CAT Driver Training

Cornering Masterclass - 9th October @ CAT


Recommended Posts

After an extremely succesful trip to CAT Driver Training, I thought I would start a post to see who else may be interested in attending an event like this. If there are sufficient numbers, I will start discussing with Jo at CAT to see what date are available (it would likely be September/October).

Please note that these events are for MEMBERS ONLY as CAT discount the prices for our club. So if you are a non-member and are interested, please PM Chilli Red (Club Secretary) to find out how to become a member. I would add that the benefits of membership go way beyond this one event of course.

If you'd like to know a little more about what the day would involve, the thread with our recent feedback/pics is here and the overvew of the day from CAT is below:

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 high speed 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 your car through its paces on the open spaces of the Steering Pad/Mile Straight Apron

An instructor will accompany you on all the circuits, 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.

If you want more info or details of potential cost, feel free to PM me but please post up if you are interested.

Neil, which course are you looking at booking this time, as this will impact who is likely to attend. 

I will be interested depending on the Course you're looking at

exactly my thoughts - I wonder if Colin/Paul/Jo could let us know what the 'next stage' course might be for a group that have already attended Performance Driver 'Track' Day training?

The fact that we all want to go back for more, should serve as an indicator to all that haven't yet been, how good a day it is.

Unless there is an even spread and the groups split.

This would be my thinking. Happy to look at organising 2 different events. The first, for those that want to attend the day we just did and the second, for a follow up to the performance day (I recall Colin mentioning Cornering Masterclass as one I think).

If you're interested in either attending the Performance Day or a follow up, just post up and I'll collate in the original thread.

very interested in the second, just need to understand the content...

likely I could be persuaded for the first, if spaces needed filling.

I did the Cornering Masterclass - just looking for what I posted about 4 or so years ago. Epic.

It rained almost all day; we got soaked; there was no need to wet the skid pan; I got a hat for being "most improved" (read - I was rubbish at the start); brilliant day, and as big a learning curve as the intro course which has just happened.

I seem to remember, as I was Events guy at the time, that CAT were prepared to allow Club members to do this course even if they had not done the Performance Driver one, but we would have to check.

I did the performance day and the cornering masterclass  probably 6-7 years ago and would be interested in doing it all again.

I remember them being informative and building confidence around your ability.

Either would be fine, I still think I can learn more from another performance day but it depends on availability 👍
