Yes this is a copy of my post in 2006 not sure about the passenger but you could ask I'm sure it would be ok for some of the time, format may be different to 2006...

1 to 1 session lasts 1 hour, Track Tuition lasts 3 hours.
I did the 1 to 1 last year in between our Track Tuition and Track Night, was a family gift and it gave my confidence a boost, but Track Tuition was much more beneficial to me as a novice and guess what...that's what its aimed at.

Here is the format for the Novice Track School

13.00 Arrival and registration
13.30 Safety briefing and all the ins and outs of track day etiquette
14.00 Tour of Knockhill in MG ZS's with ARDS Instructors showing you all the lines and giving you all the tips you need to know

14.30 Take your car on track and follow your instructor as the pace slowly builds
15.15 30min open track session
15.45 Cars out of pit lane and all drivers back to briefing room for final de-brief and any questions.
16.00 finish


For anyone thinking about this, I can't stress enough how rewarding and enjoyable last years event was, I think I enjoyed the 30 minute open track session more than I did the 3 subsequent track events, probably because there were only the course participants on the track. There may be some who would just like to do the the Track Tuition and not go on to take part in Track nights, well that's ok... I'm sure you will enjoy it just the same and go home with a big grin on your face. like the rest of us did.

Hmmm - the novice thing sounds good before launching into the full experience - does anyone have any suggestions on where to get track day insurance before Saturday?

Insurance

Postby c10sul » Tue Feb 12, 2008 4:33 pm

Aaah, insurance, something else I didn't know about, is this something we have to do or doesn't knochill cover us? Anyone know?

Knockhill certainly doesn't cover you. A quick Google search should turn up a few contenders. There's usually a hefty excess payable on every claim, so if your car isn't in the first flush of youth, you may want to think about it...
AON do trackday cover with the club's insurance scheme, if you have that.
