As a complete novice (with the exception of the excellent High Weald experience) a nervous Weaver and his aged MGB arrived in the dark at Brands Hatch. Immediately greeted by friendly smiles and help, the car and I were soon settled in Pit Garage 15. Martin and Stuart - by chance my experienced garage colleagues - offered encouragement and kind words. Signing on was straight forward and the noise test well organised. The briefing revived the nerves which where settled again by Stuart and very soon I rolled down the Pit Lane in reasonable shape to meet my tutor. Another short briefing and we were off! As a local I have stood on the corner of Paddock Hill bend for years and watched countless experts fall off it. Now I was driving it! Superb. Three sessions later and the lunch time class room session helped make a lot more sense of all the information I was trying to put into some sort of order in my brain. The afternoon sessions with my tutor honed my skills sufficiently well for him to encourage a little more speed and to talk about improvements I might make to the car....Bring On Goodwood! Firstly a big thank you to the MGOT team. What an experience. Secondly thank you my fellow drivers. Those experienced and helpful pit garage colleagues and those novices who like me who on the track respected each others space and shared the thrills. A magic day. Thank you.
