Brilliant !!! Best couple of hours I've spent on a Sunday morning for a long time. I'm 63 and been driving bikes and cars since 16. I've spun a few in my time....... usually not intentionately ....... but here the guys explain how to do J-turns (that's driving backwards and flicking the car round and going forwards - James Bond style -, for those like me that don't know the terminology# !, Doughnuts #going round in a tight circle with the tail hanging out and smoking tyres - Clarkson style - but in a cheaper car !# and Handbrake turns. And best of all ............. You get to take the MX5's round a small circuit #not the usual figure 8 type# putting all you've learnt together. All this in a car that's not yours, burning rubber from tyres you don't have to pay for #we destroyed 2# and when you loose it there's no nasty road furniture like lamposts, kerbs and bollards to hurt you ......... only cones and weeds!!. And even my instructor knocked those for 6 on the hot lap !! Our 2 instructors were quite relaxed #vallium??) and we didn't spend ages on technical stuff. It was straight in the cars and go!. Thouroughly reccomended
