Do you think its worth the extra money for the two car day as opposed to the four?

Hi Meister,

 

As Martin R said above, it is pretty much all done in the car. The instructor swaps from car to car to instruct, then you practise. I was close to doing the 'Activity day' first, which is up to 25 cars! , but I decided on the 4 person day. Luckily (for us) one driver had to pull out, so there was only 3 of us. I would still say the 4 person day would be sufficient for the first time. I took some video of the day, so I will try and get it uploaded sometime soon. (I'll put a link here).

As I said before I now have this new perception of steering and feel much more ready to handle a 'scary moment' !!

Go for it asap!!

Cheers

Mark

The first one you do is a lot to take in at one go. I would also do a 4 person day first and maybe a 2 person day once you have done one?

Those that have done this - is there any value whatsoever in having insurance for the day???

TIA

I think the general concensus on this is that it's not really required. I have track day cover, but I don't think this is the same as a track day.

It's a massive airfield - the only thing you might hit is a traffic cone!!

You just need insurance for the way home when trying out your skills!! drive1.gif

Thanks Mark

I did get the impression you were unlikely to hit anything...although for someone like me it's a challenge that I sometimes fulfil!

It's all behind the wheel instruction, with the theory being explained and demonstrated at the same time.

 

I've never done the 2 person day, but I'm sure it would be worth the money. The question is whether you can absorb the information fast enough, or whether you like to have a bit more more of off line time to practice without walshy sat next to you. Or a bit more time to let the adrenaline levels drop a bit.
