I'd like to repeat pretty much what Jeff said. Both myself and Kim had a great day there. Found it really useful and the handling circuit was really good fun.
Thanks to Neil for organising, and the team at CAT.
Apologies for only just posting up ..... I've been getting the brake dust off the front alloys ..... the pads and rotors have just stopped smoking ...
I would like to offer my sincere thanks to the team at CAT for yet again providing a simply amazing training day on Saturday. The OC was represented by Budbongo and partner, Kim, and myself. The remaining 2 participants were from the Porsche world in 911s. In the course of the day I learnt a lot about the dynamics of rear-engined cars by listening to the sections of the briefings directed their way!
The Performance Driver "Track" Day consists of 5 exercises, or disciplines, and as always the instructors (Paul & Steve) flexed each event to suit each driver's aims. Personally, I wanted to learn how to make my car handle and perform using paddle shift where possible, so this was crafted into each exercise. Brilliant! Thank you, Paul!
We at nissansportz are indebted to all at CAT (Lynne, Paul, Steve and of course Jo and Colin) for offering such superb tuition to the OC at the special Club rates - thank you!
OC members - these courses are fantastic learning days which I commend to you all, irrespective of your previous experience behind the wheel.
With best wishes to all at CAT,
Not quite as consistent as Blobbish.
This could work for me.
Micro meet and breakfast, followed by a tour of G-CIVB (which I wanted to do anyway at some point - two birds, one stone!), then off down to Frome to drop in on relos. Maybe overnight there and drive home Sunday morning.
Edit: Hotel near Frome booked. Looking forward to it.
