    Cool Rally experience - silverstone

    Well i had another great day out yesterday, rally experience at silverstone.

    excellent weather for the event (****ed it down) made the surface spot on for hanbrake turns and drifting! well i loved every minute of it, there were nine drivers in total and we got put in to three teams as there were only 3 cars.

    20 minute briefing on how to do the basics and shown the circuit. after that we made our way to the circuit.

    helmeted up and ready for action. holly was my instructor and she was quite impressed with first drive so she just sat back on the second drive and let me get on with it. then the third time out it was holly to take the wheel and my turn to do the co driving bit. that was a laugh. i tell you what i was impressed with her driving but then again they are all trained drivers and it is their day job.

    car spec:

    fiesta st 150 (163 bhp) group n rally car.
    fuly kitted out.

    not many pics to show but i had a great day.

    Done it twice now..

    First time was VERY wet, the second they was watering the track.

    Took the wife the second time, she rarely enjoyed the day, and she
    didn't come last.

    The instructors are great, fill you with confidence and have great car control.
