    Thumbs up rally car experience

    What a day, just came back from KNOCKHILL RACING CICUIT where i had (for my birthday) the rally car experience which was fantastic. It was in a group N sappire and to top it all i came in second out of twenty people there! Would have been first had i not spun off during one run so i have pride of place my certificate and medal to show for my efforts, well chuffed I would recommend to anyone as the instuctors are great and you get a lap with them driving at the end, AMAZING! You think you are fast but you s**t yourself when they take the wheel

    its not on the main track but on the dirt track round the edges and you go out for three four lap runs (i think ) with a twenty min break interval between laps!

    Sounds good,did the rally experience at Silverstone a few years ago.Very dissapointed. Day lasted about 3 hours,mainly waiting around for your turn which was 2 drives about 3 minutes long and a lap with the instructor at the end. Not worth the £130.

    I was lucky enough to do the same thing on a corporate day out last year. Did the single seater things and the rally experience. Loved every minute of it.

    Like you say, you think you are on the limits until the instructors take over!!

    Glad you enjoyed yourself.

    Did you see anyone famous there? We bumped into Alan Mcnish which was cool. Don't know if he has anything to do with Knockhill???

    If anyone is thinking of going I have been told that the Legends are great fun and better then the single seaters they have.

    i took the vec round the first part of the main track last year at a hot hatch day (they had too many cars on at the last part so it was a jam) and it was awsome max speed i got up to was about 120 coming down to the hairpin but i'd love to get let loosein a proper car.
