Welcome to Chris Birkbeck’s Rally School

Chris Birkbeck’s rally school on the edge of North Yorkshire has been providing rally driving experiences and rally experience gifts since 1990. Our privately owned venue is not an old airfield, but a purpose built test facility. Rally teams and Team Birkbeck, all test rally cars here prior to events. The surface is authentic gravel and includes high speed sections, hairpins to perfect your handbrake technique and watersplashes on those wet days.


Our cars are Subaru Impreza four wheel drive, Ford Focus front wheel drive and Ford Ka for Junior rally driving experiences, all built by Team Birkbeck with roll cages, rally suspension, hydraulic handbrakes and Peltor intercom systems. Refreshments and bed and breakfast accommodation are available in-site at The Arches Country House, owned by the Birkbeck family and converted from the original farm barn buildings.

Our location on the edge of North Yorkshire, surrounded by open countryside and free from noise restrictions makes our rally school the perfect location for your rally driving experience day.
