Don’t worry about who’s going to win the Acropolis Rally Greece. Or who might – or might not – sign Ott Tänak next. And put your predictions for this year’s amazing American Rally Association title battle to one side for a moment.

We have news.

And it’s news of the big and important flavor.

Today (that’s Saturday September 10) is DirtFish Rally School 2023 calendar day.

I know! It’s the news and the moment we’ve all been waiting for. We can all hop on the website right here and land ourselves a day aboard a Subaru BRZ in January – the perfect way to deal with the post-holiday blues.

Three days behind the wheel of a WRX STI more your thing? Free end of February? What are you waiting for? Monday February 27, you could be power sliding your way around the Boneyard.

DirtFish Rally School owner Steve Rimmer’s excited about the year ahead.

“It’s always a big thing for us when we can reveal the next year’s calendar,” said Steve. “The team here at DirtFish has been working really hard – and listening really hard – to what our clients, partners and friends want. And the calendar we’ve put together reflects that thought process.

“There’s nobody in the world who hasn’t been impacted by the global pandemic, but I can’t tell you how impressed I’ve been with the resilience of team DirtFish. We’re going to emerge from the cloud COVID cast over us stronger and more able to deliver an outstanding and, for me, world-beating Rally School experience.

“All that’s left to say now is: come, join us and see for yourself.”

One of the most popular DirtFish additions in 2022 has been the female-only classes. With most of this year’s All-Women programs selling out within hours, they were among the first to be listed for 2023.

“This year has been amazing for the women of DirtFish,” said Women in Motorsport co-ordinator Josie Rimmer. “In March we ran our first Women’s Month, including a day-long summit with some of the world’s most influential female competitors attending.

“This very website was guest edited by Michèle Mouton!

“But maybe the biggest mark we made was with the All-Women classes. We have empowered more women than ever to come and enjoy this School, love this sport and drive these sensational Subarus as sideways as possible.

“And next year’s going to be even bigger and even better.”


It’s the same from the other seat – the one without the wheel – as our partnership with two of planet earth’s best-known and most experienced co-drivers (Rhianon and Alex Gelsomino, like you didn’t know!) continues.

The awesome Oz Rally Pro classes will be back and the Gelsominos will be telling you a good few of their secrets to success from life behind the pacenote book.

Rhianon said: “Working with DirtFish is an absolute pleasure and Alex and I are stoked to be back for more next season. There’s nothing like the sense of achievement when you spend two days with co-drivers and see them grow and grow in confidence and ability across that time. We can’t wait.”

And nor can we. And nor should you. Jump in right here.
