The venue we use most often is the picturesque Anglesey Circuit in North Wales where we will help you develop your track driving skills to a very high level. We can organize something similar at Pau Arnos, the delightful French circuit down in the South West of France near the city of Pau (see separate page).
At either venue, we will build upon the basic ingredients, which are:
The ultimate goal of this course is for you to enjoy more of your car’s capability while on the track. You will gain greater control via a better understanding of the interaction between car and circuit. We will at the same time teach you to pick and optimise your lines.
We help you develop your technique and minimise your mistakes by honing your mental approach.
The idea is not just to learn the best way along a truly beautiful piece of road but to develop a process which can be applied to any circuit in the world. Think of it as a set of analytical tools which you will assemble and take home with you.
You will at the same time develop strategies that enable you to measure your success as you go along. These include:
We are very happy to be involved with the Anglesey Performance Driving Centre which oversees all instruction at Anglesey. It is essential that we have exclusive access to the track in order to focus on the tasks in hand rather than worrying about other cars and the speed differential which is always a problem at a busy track day. Anglesey and its Performance Driving Centre allows us that freedom.
Situated on the picturesque southern coast of the Welsh island the track has recently been extended and redesigned to make one of the most challenging and interesting tracks in Europe, together with the safety that is necessary for FIA approvals. It also offers a stunning backdrop; on one side lies the Irish sea. On the other is the sometime snow-capped mountain of Snowdon. Nearby are the sandy beaches which have been a holiday destination for the well to do for more than a century. The picturesque town of Beaumaris and its selection of top class restaurants is just a few miles away in the straits of Menai.
Anglesey is a fair distance from London, but it’s an easy run up the M6, then you turn left along the A55. It’s a drive well worth the effort. We - and you - have a unique working environment all to ourselves.
The two day course is now £1995 including VAT. For more details, see www.donpalmer.co.uk. To book, contact Mark on 01379 897200 or Don on 07769 911 911.
