drive at the famous Silverstone rally venue, even with no previous driving experience. Begin your session with a safety briefing before practicing the basics, such as the use of the accelerator and clutch control, along with steering and braking techniques. All this on an authentic rally stage in a dual-controlled Ford KA rally car with roll bars and rally seat harness. Depending on how you progress, you may be able to master more advanced techniques such as handbrake turns and power sliding. You will have the chance to put what you have learnt into action with three separate driving sessions and, to finish off, you will be given a high-speed passenger ride by your instructor to see how it really can be done!
Sunday – Friday throughout the year (Saturdays are also available from April through to October), excluding bank holidays.
Driving might be cancelled in extreme weather conditions (e.g. snow, ice, heavy rain) which would make driving at speed dangerous.
Expect to be at the venue for up to two hours. This includes a briefing, tuition and around 20-25 minutes driving time.
Be part of a group of up to six drivers, however driving time is on a one to one basis with just you and the instructor in the car.
Spectators are welcome and there are superb purpose-built indoor and outdoor viewing facilities. Please note that animals are not allowed at the circuit, with the exception of guide dogs.
Wear flat shoes or trainers which are comfortable for driving, trousers and long sleeves. A helmet is provided, but if own one, feel welcome to bring it along.
Minimum age is 11, maximum 17. Minimum height is 4’6”, maximum 6’1”. No driving experience needed but each driver must be accompanied by an adult.
This experience takes place at the Silverstone Rally School, not the Silverstone Racing Circuit.
