I miss the days of spirited driving in my Mk2 Escorts back in the day too. These days I rarely get the chance to enjoy that kind of driving, and the state of the roads (and sometimes other road users), make it even less enjoyable. I have made a few visits to the Palmer Motorsport driving days at Bedford Autodrome, and can highly recommend it for anyone who likes to think they could be an amateur race driver. The choice of cars, instructors, and courses with big/safe run-offs encourages you to find (and occasionally over step) your limits with a big grin on your face. Drifting a Caterham at speed around a track is something i could do all day!
