Drive like a Pro

One Day

Maximum dose adrenaline shot for drivers who want to challenge themselves driving up to three real rally cars on our twisting, turning Rally Special Stage!

We’ll ask you to ignore the norms of everyday driving and enjoy the real fun of learning how to drive a rally car by making it power slide and do great handbrake turns! We don’t have rev limits or speed limits so your Motorsport UK Instructor can encourage you to drive fast enough to learn the techniques and then faster as your confidence grows.

You’ll experience the range of techniques all World Rally Championship drivers have built the skill level on and feel like a factory driver by the time you finish!

Rally Legends

There have been fewer more iconic rally cars than the ‘Classic’ MKII Ford Escort and the absolutely ‘Awesome’ Subaru Impreza. The Rally Legends Experience gives driving enthusiasts one of the most exhilarating rally driving days available, presenting them with two very different and rewarding rally driving challenges on a twisting, turning Rally Special Stage.

The ‘Classic’ MKII Ford Escort dominated rallying in the 1970’s, it’s nimble rear wheel drive handling making it the perfect car to slide sideways on the challenging forest roads of Great Britain and around the world. In 1995 our greatest ever rally driver, Colin McRae, won the World Rally Championship in a four wheel drive, turbo charged Prodrive Subaru Impreza with his heroic, seat of the pants style, winning rally fans everywhere.

  • Control with throttle and steering

  • Total concentration
  • Power, power, power

'Classic' MKII Ford Escort

This is the original rear wheel drive sideways rally car, made famous in the 1970’s and 1980’s by our original national rally hero Roger Clark and world rally star Ari Vatanen. You’ll learn the special rally driving techniques used to complete great power slides and perfect handbrake turns. It’s one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling driving experiences known to man and is something every driving enthusiast should allow themselves to experience at least once in their lifetime!

  • On the day

    The power, steering, brakes, gearbox and suspension are all different to those of your road car. Your Motorsport UK Licensed Rally Driving Instructor will work with you to adapt to the differences and utilise them to help you produce great power slides, powerful braking and the ideal rally line through hundreds of corners on your one day rally driving experience!

    And then there’s the elusive handbrake turn – co-ordinating six things in little more than a second is a tough task! There are plenty of chances to practice though and you’ll be a master by the time you finish your final driving session – and you’ll feel like a World Rally Champion!

    Your Motorsport UK Licensed Rally Driving Instructor will really encourage you to explore your own limits, pushing you to go faster, turn in earlier and use power when you want to use the brakes! We guarantee you’ll sweat a little, you’ll shake a bit and you’ll smile like the cat that got the cream!
