frequently asked questions
How often do you run the rally school events?
We run the rally school days a couple of times a month, mainly on Saturdays with the occasional weekday through the school holidays and half terms. For groups of 3 or more drivers, we can open a slot up for your group to book on in addition to the event dates already published. This will be subject to car & staff availability and may not be on an exclusive basis. For exclusive bookings, please contact us to discuss your requirements. We operate all year round although, through the winter months, we don’t run as frequently due to the wet weather damaging our gravel track if we do much more and throughout January, we undertake essential track maintenance and are therefore unable to operate. Check our availability.
How old do you have to be to do the rally experiences?
To enjoy a white knuckle rally passenger ride, there is no minimum age – it’s restricted by your size and whether we can get you in the rally bucket seats and harnesses safely so for this experience, you need to be over 4’3”, under 6’7” and under 20 stone.
To drive on the Junior Rally courses, you need to be 10 years old and to drive on the Adult Rally courses, you need to be at least 17 and hold a driving licence entitling you to drive on UK roads. Unlike many other rally schools, you don’t need to have held your full licence for 6 months before being allowed to come along – you can have a go the day after your successful driving test if you like!
What are the driver restrictions?
Drivers on our Junior Rally courses need to be at least 10 years old, over 4’10” tall and under 6’4” tall and weigh under 20 stone.
Drivers on our Adult Rally courses need to hold a driving licence entitling them to drive on UK roads, be over 5’0” tall and under 6’7” tall and weigh under 20 stone.
I’m not a very confident driver – is this for me?
Absolutely. Our courses are designed to be a purely fun experience and our instructors are brilliant at assessing your abilities and your confidence. On the course, you will have a dedicated instructor who you will build a rapport with and, without fail, everyone gets out of the car with a smile beaming from ear to ear feeling amazed at what they’ve just accomplished!
Are spectators allowed?
Due to the nature of our track, spectators over the age of 8 are allowed as long as they are strictly supervised by a spectating parent or guardian. We have a heated viewing area which overlooks the whole track so all the sideways driving action can be seen. Tea, coffee and refreshments are available on site. Dogs are not permitted on site although they are allowed in the car parking area and we can recommend lots of lovely dog walks should you need to bring them with you.
How do I book a place?
You can check our availability here and choose a convenient date to come along. Then give us a call on 01793 752281 where we can take some details to make the booking for you. If you have a voucher, we’ll need the voucher reference number or if you don’t have a voucher we can accept payment over the phone using all major credit or debit cards. Once we have made the booking, we’ll send you some booking confirmation details which include timings, directions and an information booklet detailing what to bring on the day and what to wear etc. Don’t worry if the booking is a surprise gift for someone; we’re quite used to keeping things a secret and, if requested, we won’t contact the driver.
I’ve got a voucher – how do I book a place using this?
Just give us a call on 01793 752281, quoting your voucher reference number and we’ll process the booking and send out confirmation details which include timings, directions and an information booklet detailing what to bring on the day and what to wear etc. You can also book online via our online booking facility. Have you got a friend who would like to come and have a go with you but doesn’t have a voucher? No problem, you can book a place for them without a voucher and make payment directly over the phone using all major credit or debit cards.
