Hi All, I've received a request to run our much enjoyed group format for Porsche enthusiasts - overview is below for your review.

Date proposed is Saturday 9th May. If you'd like to join the group please post up and ask any questions you may have.

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

CAT Driver Training now in its 11th year, is run by Colin and Jo Hoad. Colin used to work for a leading motor manufacturer in the UK as a Vehicle Evaluator and Driver Trainer and has gained extensive experience and qualifications in driver instruction. This includes being certificated to instruct at Millbrook. His life has been spent working with his passion: motor cars - from racing minis to the race preparation of performance cars. He has much experience of vehicles on both road and track and brings a very different approach to driver enjoyment.

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 100+mph 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 a 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. This will be conducted in one of CAT Driver Training's track prepared cars (normally a Caterham 7, but can be a Monaro or Subaru Impreza).

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 in one of CAT's track prepared cars
• Full emergency services on hand all day
• 1 hour 40 minutes driving time with your personal instructor

Pricing is as follows:
3 participating members = £435 pp
4 participating members = £410 pp
6 participating members = £390 pp

Performance Driver 'Track' Day Schedule

08:30-09:15 Coffee, Introduction, Licence Check, Scrutineering, Safety Briefing & Objectives of the Day
09:15-09:20 Drive to Circuits
09:20-10:40 Mile Straight
10:40-11:45 High Speed Circuit
11:45-13:15 HandlingCircuit
13:15-14:00 Lunch
14:00-15:00 Alpine Route
15:00-15:45 Understeer/Oversteer
15:45-16:45 Gymkhana timed Shoot Out on the Steering Pad/Mile Straight Apron
16:50 Presentation & Debrief
Any Questions
End

Timings & Circuit order may be subject to change on the day depending on circuit activity

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!

The day will be for a group of 6. Arrival time will be 08:15 with finish time approx. 17:00 hours.

Payment will need to be paid in full by 10th April 2015 directly to CAT at the very latest (Payment can be made by bank transfer, cheque or debit and credit cards. The latter attract merchant fees of up to 2.25% of the value, depending on the card being used). A non-refundable deposit of £200 should be made now to reserve your place with the balance paid by 10th April 2015. Note: this day is for a maximum of six people.

First six reserves that do not get a place this time will get first refusal on the next Millbrook "PDTD" event which could be in the summer, if there is demand. Other reserves will be contacted about future events as they are planned.

Anyone thinking of taking part in this driver training should seriously consider it. Probably the best mod you could add to your 911.
Having attended in the past I can say that it is money very well spent.

If it wasn't for the Army v Navy rugby at Twickenham on that day I would be going along for a refresher!
