Anyone Want To Help Organise Some Driving Courses?

Hi Guys,

Im looking at organising a series of advanced driving courses similar to the ones AU1SIXA ran last year. It will be a series of 3 courses run by instructors in a controlled track environment. I will get in touch with Steve and find out all the details about organising them but at this stage im after an initial show of interest. The courses will be spread out over a couple of months so people have enough time to get money organised. Gimme a show of hands if your interested!



Ok, i just had a look at the John Bowe site. Course prices are as follows:

1. Drive-to-Survive $235.00
2. Advanced Driving $266.00
3. High Performance $365.00

You are required to do the Drive-To-Survive course before you can complete either of the other 2 courses. I can contact them and see if i can organise a group discount if we get enough people with an interest. Once we guage how many people are likely to attend i will organise some dates etc. Anyone who want to check out the site for info and more details please visit this siteThe John Bowe Driving Experience


Cheers,
Brad

Depending on when the HiPo course is I'll do it. Missed it last time so I'll be in it this time if possible.

I havn't done any course before. Considering the price I won't put my name down for anything just yet. I am interested though.
