Drive a Ford Escort RS Turbo near me

Originally built by Ford to compete in the Group B or 'Killer B's' Rally series, the Ford Escort RS Turbo was the forerunner to their RS2000 model. Problems with development meant it was delayed in arriving on the market until 1985, but it’s status as a rally car and example of ‘Hot Hatches’ from that era means it has found a new audience and popularity over 30 years later.

A two door coupe model, weighing 2249 lbs, the Ford Escort RS Turbo is small but incredibly powerful in terms of handling and performance. Under the bonnet lies a four cylindered S5 8V Turbo engine, packing 129 bhp.

Accelerating from 0 - 60 mph in 8.7 seconds, and with a maximum speed of 128 mph, TrackDays is proud to offer the Escort RS Turbo on a variety of exciting driving experience days, from our 80s Hot Hatch Blasts to our Stunt Driving Experiences.

We have a variety of locations where you may get behind the wheel of a variety of iconic Fords.

Experiences begin at £49 and may be enjoyed in up to fifteen different locations throughout the United Kingdom! This category includes well-known courses like Blyton Park in Lincolnshire and Castle Combe in Wiltshire.

We also offer experiences at Warwickshire's Stoneleigh Park, Suffolk's RAF Honington, and Oxfordshire's Abingdon Airfield. Our location tools in the upper left corner of this page may help you find a fantastic driving day near you, no matter where you are.


How to Book a Ford Driving Experience

Our open gift cards make a wonderful present and are the most flexible way to arrange your next Ford driving day package on your preferred day and time.

All orders include email coupons, however at checkout, we have additional gift wrapping options and special deliveries through Royal Mail or DPD, which may add to the surprise for the sports fan in your life and are perfect for remembering any special event.

Our live booking system is totally unique - with suppliers and venues supplying information on a regular basis so that you may book directly on any of the days listed in the Events Calendar.

If you purchase an open Ford package gift certificate, be sure to double-check the validity term, since certain Ford vouchers and special offers may have a shorter or longer validity time. On the final booking this information will be stated explicitly.

Please bear in mind that reserving a Ford Experience for a certain date is a reservation request that is subject to availability. We usually confirm your reservation within 48 hours, but you should not make any plans until you get final confirmation.

When buying a Ford Experience, it's also essential to make sure the driver fulfils all age, weight, height, and licence requirements. Each event has its own set of requirements, so be sure you've gone over everything. If you have any questions, please contact our customer service department, who will be glad to help you.

Although this is not always the case, we will usually indicate it in the package name if the experience is for young drivers. The driver will most likely be unable to drive if they do not fulfil the requirements on the day.

Cool Facts About the Ford Escort RS Turbo

Perhaps given its stunted route to production and scarcity compared to their RS2000 model that followed it, the Ford Escort RS Turbo has become a rare and much sought after find on the second hand market. To find one in good working condition could set you back anything in upwards of £4500.

In an article listing the greatest ‘fast Fords’ in 2008, Auto Express magazine placed the Escort RS Turbo at #20 in their rankings, stating that ‘the RS badge is only fitted to the quickest, most driver-focused Fords – and the Escort RS Turbo is no exception … it makes up for its flaws with its speed.’
