    We ask clients to wear crash helmets on club days as a blanket safety measure to keep everybody safe. If you do not wish to wear one or feel you cannot fit comfortably in your car operating the controls safely, we are happy to train with you. The only restriction if you are not wearing a helmet is that your speed is capped at 130mph on the High Speed Circuit (Bowl) as this is the Millbrook regulation. If you attend further training after this introductory event and higher speeds are required to further your technique and knowledge we would have to reconsider the risks - using a CAT vehicle for that element would be an option. Our days are structured to ensure you are kept safe along with the instructor sitting alongside you. We adhere closely to the Health and Safety measures put in place by Millbrook. Millbrook Proving Ground is governed by the Health & Safety Executive and follows a stringent policy. As an approved user of Millbrook we are duty bound to follow their safety protocol. I also have my own personal views on safety. Looking into accident investigations of incidents on racing circuits you will find that unless you are wearing a Hans Device personal injury can be increased due to the weight of a helmet. We look forward to seeing you all on the day. Colin

    You will definitely hear what they're saying as that is critical for the training ... we don't like interesting moments Our helmets are all open face to aid communication but we work with people in full face as well. We do have intercom equipment (Autocom) but that is primarily used for our work with permanently roofless cars i.e. Atoms, 2Elevens etc. On the day if anyone has any difficulty with communication then we can switch to the Autocom system and provide temporary equipment on the day. In our experience there is only one circuit at Millbrook where hearing can be more difficult in a fixed roof car - the High Speed Circuit. Colin and Nick are programmed to talk louder here As an aside we heard a story where the driver thought the instructor was saying 'Great Great Great' .... problems ensued as he was really saying 'Brake Brake Brake'.

    Hippo - if you have your own helmet then please bring it, otherwise we have a large selection of every size for you to use ... with or without the fashion accessory hair net B) Simon - I'm sure that fuel economy will be worked on Jo

  19. The standard courses have set prices - it only becomes bespoke if you want to tweak with the duration or format. Our website has all the courses with a more detailed overview of what is included and relevant pricing but for ease here is a brief overview. Apologies that the formatting has been lost from my Word document : Standard One on One Course Options Many of the skills you employ to drive safely on the road run in parallel with driving at speed on a circuit: looking ahead; planning & awareness; safe cornering techniques; driving with mechanical sympathy; & keeping the vehicle stable & balanced in all driving scenarios. Calm clear instruction is enthusiastically given to support & encourage your confidence. As a result of the skills learnt, practiced, developed & understood, you will come away from your time with your instructor having experienced an exciting & rewarding day.
