Rally Skills Program

Goals of Rally Skills Program

The Rally Skills Program's goals are to provide a safe space for young people (ages 12 and over) and adults to learn and develop skills driving on gravel, with an emphasis on providing a gateway into Motorsport. As it is on private property no civil licence is required or previous competition history.

By developing a driver education program, we aim to educate drivers on the skills required to drive on gravel, as well as learn general driving skills. We will provide students an outlet to learn in a safe environment, being taught by experienced instructors in a family friendly environment.

Students will use a supplied vehicle during the Program, to get experience and decide if they would like to pursue the sport, before having to outlay equipment and a vehicle, which can be a barrier to people participating.

The program aims to provide on ongoing support to assist students of the program to continue to develop skills and further their careers. We hope to start a buddy system where a participant can continue to be mentored by another club member to help them increase their skills and continue into the next level of Motorsport.

The program consists of 3 full day sessions/lessons with final event day when students get the opportunity to compete in a Walkerville All Cars Club Khanacross. The program will run once per year. A maximum of 12 students, split into two groups of 6.
