Wet mud, near misses with trees, flying over hills and sharp turns; everything you would expect from rally driving, and now you’re in the driving seat! You’ll have a training session with a qualified instructor; after all, this is no ordinary track day! Whatever the weather, you’ll be free to throw this high powered machine around the specially constructed “track”, putting into practice the techniques your instructor has shown you. So slide, turn and put your foot down; you don’t have to pick up the cleaning bill! You will have five locations to choose from around the UK, each with their own unique track to keep you busy! During your drive your instructor will be in the car with you, firing instructions. Once you have finished your session, you will come away with a certificate to commemorate this action-packed day.

Complete Waste of Money

1 out of 5 14 November 2015
Location: Age: 25-34 Bought For Wife Occasion: Birthday
10 mins driving steadily around cones on tarmac, more exciting parking the car for the weekly shop in Morrisons. Should not be described as rally driving, more of a taster session for a learner driver - very poor. Told to arrive early for a full safety briefing that never happened. Poor organisation in general at the venue where it's a free for all & you start later than your booked time if lots of people there on the day. Complete anti climax and waste of time & money, very dissapointing. Would give no stars but was unable!!
What would you improve for next time? This rally experience would be improved with the inclusion of some rally driving!

Very dissapointed

1 out of 5 10 October 2015
Location: Age: 25-34 Bought For Wife Occasion: Birthday
I bought this for my husbands 30th. The description said 'dodging trees and jumping hills'...nothing can be further from it. He had a 5 min ride with an grumpy instructor on a piece of flat tarmac with a little gravel thrown in for good measure! We got there an hour early as advised for the safety brief etc, there was no brief either in or out of the car. We stood in the waiting area for the hour! Waste of money and very dissapointed.
What would you improve for next time? Change the description

Awesone Experience

5 out of 5 05 October 2015
Location: Thatcham, Berkshire Age: 35-44 Bought For Wife Occasion: Birthday
This was bought as a surprise birthday gift. I have always wanted to try a rally experience and this did not disapoint in any way. Excellent instruction and good amount of driving time, even for a taster session. All in all a great experience.

Not what expected

1 out of 5 21 September 2015
Location: Portsmouth Age: 18-24 Bought For Partner Occasion: Christmas
I understand this is not the overall case for everyone however my day was poor, even though you're told to come an hour before hand there was a 15 min brief and then I had a long hour and half wait, the car i was in was not in good working order as the handbrake had snapped so cornering was terrible as it was front wheel drive, the course was hard to navigate as all the cones had been knocked down and 'they didn't have time to put them back up' my in-car camera recording was not working either which is a big let down, and when it came to my free 4x4 ride the track was shut and everyone was going home, after 3 and half hour drive to this event it was nothing more then a disappointment.

RALLY EXPERIANCE but not what i expected !

3 out of 5 25 August 2015
Location: Derbyshire Age: 45-54 Bought For Daughter Occasion: Birthday
I was so much looking forward to driving a rally car under tuition. I was a little disappointed to find out that the car on offer was a clapped out Ford Puma. I was expecting a Subaru or similar for the money paid and having now the knowledge I would not have paid the extra money for collision damage waiver. I should have asked for my extra money back as I felt a little cheated as the cars had seen better days and weren't worth anything more than what had already been paid.
What would you improve for next time? Quality of car

Rally Taster Day

5 out of 5 05 July 2015
Mr Oversteer
Location: Worcester Age: 55-64 Bought For Wife Occasion: Birthday
My experience was a birthday gift from my wife. The staff at the venue were excellent and Vision Motor Sport should be complimented especially "Dan" my co driver/ tutor I will be back for a longer session having had a great morning with them
First session completed More gas ,off the gas, pull up the handbrake!!and all the other advice you are being given.its a lea
What would you improve for next time? The sat Nav code gets you as far as the microlight aerodrome which is nearby but then you are on your own I would suggest VMS putting some of their direction signs from that location to where the entrance is for VMS as we heard a few people being talked in by phone
Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes

high revs, handbrakes and hanging the back out

5 out of 5 30 May 2015
Location: Manchester Age: 25-34 Bought For Wife Occasion: Birthday
If you've done a few supercar trackdays then this is the next step in my opinion. We got to throw a Mark II Escort around a muddy track, while being timed and learning the basics of rally driving. We did a few laps around a small track first to get familiar with the techniques, then onto three laps of the full course. Co-driver/trainer/expert Mick was friendly, gave great advice and talked me through how to correct any mistakes (I did an unintentional 180 at least twice). Venue was basic, but it had portaloos, free tea/coffee, a little tuck shop, and magazines for partners who aren't too interested in seeing a car go around a field sideways. The passenger fast lap with Mick was an 'eye-opening' experience, if not for the 'we'll never make that corner' feeling, then just to see how it's done. In total it was two hours at the venue and probably 20 minutes in the car. And that's the only gripe; for the money, I would've liked another three laps on the full track. But then, I enjoyed it that much I'd probably always want more!
What would you improve for next time? Amount of driving time, currently too little for the money.
