    So much adrenaline filled fun….just do it!!
    Had such an amazing afternoon at Cotswold Driving Experience. Booked the half day rally driving and had the best time ever. I am a paraplegic wheelchair user and had the usual concerns with access etc. I needn’t have worried as everything was perfect. It was so nice to be treated the same as everyone else and compete on the same level for once. They have a separate rally car with push pull hand controls. So if you drive a car with similar controls then give them a call and have the time of your life. It was a fair distance to travel from Kent but worth every minute and I will definitely be back to beat my lap times. Whether your walking or wheeling, just do it!! Great people and amazing fun, thank you
    Many thanks for your lovely 5* review of our enabled rallying for disabled drivers. We work with a fantastic team who all go out of their way to ensure that our visitors all have a great time with us, regardless of any disabilities. The site works well with easy access and fully disabled-friendly facilities to ensure that your time with us is stress-free. We can't wait to welcome you back to beat your lap times!

    Great all day value
    Absolutely brilliant. Full day rally experience was great value. The competitive edge through the day made it. Andy's passenger seat coaching meant we got more confident and better through the day. Changing the track often was great to learn how to adapt.
    Many thanks for your review of our Authentic Full Day Rally Experience. Yes, the competitive elements and the different track layouts offer an exciting dynamic to this super fun sport ... we hope to welcome you back to try to beat your previous lap times!

    Perfect day out, what ever the weather!!
    Thank you for an amazing day Holly & Team!! Not laughed at myself so much in ages!! Having not experienced either 4x4 off roading, or rallying before both were extremely enjoyable. Really professionally run, the instructors were friendly and encouraging which made a great day even better. Must come back again to improve!!
    Many thanks for your lovely review and we're really pleased that you had an amazing day enjoying our Rally/4x4 Combo! These 2 driving disciplines are totally different yet equally challenging and really do offer maximum smiles per mile which our instructors are great at encouraging.... we look forward to welcoming you back.

    What an Absolutely brilliant experience!!
    I was gifted a half day rally day for my 50th birthday. I was slightly worried as an older woman that I would feel a bit out of place. But I needn't have worried. The staff were so welcoming and it was a good mix of male/female. My instructor Julien (not sure if I've got the right spelling) was really encouraging too and pushed me to go out of my comfort zone. Thank you so much for an awesome morning 😍
    Many thanks for your lovely review of our Half Day Rally Experience and we're so pleased that you had an "absolutely brilliant" 50th birthday present! We're very lucky to work with an awesome team of rally enthusiasts who all work hard to ensure that you feel relaxed, welcome and confident to push outside of your comfort zone .... we'll be sure to pass your comments onto instructor Julian and hope to welcome you back in the future.

    Great family fun
    Our whole party (1 adult and 3 teenagers) had a brilliant time under the fantastic instruction of Ryan. The afternoon consisted of two trial runs followed by a timed stage and a trip around with a pro driver. The kids were buzzing after with one determined to become a rally driver!
    Many thanks for your lovely review and we're soooo pleased that your family enjoyed their rally experience under the expert guidance and encouragement of instructor Ryan! We do offer an Advanced training course for the budding young rally driver, just saying....!

    Amazing thrill, Rally driving experience
    I went there with my son and my daughter’s boyfriend, what an experience….. truly great fun and full on from the start…. Our instruct was a chap called Matt Wheeler, he made the experience really great…. We had lots of practise laps and then we went into time trials, followed by a couple of laps being shown how it is really done, nail biting to say the least…. We went for my 50th and lover every minute, the team hosting it were great, well organised and looked after all the people doing the event. I think from memory there were 14 people doing the experience, and it took about 3 hours in total…. Thanks for a great afternoon…. We will be back for round 2, cannot let my son beat me again 👍👍
    Many thanks for your lovely review of our thrilling Half Day Rally Experience which is always even more exciting when a healthy dose of family rivalry is thrown in for good measure! We look forward to welcoming you back for a re-match to claim the honours back from your son ....

    Cracking half day out
    Great fun day out for our teenage boys. This place is just great fun, run by a lovely bunch of guys who are clearly passionate about what they do. If you want smiles on faces and enjoy a bit of motorsport you can’t go wrong!
    Many thanks for your 5* review! It was so great to have you all here for our junior rally experience and we are delighted to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed yourself. We hope to see you all again soon, perhaps for one of our other events like the 4x4 off road experience?

    Fantastic day out
    What a fantastic day! I was lucky enough to have been given a 4x4 off roading and rally experience for my birthday and it didn’t disappoint. The weather was awful which only made it more fun. Driving a Land Rover Discovery around a tricky course and then drifting a souped up Citroen around a gravel track made for a fixed grin on my face. When I got back in my road car, I had to tell myself to take it steadily back home. My thanks to Holly, Matt and Owen for an amazing day. Your friendly nature, expert tuition and determination to ensure that the best time was had is to be congratulated. I wish you all every success and look forward to the next time.

    Brilliant half day with the guys at Cotswold Driving Experience. Entire team was marvellous and hell-bent on making sure everyone had a blast which we all did. Excellent experience which I’d love to do again!

I had a great 1/2 day experience at Cotswold Driving Experiences.

As I am starting the journey to get my official Rally License I had more than my fair share of questions! Holly (who answered my initial query), Mat (who was the hands-on organiser for the day) and Aaron (The very patient instructor) all fielded my queries with genuinely helpful info.

Andy the mechanic also spent a lot of time with me between drives talking about how to progress further.

Driving wise, the venue is very open so no solid obstacles to hit (just lots of tyres) which means they really can push you on without fear of any nasty mishaps.

Overall I would thoroughly recommend anyone who is interested in Rallying to give it a go at the Cotswold Rally experience.

@ the team - See you in February 2024 for my BARS exam!

Just had the most fantastic time on the half rally day . Brilliantly organised , friendly and felt really safe under the expert tuition of Chris . Plenty of opportunities to drive despite there being 8 of us driving - 2 cars - 2 instructors short breaks in between to use the loo and have a drink in the warm clubhouse !
Highly recommended this day out- I’m still smiling especially after taking a turn around the track as a passenger at the end of the day ! Thankyou all !!

A truly amazing experience, expert coaching from incredibly knowledgeable people that truly want to see you go as fast as you can. Expect the following; to exceed your limit and end up sideways, to receive coaching and improve your time, to smile from ear to ear and to enjoy the speed of the stripped out C2s!

Amazing day doing both 4 x 4 and Rally driving experience. Great fun with instructor Mark who was professional, relaxed and amusing to spend the day with. Very wet day which made the 4x4 great fun and the Rallying very challenging. Can’t fault the team there and the way they formatted the day worked perfectly for our team of 5. Hope to return to take on the Rally course again in the dry!
Thanks Ed

Well organised friendly outfit who did their best to make everyone feel comfortable and have an adrenaline filled excellent day. I did the full day rally experience and would highly recommend it as it gives you lots of opportunity to get out there and finesse your skills. Big shout out to Mark for excellent instruction.

Holly and the team were superb. Easy to deal with from the outset they made our event stress free. We had a group of 24 and everyone had a great day with loads of time behind the wheel.

Lunch was top quality and plenty to go round. The instructors had a great manner and were really engaging.

Thank you all!
