If you know a teen who’s keen on cars this junior rally in Essex is just the ticket! There’s expert tuition a fleet of fun rally-prepped vehicles and plenty of space for proud family and friends to watch the action as little ones learn the art of rallying.
The kids will love this young and dynamic instructing team here in Essex. They all started rally driving from a really young age – even to the point of heading out onto the private track and doing the steering on Daddy’s knees at the tender age of four. Now they are all highly experienced and are forging successful careers for themselves as some of the country’s best up and coming rally drivers having risen up through the junior ranks.
It’s all very inspiring for the kids coming to this Essex venue for their first taste of rallying. Of course not having a driving licence is a prerequisite of the course. And the only other requirement is that the children are aged between eight and 17 years old. After that a bit of enthusiasm is all they’ll need and they’ll be busting some rallying moves before long!
There’s a fine fleet of cars available for these junior experiences. Teenagers could be finding themselves behind the wheel of a Ford Focus or a Suzuki Swift. The Focus has been one of the most successful rally cars ever. Your little ones can step into the bucket seats of the same sort of car that brought the Ford Focus WRC team so many wins thanks to the likes of McRae Gronholm Solberg and Sainz.
As for the Suzuki Swift it’s nothing like the one your gran might drive. This track-spec version is more like a wild cousin. With handling that knock spots off the standard road-going version of these Japanese hatchbacks junior rallyers will soon be experiencing this for themselves.
The venue is a former airfield so there’s lots of space for youngsters to hone their rally skills. There’s even a purpose-built junior course that’ll have kids tackling a gravel track stage. Booking them in for a taster junior rally course in Essex will give them 15 minutes of one-to-one in-car coaching whilst the standard experience offers 30 minutes of driving. Opt for the Ultimate voucher and the drive time is extended to a full hour behind the wheel. All junior rallyers will be rewarded with their very own medal at the end of their drive!
