CAT Driver Training Day at Millbrook

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I just recently done a Perfomance Driver Club day at Millbrook with CAT Driver Training and had an absolute blast.

 

I am looking for anyone interested in a Cornering Masterclass day -- will get prices and dates availability, meanwhile here some info

 

 

Cornering Masterclass Day

Enjoyed the Performance Driver 'Track' Day and would like to progress to the next stage advancing your skills further? Or perhaps you're not getting the most from your track days, and would like to hone your performance driving skills in a safe and challenging environment? Through presentations and demonstrations in our cars, and nurtured training sessions in your car our instructors will guide you through a structured, fun and exciting training experience, dissecting the cornering process to a professional level. Polarised training designed to galvanise the relationship between minimised driver input and vehicle stability, with presentations in advanced vehicle dynamics and motor industry exercises designed to challenge both you and your car.

 

A full day experience for you and your car:

Professional in car tuition

Access to your favourite circuits

Professional motor industry training exercises

Lunch and refreshments throughout the day

Full emergency services on hand all day

Exclusive facilities

1 hours 40 mins driving time with your personal instructor

 

Member Prices

Am interested also. Have had 2 half days on Milbrook in the past, not in the CS though .....in my Volvo Estate! Was still a complete hoot....amazing what you learn about your car and what it will/won't do ...e.g. my V50 will continue to brake (after a point) in a panic stop, even if you take your foot off the pedal). The Alpine and handling tracks keep you rather honest.

Thanks P&Cs,

 

I’ll check the family calendar when I’m back home on Thursday (currently away with work) to confirm whether 29th is ok for us.

Likewise. Maxing the car on the bowl would be quite a rush!

Thanks Jo,

 

unfortunately september 29th isn’t possible for me as I will have been away with work the whole week before and won’t be ‘allowed out to play’ by my (much better) other half????

 

might there be alternative dates available?

 

thanks, Jason

There might be an option for a 3 person day on Sunday 7th October ... would that work better?

Hi Jo, 

 

Thanks for signing up and offering to put something together for the guys.  

 

I'd be quite interested in attending myself if it's an October date.

Morning All

 

Looks like 7th October could be the one then but it would only have 3 spaces.  Let's get into August and then I'll be clearer on being able to offer this date or another October option.  

 

Back once I have news.

I’m afraid I’m wrong - our family calendar has a commitment that wknd - the shuttleworth ‘wings & wheels’ vintage race day so I’m a no-go on this occasion I’m afraid ?

Yes, I'd be interested in stuff like this. Also, my insurance policy doesn't cover track days but am guessing one could either buy some at the course or can anyone recommend an insurer who covers specifically for track days? Many thanks, Stu

Hi Stu - I have been looking in track day insurance, there's a few options out there like A-plan, Moris, Adrian Flux  -- make sure to mention the organiser is part of ADTO (check this tho!)
