I attended a Total Car Control Dynamic Handling Masterclass in February and what a day! I wanted to gain confidence based on skill and understanding to enjoy my BMW 335i M Sport to the full, and am so glad I chose TCC.
Millbrook is a fantastic venue and Ivan was very professional and clear in his coaching, with a lot of patience. I will not list his credentials as it is not my place, but let’s say I was in very safe and experienced hands. This certainly helped me to relax and we were able to modify basics such as my driving position and then explore best use of gears, depth of braking, driving line and driving observation amongst other things. When we removed traction control and put the car into controlled oversteer, I haven’t had so much fun in a long time, beaming from ear to ear. At intervals Ivan also took to the wheel to gently demonstrate key techniques which was very useful and increased my confidence in the car to a new level and set a level to aspire to.
By the end of the day I was pushing as far as my newby brain would allow and driving a lot more smoothly and therefore quickly. Also incorporated was some awareness training and exploring stopping distances and stability. So, a mix of info and a large dollop of fun, plus a nod to the serious stuff made for a very well balanced day.
I am very pleased that I took this decision and, with techniques to polish and then build upon, I am confident that my driving control has improved and I can now do the car more justice. I never realised how far you can push a BMW 335i and shall definitely return for further instruction, whether it be in this car or the next. Thanks again Ivan for a high level of instruction and a lot of fun.
