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?

Our Cornering Masterclass held over one day at the world renowned Millbrook Proving Ground, provides you with the opportunity to unlock the secrets of fast safe consistent grip limit lap times. The group size is for a maximum of 6 owners.

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

Price £410 per person

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!

Payment will need to be paid in full by 10th September 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 September 2015. Note: this day is for a maximum of six people.

3 places have been taken but 3 remain available. Please post up if you'd like to join this group.

1. Mr Pub - awaiting deposit
2. NY2011 - awaiting deposit
3. Millomboy - Paid in full
4. Jcbaldock - awaiting deposit

For those thinking "will or wont I" - just do it.

I have to admit to doing a few of CAT's courses and in my experience its a real investment and blooming good fun Thumb

Great news & thanks for the quick response - I'm at a wedding Friday, so Monday will be fine, if you're not back on Thursday.

If no other 911'ers are interested I'll start offering the remaining 2 places to the other forums we work with.

See you all tomorrow - I'll be travelling up in the morning.

Just washed the car - polished the exhaust tips - hoovered the carpets - polished the glass - Sad I know, but I'm ready to go.

Just got to go and get some petrol and give the brakes a dry Smile

Another fantastic day from Colin, Paul and Jo at CAT! This really built well on the first Performance Driver day the four of us did in the Spring, and added in a serious amount of trail braking and (deliberate) tyre squealing. Around the steering pad in a 993, it was almost like I was in CAT's caterham. It felt really "connected". Applying that to the handling circuit and then the alpine loops was another step up in skill. Difficult, but equally rewarding when got right! The "competition" to get the most consistent (not fastest) lap times on the handling circuit nailed what was most important about the day. Many thanks again to CAT, and I'd seriously encourage any 911 owner to do both days! Great also to see Jcbaldock (most consistent by a country mile!), Millomboy, and Mr Pub again. Anyone up for the drifting course next year?

I agree with what Nik said. Really think I am starting to get somewhere and understand what the car can do. Well done Jon on the consistency test. To only have a difference of 0.22 seconds over three laps is mightily impressive. I was pleased to be under a second. To answer your question Nik, yes I would be interested on the drifting course. Thanks again to the CAT team and the great company.
