Short notice opportunity ...... we have a group training day tomorrow & one of the attendees has had to pull out for family health reasons. Anyone available & interested in joining the day? Place cost is £430 including VAT. You need to be at Millbrook in Bedfordshire for an 08:15 start & will be sharing the day with 5 other peeps. Message or email me if you'd like to know more & are interested in the place. I will also be offering this on the forums we work with, so it will be first come first served Smile

This is the group training format you will be joining:

Performance Driver ‘Track’ Day
An action-packed day run by CAT Driver Training Ltd at Millbrook Proving Ground.

The day is a fast moving experience for 6 owners and their cars to introduce the secrets of performance driving. It is designed to be informative, exciting and fun. The group size is purposefully kept small so that the maximum can be obtained from the day in a highly personalised environment.

There is access to the 5 unique circuits at the renowned Millbrook Proving Ground, a venue that is not normally accessible for 'track days' and the general public.

Activities designed for the different circuits are:
• Learn threshold braking from high speed on the Mile Straight
• High speed driving, potentially to the maximum of your car, on the banked circuit of the High Speed Circuit
• Drive the demanding Alpine Route circuit with its hills, and variety of corners from hairpins to long and sweeping
• Take on the tight, twisty and challenging Handling Circuit
• Put your car through its paces on the open spaces of the Steering Pad/Mile Straight Apron

An instructor will accompany you on all the circuits, and the objective is to teach you how to get the best from your car and develop your performance driving skills in a controlled environment and at a pace you are comfortable with.

Short presentations in vehicle dynamics will help you to understand the relationship between driver input and vehicle balance and control. From this comes the appreciation of how to safely drive your vehicle at grip limit within the controlled confines of a track environment.

At the end of the day, your new found skills can be put to the test in a timed shoot out around a gymkhana-style course laid out on the Steering Pad/Mile Straight Apron.

Included in the day are:
• Professional in car tuition
• Access to 5 unique circuits at Millbrook Proving Ground
• Lunch and refreshments during the day
• Timed end of day shoot out
• Full emergency services on hand all day
• 1 hour 40 minutes driving time with your personal instructor

Pricing is as follows:
3 participating members = £475 pp
4 participating members = £460 pp
6 participating members = £430 pp

Note on noise limits ... to quote me "there is no limit unless you are a Le Mans Prototype or an F1 car". If anyone thinks they can compete at that level on noise, be sure to mention it when booking!

Some of the reviews from the groups run in 2019:

I recently spent a day with CAT participating in the Performance Driver "Track" Day at Millbrook. It was an excellent driving experience and a most enjoyable day. The team are friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. They also keep you safe. For me the most interesting aspect of the day were the engineering explanations on why vehicles perform as they do particularly at high speed. A great day. - David Hamer

From the first phone call to Lynne and the last goodbye from Jo, Colin and Paul the day was just perfect.Very well balanced mix of the technical / engineering side of driving , track craft and a large helping of good humor.Group of six from PCGB (Cheers Phil) split in the two smaller groups spent the day finding out what our cars are really made of.Can't fault the day with CAT DT.and everybody left with a new level of confidence weather a seasoned track day driver or a Sunday morning cruiser.Colin and Paul will put you at ease from the start and carry on at your pace,Millbrook is the purfect setting for the CAT driving program and you will leave a better and more aware driver. - Audi Man

There’s no way to dress this up. If you want to get the most out of your performance car and experience things it can do that would quite simply not be possible anywhere other than a racetrack then this is the place to come. We had a fantastic day with a PCGB organised day recently. I met new friends and learnt what my GT3 feels like under limit conditions and most importantly how to enjoy them safely. I will be back for more. Thank you again. - Phil Farrell
