Mondello Car Track Day Training - Monday Mar 14th

Car Track Day Training is a new service at Mondello Park which aims to make track driving more accessible by educating drivers about track day driving and helping them overcome their fears of the track. The first day was run in January and proved very successful as can be seen from the customer feedback shown below. The next date will be an afternoon session on Monday March 14th just before the St. Patrick's day Open Car Track Day.

Car Track Day Training provides new drivers with a low cost opportunity to sample a car track day, without having to take to the track with more experienced drivers. These courses are also useful for drivers who have already completed a track day but wish to brush up on their skills and knowledge before venturing on track again. Participants are given classroom instruction regarding preparation, what to expect, track behaviour, how to get the best from a track day and the differences between road and track driving. Classrooms sessions are mixed with practical on-track instruction driving your own car, and the day is completed by a twenty minute open track day session where you can put your new skills and knowledge to the test in a controlled and supervised environment.

The Track Day Training days are priced at just €50 as their primary purpose is to encourage more drivers to take part in track days at Mondello Park. The course takes three hours to complete and on the March 14th date only an afternoon session will be available. Prospective participants need to be at least eighteen years of age with a full driving license and must have their own car. For normal track days each driver is required to provide their own crash helmet but due to the introductory nature of the training days, Mondello Park will provide these free of charge for the day. Unlike a full Car Track Day passengers are not allowed and race cars of any type will not be permitted.  
What our Customers said about our Track Day Training Course
Our first training course was attended by a mixture of novice and experienced drivers and these are some of the comments we received afterwards.

 "Brilliant day out, excellent value, will recommend to anyone."  

"Great Experience, I would be a lot more comfortable at a full day after this."

 "I've done six or seven track days and would recommend this course to novice and experienced trackdayers. Learned as much in three hours as I did in previous six or seven days". 

 Drivers interested in learning more about car track days can find full details of what is involved on the Mondello Park web site or by calling the Mondello Park office prior to booking in for their introductory session.
