When my little brother asked me to be his best man I was absolutely made up for him, and when it came to organising his stag do I couldn't wait to get everything sorted. A night out with the lads was a given, but I wanted to treat him to something he'd really remember before hand.
After looking into a couple of different ideas I decided to book a rally driving experience for the two of us because we're both massive petrol heads, and I knew he'd love the chance to get behind the wheel of a rally car. Because I'd organised a night out with the lads too I knew he wouldn't mind having to put up with his big brother for a couple of hours either!
On the day of his stag party we arrived at the rally centre nice and early, and we were both raring to get our rally driving experience under way. The day started with a full briefing from a qualified rally driving instructor who told us how to get the best out of the cars without getting in too much trouble. After we'd completed our briefing it was straight down to action though, and we took it in turns to have stints at the wheel.
Being the kind hearted big brother that I am I let the groom go first so I watched him tear round the gravel rally circuit from the safety of the briefing room. But before I knew it it was my turn to take the wheel, and with the instructor in the co-driver's seat I learnt how to master skills like power slides and hand brake turns, which was even more fun than it sounds!
We both absolutely loved the rally driving experience and when we told the rest of the lads how much fun it was we got some serious stick for not taking them with us. It was worth all the stick though and don't think my little brother will be forgetting his stag do in a hurry, what a day!
