Barbara is available for personal instruction either on the track or the rally circuit.

Barbara's professional rally driving career started back in 1990 when she landed her first instructor job with First Time Racing, a company that specialised in locating future talent throught a comprehensive driver scholarship. From those early days Barbara has not only built an accomplished driving career but has also amassed an enviable reputation as one of the UK's leading competition driving instructors.

Now you can join Barbara and experience the exhilaration of motorsport first hand, your driving experience can range from saloon race cars, loose surface rally cars, or from a range of specialist vehicles such as 4x4 and skid cars.
