ingenie drivers head to Silverstone for some pro coaching

skid cars at Silverstone

It was big, it was exciting and it was packed full of ingenie smiles. Yes, we're talking about our first EVER Driver Development Day.

Over 50 ingenie drivers and their families kindly gave up their Saturday to come and trial the course at Silverstone, and it's safe to say they weren't disappointed.

The course was designed to give our drivers the opportunity to face dangerous driving situations that they wouldn't have been taught how to deal with in their driving lessons. Skid avoidance, spins, emergency braking at high-speed, ABS recognition - you name it, they got to experience it.

And the best bit - being coached by Silverstone's very own pro drivers.

So what did our drivers think?

Not forgetting our competition winners

I think that means they enjoyed it!

An enormous thank you

We were so thrilled with the feedback from the day and impressed with ALL our drivers eagerness to learn new skills. The overall aim of the day was safety, and although experiencing skids and spins might be a weeeeeeny bit fun on a purpose-built training ground in specially adapted cars - it's not so much fun on your own on a major road.

As trials go, it was a big success, (even if we do say so ourselves) but of course we won't be stopping there. We've taken on board all of your comments and it will really help us develop the course and make what we offer at ingenie the best it can be.

And we got to meet you guys! What more could we ask for.
