High Performance Driving Course Review
Many people spend a lot of time and money on either buying high performance cars or modifying existing ones in their ownership, forgetting about the single biggest improvement, the driver. I am part of the latter and with a 3.5 litre 350bhp+ MR2 with no Traction Control, VSC or driver aids, it can get a little interesting at times.
Doing a Total Car Control Dynamic Handling Masterclass at Millbrook was not only eye-opening, but also very reassuring. On the public roads no good driver should be pushing anywhere near the envelope of grip of their vehicle and even on track there are limitations. Being able to explore the limits of grip in a safe environment with Ivan gave me not only confidence in my own ability but also the car’s ability, and quashed many of my own preconceptions as to the handling of the car. I feel happier and safer behind the wheel on the road or at speed, with much less driver input and better results.
However, any good and well planned class is only as good as the teacher, and this is where Ivan really comes up trumps. He is informative but not long winded, has multiple methods and teaching techniques at his disposal and countless resources. It really is a case of the teacher can make all the difference. A big thank you Ivan for all his hard work and for putting up with me for the day and I can only recommend others his way. Best wishes, and will hopefully see you again soon.
