Although the circuit are providing 3 trained ARDS instructors, we've got more folk in the Novice category.

If any more experienced track drivers would be willing to babysit the novices for their first time out, please sign up below.

You don't have to know the cirucit, it's more to familiarise folk with racing lines, braking/gear change techniques etc.

Nope, but neither is hitting the armco on your 3rd lap. Fortunately there's not much Armco at Anglesey, only a tyrewall, just lots of runoff's.

No, but there is no dishonour in having an instructor with you for a couple of laps - you might be safer for other trackusers, too


In fact, I plan to make use of the instructors again this year. Why not ...it is all included in the price so it would be silly not to

I'm no expert either but it's amazing what you can pick up from someone who's done it before. Even just for peace of mind.

And from your previous showing, Ross, I think you'll be fine

However, it's always a worthwhile experience to take advantaqe of free professional instruction - these guys instruct racing drivers. I'll be booking some instruction again this year.

There's always something that you've been doing wrong at one corner or another that will save you a heap of time on the lap.

The instructors know their circuit intimately . Use them.

Nick.

PS. I'll be happy to sit alongside anyone who'll have me.
