Why buy from us?
New to the world of track day driving and want to know how to drive safer but faster when out on the circuit? Or maybe you’re an old hand looking to take your driving knowledge to the next level? Our 1 Day Advanced Track Driving Course in a Renault Clio 197 or 200, including an ARDS test, is the complete package to get you fully equipped and qualified for track driving.
The instructors at the school on this unique course are fully ARDS registered and licenced by Motorsport UK (the official motorsport governing body) themselves, as well as being fully insured and well seasoned race car drivers, so you can be assured you’re learning from only the very best A & S grade ARDS instructors.
The new skills that you will learn from them that can be applied to enhance your road driving are an invaluable investment, and they are the only tuition school of their kind in the UK, operating from leading nationally recognised motorsport venues.
They’re also the only school to offer front and rear wheel drive vehicles, assisting with safer driving on both your own cars and company cars, and the training covers all aspects of safe performance driving techniques in a relaxed but fun environment to help build your confidence and get the very best out of your driving potential.
You’ll also get to know and understand how physical forces act upon your vehicle, correct techniques such as seating position, wet and dry lines, weight transfer, understeer and oversteer, making the most of your transmission, and using throttle and braking, and how driver actions affect behaviour behind the wheel to ensure you’re handling and driving your vehicle at its best potential. Any errors that the instructors spot can be identified and actioned quickly, to ensure you feel the difference and improvement in reaction and handling and thus your safety almost immediately.
Your day will also include your ARDS test, which will give you the opportunity to take the exam and become a fully qualified, Motorsport UK race licence holder yourself, making this the most complete and comprehensive track driving instruction course of its kind, that will set you up to becoming a more safer and more confident driver at your next track day.
