MG Driver Training Days

Driver training days are run under CAMS or AASA permits on an approved circuits. Club officials control the event, in which you drive your car singly, or in small groups at relatively low speeds. The goal is to focus on correct lines, braking distances, smooth cornering and car control.

These are designed to be learning experiences for improvement in car control in each run. Driver groups are organised according to experience and speed.

Driver training days are non-competitive and there is no timing. Basic life insurance is part of the track licence or CAMS licence. Historic cars older than 40 years only can be covered by some track insurance – refer to Shannon’s Insurance.

The risk of collision and damage is generally minimal (less risk than the highway!). Vehicles may have insurance cover under personal policies only – please double-check your policy.
