Has anyone been on these one day rally course expriences?
The missus fancies a rally course for birthday as its something she has always wanted to do. She wants a proper experience in a 4 wheel drive chav car (imprezza,evo) on gravel but as close to shropshire as we can. The local courses are tarmac or gravel in a peugeot 106 which she is not impressed with! :roll:
So anyone got any recomendations or do we have drive up to yorkshire?

I did an "everyman" day at mallory park a few years ago and it was ok.
Your there for about 7 hours but only get about an hour and a halfs driving in.

Its ok if you really want to have a bit of fun, but its not the real deal.

But then I'm spoilt because the mrs's family are heavily into the uk rally scene and her dad teaches driving here :-

Another vote for Phil Price, good stage, decent cars and a nice laid back vibe. The Higginses ran a place in mid Wales too- don't know if it's still going but was probably the best- I had a day down there when I switched to FWD a few years back. Shame I don't have the time or money to put it in practice!

I went on the Prodrive driving day with work, did the high speed track, tarmac rally stage, skidpan and off-road 4x4 course. Tarmac rally was brilliant it's the only time I've managed to make myself feel car sick whilst driving :oops:
