What driver training have you had? What did you learn.

Super excited! I'm off for a days training at Millbrook with CAT Driver training. I would love to hear from other GTR owners who have had driver training. Who was it with? What did you learn? Was it worth it?

CAT are great. Iíve been several times. I donít want to spoil your day out by telling you the plot before youíve seen the movie, but you wonít be disappointed!

CATDT without doubt the best training I've had. Learnt so much in 8 hours - as you are going on it I won't go into all the details as it's part of the experience

Came out with significantly more understanding in how the car will handle on the limit and gave me the confidence to push closer to those limits.

Will definitely use them again this year.

Totally agree - even having a few years of motorsport competition under my belt - the tuition CATD provided gave me even more insight into my driving.

Highly recommended.

CAT at Millbrook. Didn't learn much tbh. Gymkhana with the Caterham was great though, so much that i went straight out and bought one.

A great day at CAT. A huge upgrade to my driving. Learned loads to improve my driving on and off the track. Also started to access the full capabilities of the amazing LM20. I now realise I how much I was holding back and getting wrong, I was only getting half my car! The best bit. The wife is smitten. She went from a nervous "I will never do a track day" to "when are we going, where do I sign" Colin is a fantastic coach and knows his cars and gtr's!
Tldr: if you have never had performance driver coaching get it. I would highly recommend CAT.
