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'll be provided with a helmet and will then get in to the driving seat of the first of the two cars. You will be strapped in to the seat of the rally car via a full safety harness with the help of a member of staff.
The instructor will introduce you to the main features and controls of the car and will talk you through what skills you will be taught whilst driving on the track. The main part of the tuition is carried out in the car so you can get the most possible time behind the wheel. An intercom system is built in to the rally car to enable you to talk to the instructor as you drive, as a co-driver would on a real rally stage.
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 4 laps in this car of the 1 1/2 mile long stage; manoeuvring your way through cones and tyres at high speed. You will get to 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. Once you have completed your first session the the car you will then have another session of 5 laps in the same car before lunch.
You will then get a break including lunch of a two course meal, which is included in the package. Lunch can also be provided for your spectators at £12.50 per head, which is payable in advance.
In the afternoon, you will have another two session of 5 laps driving in the second car. The last lap in each car will be timed and the two times will be then be combined.
Once all the driving sessions have been completed and if time permits, you will have the opportunity to be strapped in to the passenger seat while the instructors get their own back! You can experience a white knuckle ride on a "hot lap" with the instructor driving for £10.
If time permits, your spectators will be able to experience a high speed demonstration lap for £10.
Also, if time allows, the rally school has a group A rally car, a Mitsubishi Evolution IV, which is also available for a white knuckle ride. For £25, both drivers and spectators can have this experience.
Profits from all demonstration runs go towards the charity which we support, the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Once the hot rides have all 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 score sheets and certificates. Additionally, trophies will be handed out to the three drivers with the fastest combined lap time.
Most days, a photographer is onsite and will be available at the end of the day to purchase photos from.
The whole day rally experience runs on Saturday's.
