Sunday 10th May 2009 Millbrook GTROC/CAT Group Performance Driver "Track" Day

Sunday 10th May 2009

We are pleased to announce that building on the success of the previous CAT Driver Training events the GTROC and CAT Driver Training has jointly developed the official:

GTROC Driver Development Programme for 2009.

Catering for all Skyline and GTR enthusiasts and discounted for GTROC members the training programme centres around the unique facilities available at the Millbrook Proving Ground which include the awe inspiring High Speed Bowl and the famous Alpine Handling Circuit. Millbrook is also the latest venue for the TV Program "Fifth Gear" and a live proving ground for the motor industry. There is no access to the general public or unauthorised photography allowed but group shots will be taken. Exclusive GTROC/CAT car stickers and a signed training logbook will be provided to course attendees.

“Having experienced a one hour demo with CAT Driver Training Instructor Colin Hoad I can tell you this is seriously exciting training on arguably the best facilities in the country. It will massively increase your confidence, car control and awareness skills” Blue34)

A key feature of the 2009 Driver Development Programme are three GTROC group events which form a progressive path building on the knowledge and technique learned at each stage. These group days are in addition to the 1 on 1 driver training programmes also offered by CAT.

The first of the group events and:

Day 1 of the GTROC Driver Development Programme.

Is a group day planned for 10th May 2009 and is the:

GTROC / CAT Performance Driver "Track" Day

The discounted price for GTROC Members is £355 per person and for non-Members £375 per person. Payment will be arranged through the club shop; It's worth noting that the discount on this one event represents almost 50% of the annual GTROC membership fee.

Full event details in CAT's own words.

The day is designed around a maximum group of 8 drivers. Arrival time will be 08:30 with finish time 17:30 hours.

Each course is offered on a first come, first served basis ... post your names early to avoid disappointment

There have been four previous group Driver Training Events at the Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire hosted by our training provider – CAT Driver Training - and were hugely enjoyed by all that participated.

Hi Steve & Mo

Apologies for the silence over the weekend but we were celebrating a certain someone's BIG birthday so took a few days off for partying and then recovery :clap:

Back to normal now though :cool:

So to answer your question ... this day is the Intro day which as you rightly say you did in 2007.

A date for the Cornering Masterclass will be posted this week, which is the next stage in the group development programme. Steve you haven't taken this course but Mo has.

The stage after that is the Drifting Course - which you also did Mo. I think your best next step is for a one to one session (which I think you were previously mooting if I remember correctly). You know you want to look at that wall again :runaway:

Trust this clarifies for you and I look forward to seeing the interest from your fellow Members for this event on the 10th May.

I've never been on track before, not even passenger. Should I have just a little experience or is this an ideal starting point? I really need to learn how to drive properly...

CATD courses are, without a doubt, the best improvement you can make for your car.
Not spoken to anyone who has been anything other than delighted after spending time with Colin and the team.

Thanks to Smigzy for the great suggestion .... so peeps the price is now .............................. :chuckle:

GTR Cook - you should have received a PM from Amanda while I've been away, confirming that a helmet will be needed at times, but we have them for you to use, if you don't have your own.

Lonewolf - do you need us to come and help with the car :thumbsup:
