Want the kids to have fun? Rallying for juniors comes with fun by the bucketload! As long as your child is aged 9 or over and at least 4ft 6in tall they can rally – and there’s no need to know how to drive either.
Dual-controlled cars are the key to these rallying experiences specifically for kids. Young rally fans are in the driving seat but at the same time the instructor is there to guide them safely around the track whilst building up their confidence and skill as they drive.
At all three venues the kids will be getting behind the wheel of a Ford Ka that has been souped-up and prepped ready for rallying. Surprisingly nimble on the purpose-built rally course (or rally stage as the experts call them!) we think they are great fun and easy to drive.
These junior rallying packages are made up of sessions each of which lasts around 15-minutes. On the Bronze experience little ones tackle session 1. For Silver kids will do sessions 1 and 2 whilst the Gold offers the complete package with sessions 1 2 and 3.
On session 1 the expert instructors will teach the basic skills like steering braking and changing gear. Session 2 sees the teens heading out onto the rally stage to get a feel of how to drive a rally car. Session 3 is all about encouraging the juniors rallyers to really go for it like a proper rally driver with your instructor acting as trusty co-pilot as you put into practice what you have learnt.
Safety of course is a priority for the instructors many of whom are present or former competitive rally drivers. They have a passion for the sport and their enthusiasm will help make your little darling’s rallying experience something they will never forget.
With a choice of packages available at a choice of venues we reckon rallying for juniors is going to be a big hit with any car-mad kid. They’ll learn a lot have fun and impress you with their rally driver skills too.
