Rrrrallye Youth Drive is held at the Grampian Transport Museum in Alford , the first session is at 9am and the second at 1pm. Each session lasts around 3 hours. In stress free surroundings and with the friendly and expert guidance of a qualified instructor from Roadwise Driver Training, the youngsters have the opportunity to get behind the wheel and become familiar with the control and performance of a vehicle. The event also incorporates an interactive discussion on driving theory, information and hands on experience on vehicle maintenance and a demonstraion drive in Alford and surrounding area focusing on road hazard awareness.

The Garioch & North Marr Community Safety Group, with financial support from Aberdeenshire's Marr Area Committee Small Projects Fund and the Monymusk Thrift Shop funded the event for 12 youngsters aged between 14 and 17 from the North Marr area. The youngsters were nominated by the Head Teacher at Alford Academy and the Rector of the Gordon Schools in Huntly.

Phot of a young driver on the track A quote from the mother of this young driver:
"Thank you so much for today, I am so glad my youngster got a place. He's not always the most confident or outspoken lad, but he came back beaming and so proud of driving the sponsor round the track on his own (just need to add, the instructor was in the car as well) A real boost to his confidence and self esteem as well as a terrific start to his driver training."

The Rrrrallye Youth Drive is organised by the Rrrrallye Team headed up by Linda Harper. Thanks to Linda and to Dave and Jim, the instructors from Roadwise Driver Training for running the event.
