Details

Our venue is used by top WRC Rally teams who come here to test their car setup and train their drivers prior to major rally events such as the WRC Wales Rally GB. Many other teams and privateers use our stages all year round and YOU drive the same stages. Many Rally famous World Champions such as Ari Vatanen , Pentti Airikkala Colin McRae, Malcolm Wilson have driven here and Top Gear and other TV shows regularly ‘shoot’ at the Forest Experience.

At Forest Experience we don’t sit you in a class room for hours we do a short but valuable safety briefing and get you in the car as quickly as we can. You are in the driving seat – literally – from the first lap onward. All of the driving is in done in the Forest using our 2 mile loop and bowl area in front of the spectator cabin and then the longer stage in the afternoon (full day only).

We use iconic rally prepared cars including the classic RS2000 Mk2 Escort and todays stand out car the Subaru Impreza as well other front wheel drive options.

When you come to us you do all the driving and are accompanied and under the instruction of an experienced rally driver who will put you through your paces and teach you car control skills such as handbrake turns, power slides and fast corner exit speeds. We don't use dual controls so you really are in the driving seat!

Both our half and full day experiences make use of our 2 mile forest loop and spectator bowl area where you get to grips with the car and various rally driving techniques such as handbrake turns and fast corner exit. If you stay for the full day you will also experience our longer forest rally stages with fresh challenges including hills and hairpins.

Both experiences finish with a competition between the participants over a pre-set course where the fastest driver on the day takes home the winners trophy.

Once you’ve done your best time for the day there is an opportunity (at extra cost) to have your instructor for the day drive you - the only time you will be in the passenger seat - and you will see just how fast your can really can go on gravel around our 2 mile Forest stage.
