01 MARCH 2015 - 30 NOVEMBER 2015

The Performance Driving Course takes place at Millbrook Proving Ground, UK. The proving ground provides the perfect location for our drivers to learn and develop their driving skills in a challenging yet safe environment.

During the day, the blend of theory and hands-on practice will allow you to drive in a number of different environments, where you will experience safe high speed driving, car dynamics on handling and hill routes, and straight line power delivery and braking on the straights.

All of our courses are designed to be one-to-one in nature. Our highly experienced, professional instructors have extensive knowledge of track and road driving and will be with you throughout the duration of the day.
