This is a very special year for rally and off-road driving legends GwynneSpeed, as they celebrate an incredible 25 years in business. And what better way to mark the occasion than being in the Let’s Go Out spotlight?
GwynneSpeed was established back in 1994 purely to prepare rally cars for racing, but soon started offering rally driving experience days, using all their knowledge and experience of the industry. You might have spotted them on TV as they’ve featured quite a few times – one of the more memorable occasions was a bride and groom exchanging vows while zooming round the track on Don’t Tell the Bride!
GwynneSpeed had grown over the decades into an award-wining family-owned business that prides itself on giving visitors the best possible driving experience, whether that’s in rally cars or 4x4s.
Their hard work and dedication over the years as paid off, as TripAdvisor recently awarded them their 5th consecutive Certificate of Excellence for the Rally School. They’ve even earnt a place in the TripAdvisor “Hall of Fame” for continued Excellence for the Rally School. Impressive stuff!
So what’s going on at GwynneSpeed this summer? We recommend trying one of the following experiences – or go for all three if you can’t decide between them! With purpose-built facilities in the beautiful Cotswolds and expert instructors, you can be sure of a great day out.
Off Road Driving Experience
You might think you’re a good driver, but how will you get on when faced with near vertical ascents, tight spaces and a host of ‘axle twisters’?! Now’s your chance to really push your limits, with an Off-Road Driving Experience based in the picturesque Cotswold Water Park.
The course was built specifically to challenge 4x4 vehicles, with plenty of obstacles along the way, not to mention lovely views of the lakes! Even if you’re a total novice, the friendly instructors will talk you through a thorough safety briefing before you’re let loose on the course.
Rally Driving School
GwynneSpeed has its roots in Rally Driving so it’s only right that we highlight their award-winning rally school. Suitable for ages 10 and up, you will enjoy hands-on training given by the expert instructors.
You can choose between a half-day or full-day authentic rally experience, with special packages available for kids. They can even accommodate disabled drivers – whatever your ability, you’ll be hurtling round those hairpin bends and having the time of your life!
Combing the fun of paintballing with the scary thrill of chasing Zombies, this activity really does have it all! You’ll get to really test your shooting skills and steady hand as you’re towed around the course on a purpose-built combat trailer, aiming long-range paintball guns at those horrible zombies lurking in the undergrowth. Can you find and shoot them all?
Play as a team or as individuals and see how many points you can get – great fun for stag parties, hen dos and birthdays.
Based in such lovely surroundings, why not rent one of the nearby lakeside lodges or hotels and stay for the whole weekend? The perfect excuse to try everything GwynneSpeed has to offer.
