A rally rush track day is a driving experience where you have to forget almost everything you know about the rules of the road, and even how to drive a car. With speed of the essence, there are no limits, no speed cameras and the only goal is to go as fast as you dare, and have a good time of course.
Rally driving is unlike any other kind of racing, and your instructor will show you how to get the most out of your car and make the most of tried and tested rallying techniques such as left foot braking whereby you operate the brake pedal with your left foot in order to leave your right foot free to concentrate on the throttle – it may feel a little strange to start with, but once you realise how quickly you can go from braking to accelerating, you will start to appreciate the benefits of the technique. This is just one of the things you’ll learn on your rally rush experience.
If you’re lucky, you might also get a chance to try out some other classic rallying moves such as the handbrake turn and Scandinavian flick – if you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to take a corner travelling sideways, then you are definitely ready for rallying and the delicate balance of oversteer, countersteer and trying to keep the car on the track. A rally rush driving experience is a great opportunity to try out all these driving techniques and more, as well as being treated to a high speed passenger ride with an instructor, so if you haven’t had enough of high speed action while you were behind the wheel, then you will certainly have white knuckles by the time your instructor’s finished with you.
So, if you know someone who has a passion for speed and a love of high octane driving experiences, then a rally rush experience is the perfect present. Perhaps you have spent hours watching the professionals racing round the track with someone and want to give them the chance to try it themselves, then a rally rush experience is an ideal way to let them loose behind the wheel.
