The rolling Oxfordshire countryside is quintessentially English. But forget afternoon tea with cucumber sandwiches as more importantly, it’s also home to a number of exciting Rally Experiences with the London Rally School.
Off-road action takes centre stage as the grit flies, wheels spin and the cars power their way around the Rally stage. Its central location also makes it incredibly easy to get to, including being under an hour’s drive from London on the M40.
Visitors that are attending rally driving days are generally advised to dress in casual clothing with flat soled shoes. Guests and spectators are welcome to attend, for a £10 charge, and there are dedicated viewing areas for guests provided on rally stages as well as a chance to attend the drivers rally briefing. Refreshments are also available throughout the day for drivers and guests.
The Half Day Rally Course is a great introduction to the joys and thrills of rallying. You’ll learn basic skills, including how to control the car in understeer and oversteer.
An equally popular experience for just a morning or afternoon is the Monte Carlo Half Day Course. This is your chance to master two rally cars and provides you with the skills to tackle more advanced rallying. We’re sure that by the time you’ve finished, you’ll be eager to test your rallying skills even further.
And the great news is that you can learn more! Indeed, once bitten by the rallying bug you can progress to either the Rally Challenge Course, the Acropolis Day or the Full Day Course.
On the Rally Challenge Course, you’ll tackle special gravel stages, taking charge of three cars with the same instructor by your side. By the end of the day, it’s time to go for it on the special rally stage and put what you’ve learnt into practice.
The Acropolis Day lets you swap rural Oxfordshire for sun-kissed Greece (please note, the sun is not guaranteed for your rally experience!). The fun and the cars are real – the iconic Ford Escort RS2000 and the equally impressive Subaru Impreza – but you’ll have to imagine you’re powering along the dusty, rough and stony mountain roads around the Greek capital. Who knows though - if you’re good enough, then perhaps Athens awaits!
Meanwhile, the Full Day Course is the ultimate experience for any rally fan. By the end of the day, you’ll have mastered the special rally stage and a timed lap will see which driver is the fastest.
