"Best driving school bang for the buck. I have taken just about every 2 and 4 wheel driving school in North America over the last 50 years and without a doubt Rally Ready had the most profound impact. Dave runs a smart program that is effective and fun. Besides being a great guy, Dave has built a performance culture in his team that inspires everyone to excel. As a parent I could not ask for a better environment for my kids, as a student I found the learning experience rewarding and refreshing."

Our rally experience gives you the thrills and spills of professional rally racing in a fun, efficient, easy to digest format. If you're new to motorsport or rallying and just want to get your feet wet, this is the class for you. We promise that we will do everything we can to make you want to come back for more. 2.5 hours.
If you're committed to learning car control, our half-day clinic will give you twice as much seat time as our 2.5 hour class and give you a solid foundation on which to develop your rally and racing skills. Perfect for the avid autocrosser who wants to improve their car control, the Lone Star Rallycross competitor who wants to make it those last couple spots to the top of the podium or the motorsport enthusiast who just wants to know how it's done, the half day rally clinic is the wildest time you can have before lunch!
Day 1 focuses on traction sensing and basic weight transfer. Here, we teach what we call the Aquarium Technique for managing smooth weight transfer.
Day 2 takes everything you learn in day 1 and adds high speed, finite weight transfer on a dynamic slalom. We finish the day with introduction and mastery of the pendulum turn or Scandinavian Flick. No, seriously, you can learn to Scandinavian Flick in two days!
Two words: SEAT TIME. Day 3 is all about muscle memory. Take what you've learned and drill it home. Build more speed, make smaller corrections, dial in your inputs. Day 3 is when it really gels and you'll find yourself habitually doing things you couldn't dream of two days before.
Our premier driver training program, Rally Ready University offers intense driver training in a one to three-day format so you can become a professional gravel-slaying machine. Our University program builds an immensely solid foundation on which to develop your skills in rallying or racing of any sort. The seat time in our 3-day rally school is equivalent to more than an entire season of professional rallying but unlike a race, you have professional instructors teaching you the right habits, breaking the wrong ones and helping you to make, correct and realize mistakes so that when you hit the rally stages, it's all muscle memory. On all four days of class, lunch is included. Meals are prepared fresh in-house with locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. Vegetarian, gluten-free and other options are available upon request.
"Just a burn-your-pants-off good time!
Dave and his crew of skilled instructors bring tons of real-life racing experience to a racing school environment, and even though I've never raced cars before, they made the learning experience a total blast from start to finish.
I did the 1-day class, and I really wish I'd done at least 2 days with them -- it was that good.
But in one day I got tons of seat time learning and mastering the essential skills of off-road racing, with patient, experienced instructors in the seat next to me, in at least 5 different cars. Our class of 7 people had zero experience racing before, and we were all drifting through turns, flooring it through corners, power braking and kicking up rooster tails of dirt with huge grins plastered our faces the whole time!
Highly recommend this incredibly professional team of racing teachers, who really stick with you to make sure you learn the skills and have a complete blast while you're doing it. I'll definitely be going back for more of this killer experience :)"
