Driveme to become BARS school in 2017
AGBO Stages winner and Driveme owner Paul Evans will see his driving experience centre become a recognised British Association of Rally Schools venue in 2017.
BARS currently regulates the BARS exam that has to be passed by all drivers before they can compete on UK rallies. Evans’ Driveme centre based in Stafford currently operates Red Letter Day-style supercar driving experiences, but Evans’ rally background has encouraged him to incorporate more rallying.
“My son George is starting in Junior Autograss this year and it’s nice to give something back,” said Evans. “Phil Price and Bill Gwynne both encouraged me onto the board of BARS and we’re looking forward to opening properly in 2017.”
As well as offering BARS tests, Evans has offered up a number of prizes to Junior F1000 drivers. Last month he provided a free test where over 15 juniors drove at the venue in Stafford.
“We’re offering the venue for a press day for the F1000s,” added Evans. “The winner of the championship will receive a free driving day with their car for family and sponsors.”
Evans won the AGBO Stages at Weston Park in March
