Performance Driver ‘Track’ Day
________________________________________
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
09:30 – 10:55 Mile Straight
10:55 – 11:55 High Speed Circuit
11:55 – 13:15 Handling Circuit
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’ – Steering Pad/Mile Straight Apron
16:45 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 price structure for your club in 2014 will be:

3 participating members = £435 pp
4 participating members = £410 pp
6 participating members = £390 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 3.5% of the value depending on the card type.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to meeting you.

Chaps you should have received your confirmation letters about 10 days to go via email.

I'm capping the day at the 4 of you due to client demand.

Look forward to seeing you in a few weeks time.

Thanks to the team for a very enjoyable day. I think having brakes on the way out helped at Goodwood yesterday to focus on identifying best clipping points and looking further ahead.

Glad the pads held up Ralph and you were able to use Saturday's learning for your Goodwood fun Thumb

Congratulations to you for your Driver of the Day award - trust that cap helped to keep the sun off yesterday when not in car Cool

Chips123 - you're winning time has put you on the leaderboard in joint 9th place thumbsup Hope the champagne was enjoyed over the weekend.

James - shame about the spin on your last run of the Gymkhana - the slidey choc was well earned Grin

los_angelos - really sorry we didn't get to see you on the day and hope you got your battery sorted and made it home safely.

Thank you for your enthusiasm and interest - hope to have the pleasure of seeing you again in the future Smile

Jo
