BEFORE THE DAY

You may find it useful to watch Andrew Walsh's Car Limits DVD which explains and demonstrates many driving techniques from the basics of steering through to left foot braking spin control, and uses both front and rear wheel drive cars. It is professionally filmed and edited with 3d graphical illustrations of things such as slip angles and traction circles, has various viewing angles, optional commentary and easy navigation. The DVD will give you an overview of some of the techniques you'll learn on your training day and allow you to understand the theory so things are little easier for you on the day.

Blyton Park is approximately five miles North of Gainsborough in Lincolnshire.

The venue is one mile from Blyton village on the B1205 (Kirton Road) and approaching from Blyton the entrance is a mile from the village on the left hand side. There are big signs on both sides of two heavy steel gates and a derelict wartime brick shed next to the entrance. You will also notice the flag poles. Go through the gates and follow the track past the grasstrack on your left. Keep going past a derelict farm and park by the big green barn on your right.
Please drive slowly and carefully and please do not go any further into the site than the green barn. Best Routes (we think!):

Stay on A620 and join A631 outside Gainsborough
