Driving at Manby
£150 for 1/2 day course
This course combines time in the
Rally car with time in the skid car set to simulate real Rally
conditions - with all drivers in the skid car this gives the
benefit of learning from others. Apart from practice runs
there will be two timed rally stages driven - one in the skid
car imitating a powerful rear wheel drive rally car
(spectators can ride in the rear with the chance to video from
the inside how their driver performs free of charge). The
final timed run is in the Peugeot. The timed stages take four
to six minutes depending on weather conditions and the skill
of the participant. You can also look forward to a high speed
chauffered ride with your instructor!
Availability; This activity is run on selected weekdays
and Saturdays throughout the year, with various start times
both morning and afternoon.
