A RALLYSTAR adrenaline filled day, starts off with an interesting introduction session during which we discuss our passion, “the art of driving”, rallying as a sport and the incredible experience of participating. We also tell you about the rules for the day and chat in general about drivelines, rally car behaviour, what to do and what not to do. This intro session taken seriously is worth the time and money spent for the whole course. You can of course sit looking around, thinking about the previous evening or even how you are going to drive without listening – and not get much worth – that is up to you. We are glad to say that 98% of people do not disappoint. We give you a short lecture in the use of Pace Notes and by the time you get to do your special stage you will drive it like a rally driver! After the theory we all move to the track for the real McCoy! We would like to remind you that you are in the bushveld. Please do not fool around with cigarettes or matches, and keep your eyes open when walking in the grass. The snake in the bible was not the last one around! Do not forget the sunblock and sexy hat! Then also stay off the road and if you have children – they are your responsibility. Rally and racing will always be dangerous – so please take extra care and do not do anything silly. When we arrive at the track, you will be taken around it to look at and discuss “racing lines”, brake-points, etc.
We will point out the danger points, the specific things to watch out for. Please do not try to memorise the track as you will come short! Listen to your navigator and drive accordingly!
After the recce and instructions you be allowed to get behind the steering wheel of a real rally car for your first laps. This is mainly to familiarise yourself with the car and get the feeling of its power and behaviour on gravel. Then follows what you have been waiting for! Slightly more expensive than the daylight Self-drive Experience, but completely different. Night time through the bushveld at speed is simply crazy! Everything we do is exactly as during the daylight run except that you will then be able to SEE properly! The powerful rally lights offers an incredible experience – one we promise you will never forget. A hotseat spin at night is a real bladder burster and should be handled with care! No weak hearts or valves! Remember the night drives are only offered on Wednesday and Friday evenings and you may want to sleep over at the venue – which will give you a chance to enjoy all the other entertainment offered.
The Rallystar Rally Hotseat Experience starts with a short briefing during which we explain what you can expect in a rally car.
Then you are safely strapped into one of our powerful rally cars and one of our professional rally drivers will take you around part of the specialist rally stage at a medium pace to familiarise you with the rally car and get the adrenaline pumping.
Then when you start to believe that it can’t be all that bad, all hell breaks loose when our professional rally driver opens up the powerful rally car and takes you for the ride of your life!
We now do our famous action packed, adrenaline pumping Rallystar Hotseat Spin at night.
Imagine going at high speed around corners in the dark.
