Availability- Training dates for Road or Track

 

 

We facilitate the highest level of development of  driving skills

Currently available training dates: We have our track-based Skill-drill days 22 Aug and 17 Sept. 22nd 1 space. 1 Nov now available.

 

Road training can be conducted across most locations in the UK by arrangement, but most performance road training takes place in North Wales.

 

Anti-hijack starter days are flexible but normally based in NW, group track-based courses operate out of our Lincolnshire circuit. Track and  high level road skills development is at Ginetta's test-track facility in Lincolnshire, where we have exclusive track use. We run closed training skill-drills here throughout the year, with a maximum of eight cars, normally we run 6. Bespoke training courses - contact for further details. Further training is done on all UK circuits.

  

Note:  First time training is a road session or via our skill-drill days, which also provide a route into our drivers club, if appropriate. Once you have completed these two days you can then develop your track skills further on subsequent training days or on track - and use further road work to enhance this development.

If you want to learn to track drive firstly we take you on road and/or skills days...... and then we can visit one of the tracks below.

For a first time on a trackday: Bedford Autodrome. Ideal circuit to get to understand how trackdays work - and it works really well wet or dry. Pretty benign so doesn't punish you when you get it wrong, rather than somewhere like Oulton Park or Brands, where you NEED to get it right. We have available dates at this circuit.

Anglesey (Ty Croes). Again great wet or dry. Brings in some elevation changes and a degree of camber. A real little jewel in North Wales. Fantastic in the wet.

Snetterton. I really do like the 300 circuit at Snett. Has a bit of everything. Learn where to turn in later than the rest -  and also early, interestingly, on a couple of corners. Learn which line to use when chasing and which when aiming for a settled lap. Pretty flat, apart from Bombhole, but a great, great challenge.

Donington Park offers elevation, camber, with the challenge of one corner feeding into another, esses and, of course, Craner curves, which has the Eau Rouge factor. One of the very best circuits in the UK.

Silverstone - a wide track, challenges the eyes to find the lines in a way that narrower circuits never really do. Fantastic, requires respect in the wet, especially in quick rear drive cars. Has to be driven at some stage in your driving career.

Oulton Park - highly technical, resembles a fast road in contrast to Silverstone. Commands respect but fantastic. Although people call Cadwell Park a mini Nurburgring I really believe that Oulton bears more comparison. Virtually always claims a car on every trackday.

Cadwell Park: The "mini-ring" circuit has slow and tight, fast sweepers, vertical challenges, down-hill braking entry turns. All sorts. A narrow circuit, testing in the wet, fast in the dry.

Rockingham: Oval banking, tight infield, various circuit layouts and a couple of really interesting corners. A challenge in slow and fast cars alike. I like this circuit. A lot! SADLY NO LONGER WITH US!

Castle Combe- The circuit's claim to fame is that Quarry holds the "honour" of being the most dangerous circuit corner in the UK. Perhaps Oulton would argue that Druids is it's equal! This circuit has some great sections but, again, so very easy to get it wrong. The circuit really does teach you that early turn-ins are really not a good idea. Quite a LOT of cars come to a sticky end here on sections that look really quite innocuous, especially on busy "jap-fest-type" days. Not many noisy days available.

Brands Hatch - it's rare to get a chance to drive the full circuit on trackdays- and costly. The Indy layout is short but has Paddock Hill Bend to test one's mettle. Tricky in the wet but, again, but a circuit that has to be driven.

Thruxton - not really a straight in sight, this circuit is a challengingly fast track. Great in something like an M3, with slow technical entry into the chicane, mixed with a couple of really good flowing faster corners. Noise can be an issue here so check the noise limits beforehand.

Millbrook - A manufacturer's test track. There are various test sections on the Millbrook circuit which are available for training, including the high speed bowl where speeds of up to 160mph can be experienced, as well as an alpine road section and brake testing etc. We are permit holders to train on this site. Note it is a secure site where use of camera phones etc. is prohibited.

Blyton Park - a shorter sprint track but very testing and a popular venue for club sprints as well as testing by Ginetta, various race teams and Drivertuition! We have a good relationship with the circuit and book the circuit for both private and exclusive use. By arrangement. This is a great set-up track and a popular venue with our clients and race teams alike.

 

We can offer you Blyton for private group days if required.. Other options may be available and European Circuits may also be booked.
