Pit your wits against the oldies in a real battle of the drivers. Begin with the basics, such as accelerator and clutch control, along with steering and braking techniques. All this on the authentic Silverstone rally stage, in a dual-controlled Ford KA with roll bars and rally seat harness. Depending on how you progress, you may get to master more advanced techniques such as handbrake turns and power sliding, before putting what you have learnt into action with three separate driving sessions and, to finish off, a high-speed passenger ride. It’s then time to see if Mum or Dad can do better as they learn the same techniques from the instructor before taking to the loose rally stage themselves for three seperate sessions. May the best driver win!


Sunday – Friday throughout the year (Saturdays are also available from April through to October), excluding bank holidays.
