Event starting 14 Apr 2012 for 2 days
Reply with quote

Further to a thread that I started on the 996 & 997 forums here is confirmation of the details received from CAT Driver Training.

Basically there are two potential dates available, either the Saturday 14th April or Sunday 15th April 2012. Given the numbers who have already said they are interested in doing this event there is the potential that both of these dates will be used. There is a maximum of 6 drivers per day, so a potential 12 in total.

Full details of what is provided at the event can be found at ;

http://www.catdrivertraining.co.uk/index.php/cat-driver-training-courses/groups-a-corporate/car-clubs-a-forums.html

A summary is as follows ;

An action-packed day run by CAT Driver Training Ltd at Millbrook Proving Ground.

CAT Driver Training 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 wide open spaces of the ‘Steering Pad/Mile Straight Apron’
An instructor will accompany you on all the circuits during your session, 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 Subaru Impreza or a Caterham 7).

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

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 – 10:20 Mile Straight
10:20 – 11:30 High Speed Circuit
11:30 – 12:45 Handling Circuit
12:45 – 13:30 Lunch
13:30 – 14:40 Alpine Route
14:40 – 15:10 Understeer/Oversteer
15:10 – 15:50 Gymkhana timed ‘Shoot Out’ – Steering Pad/Mile Straight Apron
16:00 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 costs are as follows ;

3 participating members = £425 pp
4 participating members = £399 pp
6 participating members = £370 pp

All prices include VAT at the current rate and payment must be made at the point of booking to confirm individuals places. Depending on the time frame for the event, this could be a 50% deposit with the balance closer to the event, or the full amount if within 40 days. Methods can be bank transfer or debit and credit cards but credit cards attract merchant fees of up to 3% of the value.

So I will start the list ;

Would totally love to be at the event, but shall be stuck at work on Saturday. Attending on Sunday is my only option, but all the slots have been taken. So, should someone pull-out of their Sunday slot, please give me first refusal! Thanks.
P.S. Before somebody flames me, yes I know that I have left an identical post on the parallel thread on the 997-subforum.

Whether it was the correct way I followed the Link to CAT, rang them and paid over the phone.

Thanks for everyone who has already signed up.. and hat's off to Steve who was the first to pay..

For those already on the list payment can be made by phoning Jo @ CAT directly on 01234 757 633. Once paid if you could change the status on the list that would be great.

Also I have had one PM for places to stay. CAT have a list of hotels etc on the website and it can be found at ;

http://www.catdrivertraining.co.uk/index.php/how-to-book/cat-recommends/where-to-stay.html

Any problems or questions either post or PM me.

Chris
