Thank you so much for the 2 days I spent with you, as you know I enjoyed them immensely and hope to get another great day with you in a few months’ time. I enjoyed our day at Millbrook where we explored the Jag XFRS’s handling, especially on the reduced grip surface. It was that there that I turned Traction Control fully off for the first time (although I had played with the TRAC DSC setting a bit) and – under your instruction – found it not as scary as I’d been led to believe. It was very useful being able to use the cars’ ABS to the max in a safe environment on the Mile Straight – those plastic mini-cones don’t know what a lucky escape they had!
As much as I enjoyed Millbrook, I felt more at home on the roads of the second day. That said, what an amazing place Millbrook is and I’m glad that I experienced it in my own car – as you may remember, I had been there twice before on Jaguar’s F-Type marketing days which were certainly a lot “tamer” – I picked up from you a lot of useful information about what the car is trying to communicate to me – although I still contend that given what I paid for the beast, it should do what I want, when I want it!
Your choice of roads for the second day was inspired, as I said at the time I can’t believe such roads still exist. I put into practice the lessons of the previous day and believe my driving is now smoother and more ‘considered’ – if that’s the right word. Ivan, I could go on for ever about how much I enjoyed my time with you, it truly was a “Total Control Masterclass” conducted by a genuine Master of his craft. I’m looking forward to booking more with you in the not too distant future. As others have commented, your course is the best value-for-money improvement anyone can make to their car.
