Rallying dates from the late 1800’s when back in the day this exciting form of driving would have been done on the public roads of Leicestershire (and was certainly a case of no kids allowed!).

Skills such as handbrake turns and hill jumps are used to manoeuvre around the ever increasing challenging tracks – and our Leicestershire venue boasts all of these.
