EOI: John Bowe Driver Training Course (SA)

Just wondering who in SA would be interested in the John Bowe driver training course?

Where: Well if there are anough people they would come to us and we'd have the course done out at Mallala raceway.

How Long: I think from memory it will be an 8 hour 'drive to survive' course.

Why the drive to survive course?: We cant go any further in the other courses until we have completed this course first.

How much per person?: 'drive to survive' course per person is $235. I think we get to use our own cars. Those under 21 get charged $211.

After we complete this course we can book in the future the advanced training course and maybe the performance course.

How can I find out more?: Clink on the link http://www.johnbowedriving.com/

So who will be interested as a group to do this course in about 3-4months time?

Excellent Perana, Im gonna start up a list and then get a quote to see if its worth it. Apparantly its more expensive to organise for a weekend so it might be wise to organise the course for a friday or something.

ive done 3 allready. But one more cant hurt, put me down. Insurance companies love seeing youve done a swag of defensive driving courses.

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

Aaron_EF8, i've seen that video of your car doing a nice 'little' drift, and you don't need any lessons in driving!
