911uk are happy to recommend CAT Driver Training for your Driver Training requirements.

Get the best from your car – with 1:1 driver training from CAT Driver Training
www.catdrivertraining.co.uk

Looking for new ways to improve your driving performance? Want to be faster on the track, stay safer out on the road/or simply discover the grip limit capability of your Porsche? Explore your potential with CAT Driver Training and gain a greater understanding of just how much you and your car can do!

You will have seen us on Fifth Gear. If you read Evo Magazine, you will recognize our Chief Instructor, Colin Hoad, as one of their Experts.

We provide driver training for race drivers, race engineers, performance car drivers and individuals wanting to improve their driving for both leisure and work, as well as the motor industry and corporate events. All training is 1:1* and takes place out on the road or on the tracks at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire, UK. **



Assume nothing – learn everything!

• Learn how to keep your car stable and balanced at all times and in all conditions – with minimal driver input for maximum performance.
• Understand better the relationship between vehicle dynamics and driver inputs.
• Step beyond your comfort zone to a new relationship with your car – for better performance.

At CAT we help you bridge the gap between driving a vehicle at its limits and exploring the dynamic reactions when you input into the controls. Using your own vehicle or one of our Caterham’s, Subaru, Lotus, Saab or Ford, we coach and mentor you 1:1 with your instructor alongside you in the car. Plus, because of the nature of the Millbrook tracks, during your training, you can stop on track at any time to discuss aspects of your driving. No matter what race circuit you are looking to drive you will gain the tools to analyse and drive it for the best results.

Out on the road or at speed on the track, all our training is structured and safe – yet immensely challenging and enjoyable. We teach things that other trainers don’t even mention, and we explain everything to suit your own current skills and know-how. You don’t just learn new techniques, but you also understand why they’re important and what’s really happening underneath you while you’re driving. You enjoy a bespoke programme based around what you’d like to achieve.

• Advanced Road and Track Development
• Track Day Drivers: Novice; Intermediate; Warrior/Race Driver
• Performance Driver
• 5 day Academy Programme
• Nurburgring Preparation
• Drifting & Over Grip Limit Handling
• Evaluation Driver Training – for motor industry engineers
• Fleet/Company Car Driver Training

Colin Hoad, the Director of CAT Driver Training, has spent over 25 years in the specialist motor industry. Motor racing at the age of 18 he enjoyed a rewarding career in motorsport preparation and management. He then moved into the vehicle evaluation and driver training industry with a major Japanese motor manufacturer.

Teaching industry standard advanced driving techniques on circuit, Proving Ground and out on the public highway, Colin’s unique training qualifications from the motor industry has seen him working throughout the UK, extensively in Europe, Scandinavia and Russia as well as the Nurburgring (Nordschleife) as a test driver.

All of our instructors are hand picked and trained to deliver CATs unique brand of training - we do not pick from a large pool of instructors. The quality and consistency of our delivery combined with the consistent high scores from feedback could not be achieved if we did. Each instructor brings specialist skills and qualifications to match the services we provide. As importantly they are warm, engaging personalities dedicated to your driving development.

About Millbrook – our main base for training activities

Centrally located in Bedfordshire Millbrook Proving Ground is about 5 miles from junction 13 of the M1. It is one of Europe's leading locations for the development and demonstration of every type of land vehicle. The consequence of this custom-built facility means you have the perfect arena to develop your driving knowledge and technique.

The purpose built circuits allow us to break down your natural driving style into the core components used everyday and on track. Braking, Cornering, Low and High Speed driving as well as Observation and limit handling are all explored in a variety of scenarios that are difficult to find anywhere else in one place.

The art of driving is dissected into manageable bite size learning chunks, building your mental toolbox and making your new found techniques systematic. The skills you develop will be taken into your road driving for your safety and apply for track enthusiasts at any circuit.

A training session with CAT will always start with the core areas of braking and observation. No matter what level of experience you arrive with, these key aspects to your driving will be explored. Depending on your objectives and itinerary you could find yourself on the Mile Straight for 15 minutes or up to 90 minutes working through the many braking techniques: Threshold; High G; ABS; Linear; Pedal Exit; Heel & Toe; and Left Foot Braking.

Time on the High Speed Circuit looking at high speed driving and observation follows, before moving onto exploring the many and varied cornering techniques that can be used. The combination of the Handling Circuit and Alpine Loops provides practically every type of corner you will drive through. Exploration of real time understeer and oversteer completes the standard itinerary for our clients on their first visit to us. The combination of your learning experience with CAT and the Millbrook facility makes a powerful duo, which truly accelerates your learning curve.
