Lock In Your $99 Rally Experience Now

THE RALLY EXPERIENCE

Our rally experience is the first time in history that you have been able to drive a real rally car on a rally stage for less than a hundred dollars. You get to drive three laps in one of our Subaru WRX rally cars around our infield rally stage here at the Rally Ranch.

Once you've completed your three laps behind the driver's seat and you've become a real rally driver, you get to swap with one of our pro rally instructors who will take you on a ride along and show you the limit of the cars on the same rally stage. You'll get an understanding of what is the pace of a real rally driver in the same car you just drove and that'll help you understand what level you can aspire to when you join us for rally training and one of our rally school classes.

THE RALLY READY TEAM

Welcome to a family of people excited to see you succeed behind the wheel of a rally car. There are no attitudes, big egos, or "too cool for school" race car drivers at the Rally Ranch. Collectively, the Rally Ready team has decades of experience, track records, and championships in rally, off-road, drifting, time attack, and circuit racing so you'll learn from a team of people who understand that their biggest win is seeing it "click" for you and guiding you into the best route possible for you to get maximum seat time and enjoyment behind the wheel.

From the first phone call or email, you'll be greeted with someone who is excited to understand how to best match your experience and expectations to the perfect program. From private 1-on-1 training to group classes, corporate events, and bachelor parties, we're all about customizing the experience and training to the highest level.

WHAT YOU’LL DRIVE

Unlike many programs that teach you to drive one car on one track, the Rally Ranch offers a huge variety of vehicles to train in to ensure that you're more than just a dang ol' 1-trick pony.

Rally Cars

From AWD turbo Subaru rally cars to FWD Ford Fiestas, every rally car is built from the ground up to be optimized for training at the Rally Ranch. Reiger Dampers, M-Sport underbody protection, Group N Subaru engine mounts, and Sabelt safety equipment keep things setup for maximum sendage.

TROPHY TRUCKS

Rally Ready is the only training facility in the world to offer full-time access to a 6100 class Spec Trophy Truck exclusively for driver training. Texas Dave has competed in Baja for the past decade including a win at the Baja 500 in 2019 in the Spec Trophy Truck Class. Hop behind the wheel of their BMS Spec Trophy Truck and experience 40" of tires and 3' of suspension travel for yourself.

UTVs

The Swiss Army Knife of motorsports, Rally Ready has experience in UTVs from racing them in rallies to the New Zealand 1000 and beyond. While our fleet is ever-evolving, reach out to see what vehicles we're using or schedule private training in your own UTV.

WHERE YOU'LL GO FROM HERE

No experience Necessary - Come as you are whether you've never seen a clutch pedal before or you're an experienced pro driver. We scale our curriculum to fit the needs of each student to maximize the value of your experience. We've taught everyone from brand new drivers to current Formula One competitors, and everybody in between. You're not the fastest driver we've ever seen but you're sure not the slowest, either!

Choosing a class is as simple as how much time and money do you want to spend, and how much seat time do you want? Our 1-day and 2-day class formats are all similar, each just increases the seat time and lesson detail of the previous. The 1-day rally school is a great place to get comfortable with left-foot braking and develop foundation skills. The 2-day rally school and 2-day advanced rally school are more intense with a focus on individual skill mastery, muscle memory, and tailored instruction to apply these skills to whatever car, discipline, or level you plan on taking your driving to. Again, all of our one and two classes are a great fit for both beginners and pros alike as we'll tailor each exercise to your skill level. Everyone is welcome.

ABOUT

THE RALLY RANCH

For all of its open spaces, wide-open beauty and rich, diverse history, Texas has always lacked one thing: world class gravel roads. And as such, rally racing has struggled to find a home in Texas. Infatuated with the sport, Rally Ready founder Dave Carapetyan traveled the country starting in 2004 competing in rallies and learning what makes rally racing the most incredible sport on the planet. Each time the team would come home from a race, there was a collective yearning for a homegrown rally track here in Texas. So we decided to build it.

Our first classes were in Spring of 2012, but it wasn't until June 2015 that Rally Ready moved into our permanent home, the Rally Ranch. On 140 acres just 15 minutes east of Circuit of the Americas, the Rally Ranch is home to rally racing in Texas. With everything from wide open ranch pastures for consequence-free beginner lessons to narrow tree-lined rally stages with jumps, crests and blind corners, the Rally Ranch offers a sampling of world class terrain built specifically for the rally enthusiast.
