You use your own car.
You start with a classroom session, then onto the track following the instructor with a radio in each car. He'll stop at various corners and show you the lines, etc. Then back to the classroom for another short while, then back to the track with the radios for a few laps. Then another chat, then a few laps to go around at your own pace.
That's what I did anyway. It's a great introduction and great value for the track time you get. Should give good confidence for when you do a full trackday.

Erin,
If its a track training day the format is this:

Class->walk couple of corners on the track -> slow laps -> faster laps -> class -> fast laps
They provide helmets as it is only training day.

It is really a great day out, the instructors lead u around and show u the lines, you have walkie talkies, and they talk to u and tell u the lines.... 'Turn in at the oak tree etc'
Enjoy

You use your own car.

There's a training day on the morning of the 12th July and a open track in the afternoon if anyone is interested!

€50 for the training and €100 for the afternoon... I'm booked for the afternoon

Great afternoon down in mondello yesterday, it turned into a little mini meet too with got92tubby and Japohara down for a look. I'm looking forward to the day I can have passenger laps in their cars!

My mates had their puma down for its first trackday aswell. My car ran very well as usual except when the battery bracket came loose and contacted the positive terminal cutting the power to the car, but it was an easy fix thankfully.

Here's a vid following the puma which goes off at dunlop and then my car cuts out at the first corner...with got92tubby on board!


Another here trying to keep with an Evo and a spin....as soon as got92tubby mentions time!

Had a great time thanks for the spin brian. Sorry for mentioning times but your puma friends had give me strict instructions to push you on.

kcd it was great just sorry i didnt get there much earlier feckin work alwasys getting in the way of fun. Goverment have this country ruimed the work fun ratio is really gone the wrong direction .

Also kc to darren for getting the whole family involved

The app is called Track Addict Pro, it's €5.99.
The heat was killing my iPhone yesterday so it was only picking up a few laps each session.
