Sand Driving Training - Stockton
Some of you may have noticed in the sand failure thread that a sand driving training day was suggested.

I have made some enquiries with a company I did a training day with a few years ago at Stockton Beach - Getabout Training Services.

Getabout are willing to run a dedicated day just for us provided we can get 5 - 6 cars. They would organise for whatever day suits us with a discount of $50, this would make the cost $225 per vehicle. The $50 discount will pay for your fuel.

As I said, I did the day a few years ago with my son and it was a fun, family friendly and relaxed day, but you will learn some new skills and go up and down some big dunes. While I have done a fair bit of beach driving now, I'm still keen to go again.


What I need to get this organised is to confirm a FIRM day that will suit the majority of people. As a start I suggest the following days over the next couple of months (all Saturdays) :


Once I have an indication of numbers and preferred date, I'll go back to Getabout and confirm details. You will then need to book direct with them under a reference I'll give you later.

I guess they would take 8 or so in the group, but the smaller the group the better day you will have - so first in best dressed. If there is significant numbers showing interest maybe I'll have to draw a line in the um...sand.

Remember, I'm not getting anything out of this so no grief please.

Otherwise, I look forward to meeting you and having a fun day out.

I'll leave this up for a week or so - so who is interested?

Interested, but timing not great. Will see if I can reschedule my calendar.

Hmmm. Not much of a response.

I'm wondering if a Sunday would suit people better, and maybe a bit more lead time.

Maybe a Sunday in late August? Would this suit better?

Maybe when the '14's roll in you might get a few extras :D

August would be much better, and a Sunday.
I would be a confirmed starter.
I would have my new caravan by then, and a perfect opportunity to have a weekend away trial.

Where are all these wannabe MY14 owners? You will have your cars by then. Unless you ask Anne Tanner for permission first.

Dunno if I will have my SRT by then. Not sure i'd want to take it on Stockton anyway, last time I went I had to dig my mate out :P

Sunday late August would be good for me.

If we can get one or two more we can see about making a booking.

BobT - are you in for late August??

I will be a starter - surely I can get the patch done by then
