been reading some of the posts about track and driver training with interest, and it strikes me that what i'd really like is an environment where i can learn to drive my car at its limits, and learn where those limits are. with limited/no danger of trashing the car. and pretty much one to one tuition. preferably in the south east.

does anyone have any recommendations/advice on where to look?

Gary, thanks for that link. I've been trawling the web for something like this.

The advanced driver training day sounds great.

Anyone done it?

spoke to a few of them - car limits and ben elliott in particular very helpful; ben elliott seems to offer what i want in my area; anyone had any experience with him?

Hi, Not sure if the recent training I went on would be of interest.

60% of the day was spent on public roads, the rest skid pan, abs, handling demo and a few other bits, short burst on a race track all 1-1 tuition.

Not really track focused or car at its limits - but I suspect car on or at its limits is way beyond where most of us drive 99% of the time.

See the details in my earlier post

All I can say is I came away feeling much more comfortable with the car - and knowing what it and I can do safely.
