Anyone know of anywhere that will do car specific advanced driving lessons?
Im going to be very honest here. In comparison to my previous cars the 172 scares me a bit at speed. Im not quite sure when she will let go of the road, Im not chucking it about like I used to with the CRXs Ive had. Its not that the car doesnt feel capable but Im not used to something with such a hard suspension. For example I was zipping along nicely with a Merc 320E on the motorway, I was matching it and gaining but at 115 I was getting twitchy, the car hits a bump and the feedback can be a bit disconcerting so I tend to back off.
Also Im not yet too sure how much I can ask from the car on tight corners at speed. I suspect that this is because the 172 is deceptively fast and my approach is probably faster than it would have been in the CRX, will the 172 just do whatever is asked of it? Or am I right to be wary?
I love this car and I really enjoy the straight line kick in the back speed but after two weeks I am usually pushing a car to its limits in the twistys but I am yet to master the 172.
Do I get some track experience where I can really see what the car can do, or am I just getting old and am now ready for a Nissan Micra or god forbid a Yaris!?
