PURSUIT & RAPID-RESPONSE DRIVING SKILLS

PURSUIT AND RAPID RESPONSE

The training objective is to develop high speed driving and advanced techniques to quickly close to a target in order to conduct surveillance or to respond rapidly to provide mutual support to a friendly team / asset with additional firepower, medical evacuation or surveillance capacity. 

  • Thrill-seeking petrol heads who want to enjoy the most exhilarating and exciting day out available anywhere
  • Professionals in the security or stunt industries and military or police personnel who wish to enhance their skill-set

Rear Wheel Drive medium-large sized saloon cars with manual transmission are used to develop car control on a sealed surface. Vehicle dynamics (weight transfer and grip) will be explored to extract the maximum performance from each vehicle.

ADVANCED PURSUIT DRIVING

This course is the next step after the successful completion of the Pursuit 1 course. Advanced Pursuit Driving techniques will build on the fundamentals developed during Pursuit 1. As before, the programme training objectives are to use ordinary RWD cars on a loose surface, together with plain clothes/surveillance kit for under-cover operations. Having revised and consolidated the fundamental skills taught in Pursuit 1, highspeed RWD cornering skills form the majority of the Pursuit 2 programme. An extremely intense high-pressure final exercise will pressure-test every manoeuvre and technique taught in Pursuit 1 & Pursuit 2 in an immersive, realistic scenario.
