Just receive final details and invoice. All paid up and very much looking forward to it and to meeting you all.

I see It starts at 8:30, so will probably stay locally rather than do battle with the traffic of SW London. Is the Travelodge where folks are staying?

Cheers, SW

Monies safely received thank you from Cameron's wife Elisabeth & SecondWind.

Travelodge is a bit barren ... a Little Chef with Burger King & a Shell petrol station only. Premier Inn a few minutes further down in Kempston has a couple of pub options for food & drinks fyi.

Thanks Sutton, message & payment safely received.

Rhino-man - you are not able to drive on the circuits without your coach sat alongside you. The group days, which this is, gives the 100 mins approx. driving time across the day. Individual 1-2-1 days give either 3 hours or 6 hours driving time, depending on the course chosen.

Jo, prompted by your message above, and after looking at your website, I think I'd rather do the 1 on 1 instruction as I fancy a bit more car time and tend to enjoy a more intense approach. I'll get in touch via PM when I've figured out dates.
Thanks,
Tom

Understood Tom .. hear from you when you're ready ... FYI we're booking into May now as March & April are 99% fully booked. Bear that in mind when you're looking/thinking about dates.

What are people doing about insurance for tomorrow?

Classicline seemed to think as it wasn't organised directly through ARDS they wouldn't cover it.

Any suggestions before I ring Competition Car Insurance, part of Towergate as referred to on the CAT website. UPDATE: I rang Competition Car Insurance and they no longer offer cover for a single day.

Further Update: It looks like self insurance in the best approach.

You can never say never, but Health & Safety is our highest priority. 4200 clients in 13 years = zero incidents at Millbrook in client vehicles.

Colin or Paul will be sat alongside you when you are taking your turn through the exercises & looking out for their safety as well as your own Smile

Some clients take out insurance, others don't. Whatever gives you peace of mind. Ryan Motorsport will provide quotes for cover at Millbrook if you wish to enquire.

Weather is looking favourable: http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2652087

See you at the Security gate x 08:15 tomorrow.

Hello everyone - very much looking forward to our day with CAT Training tomorrow.

I'm going to collect my car from Jaz this afternoon where it has been checked over and serviced, etc in readiness, then driving up to the Best Western Moore Place Hotel near Millbrook.

I look forward to meeting you all tomorrow (or tonight for a beer in the bar if you are staying at the same place).

On the issue of insurance, I looked into this in some detail and concluded that "self insurance" is the only sensible way to go. That and a light(er) right foot.

Thanks Jo. That's very helpful to know.

Secondwind - It seems a few of us are staying at the Best Western. I`m not going to get away from London until around 9pm this evening but happy to meet others tomorrow morning before setting off down the road to Millbrook.

It should be a really enjoyable experience tomorrow. Colin and I suspect, Paul, are great tutors. I've learned to listen to Colin and others which in turn helped me understand what the car was saying to me, and then to react accordingly.

I'm looking forward to it and also with meeting you.

If tomorrow is like other CAT days I've been to, initial training will be on wide open areas so self insurance shouldn't be an issue.

I've got a bit of a long night to get there: fly in from Belfast tonight, head to collect the car from Reading, and then drive up to Luton!

Very much looking forward to it though, and meeting up with fellow 993'ers. thumbsup

Bloody hell Harryk, that's a fair old trek.

Gotta love the size of the car park spaces at Best Western.

Just wanted to say thanks to the guys at CAT: it was a great day out last Saturday, enjoyable and informative in equal measure.

We had a really nice group too, was lovely to meet you all and admire your cars. Hopefully I'll get over to a meet and our paths will cross again.

Would highly recommend CAT to any enthusiast!!!
