CAT@CAT Posted April 28, 2017 Share Posted April 28, 2017 Performance Driver Track Day An action-packed day run by CAT Driver Training Ltd at Millbrook Proving Ground. The day is a fast-moving experience for 6 owners and their cars to introduce the secrets of performance driving. It is designed to be informative, exciting and fun. The group size is purposefully kept small so that the maximum can be obtained from the day in a highly-personalised environment. 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 a 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. Though this is 'Track Day' in name the skills learned and developed during the session will stand you in good stead on the road as well. Drivers looking to improve their all round ability will benefit as much as those want to shave tenths/seconds off lap times. Included in the day are: - Professional in car tuition - Access to 5 unique circuits at Millbrook Proving Ground - Lunch and refreshments during the day - Timed end of day shoot out - Full emergency services on hand all day - 1 hour 40 minutes driving time with your personal instructor Performance Driver 'Track' Day Schedule 08:30-09:15 Coffee, Introduction, Licence Check, Scrutineering, Safety Briefing & Objectives of the Day 09:30-09:35 Drive to Circuits 09:30-11:00 Mile Straight 11:00-11:50 High Speed Circuit 11:50-13:15 Handling Circuit 13:15-14:00 Lunch 14:00-15:00 Alpine Route 15:00-15:45 Understeer/Oversteer 15:45-16:45 Gymkhana timed Shoot Out on the Steering Pad/Mile Straight Apron 16:55 Presentation & Debrief Any Questions End Timings & Circuit order may be subject to change on the day depending on circuit activity.
