On arrival, you will meet the staff and instructors. You and your spectators will be asked to sign on. You will then attend a short welcome talk from the instructors who will give you a short safety briefing.
You will be provided with a helmet and will then get in to the driving seat of the first of the two rally cars. You will be strapped in to the seat via a full safety harness with the help of a member of staff.
The instructor will introduce you to the key features and controls of the car and will talk you through what skills you will be taught out on the track. The bulk of the tuition is carried out in the car so you can get the most amount of time in the car. An intercom system is built in to the car to enable you to talk to the instructor as you drive.
Then, the moment you've been waiting for, driving the car on the track. The first lap will be used for you to familiarise yourself with the track. You will then have another 2 laps in this car of the 1 1/2 mile stage negotiating your way through cones and tyres at high speed. You will experience power slides and handbrake turns. After you have finished, the instructor will fill out a score sheet, rating your performance in the rally car.
You will then have a break before your session of 3 laps in the second car.
Once all the driving sessions are complete, you will be strapped in to the passenger seat while the instructor gets their own back! You will experience a white knuckle ride on a "hot lap" with the instructor driving.
If time allows, your spectators will have the opportunity to experience a high speed demonstration lap for £10 in one of our 2 wheel drive rally cars.
Also, if time permits, the rally school has a Mitsubishi Evolution IV, a group A rally car which is also available for a white knuckle ride. For £25, drivers and spectators can have this experience.
Profits from the demonstration laps go towards the East Anglian Air Ambulance; the charity which we support.
Once the hot rides have finished, you will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire to give us feedback on your driving experience. The instructors will then give you a short debriefing and will hand out your certificates and score sheets.
On most days, a photographer is onsite and will be available at the end of the session to purchase photos from.
The taster rally experience runs on Tuesday's and Saturday's either at 8.45am or 12.45pm onwards.
This activity is dependent upon appropriate weather conditions. If we do have to cancel your session, we will book you in for another convenient time.
Drivers must hold a full driving licence. Rally driving is, unfortunately, not suitable for people with heart problems. There is an approximate maximum weight limit of 102kg (16st), but please contact us to check. Also, an approximate maximum height of 1.93m (6ft4") and a minimum of 1.52m (5ft) applies, but again, please contact us to check. You will be asked to sign a disclaimer on the day as you will not be covered for damage as a result of reckless or negligent driving.
You are welcome to bring spectators with you, including children who must be kept under strict supervision at all times for safety reasons. Please advise us if you plan to bring more than three spectators. Sorry, but no dogs are allowed on site.
Drivers and spectators can make use of our facilities which include ample parking and male and female toilets. There are also areas for spectators to view the whole track and a cafe selling hot and cold food and drinks.
