Relaxation is all very well, but for many of us there comes a time when enough is enough and we feel the need for speed. So, how about some expert race, rally or 4x4 instruction from professional driver? Now you can do just that in southern Charente.
Peter Bennett is a qualified A.R.D.S./ B.A.R.S. S Instructor, and has been both a Formula 1 Safety Car driver and racing driver throughout Europe. It’s hardly surprising, then, that he’s perfectly at ease behind the wheel, no matter at what speed he’s travelling or where the car happens to be heading. For a racing driver this kind of mind-set is just one of the many core skills essential for the precise control of a fast car or motorcycle, whether on the racetrack or attacking the kind of terrain more familiar to rally-drivers. There’s a lot to learn, obviously, but if you’ve ever wanted to develop your skills on the race-track or a rally stage, you can now do just that, under Peter’s expert tuition, right here in the region.
So, how much can you really pack into a day? Enough to satisfy the most ardent petrol-head, by the sound of it: You can experience the excitement of piloting a race car around the Circuit de Haute Saintonge, the thrill of rally driving, or challenge yourself on a natural 4x4 course. You can choose from a TRY-IT option to full day experiences.
So now, here in the Charente you can race, rally and 4x4 all year round, a new highlight for your holiday here in this magical part of the world.
