Drive safely for a Merry Christ­mas

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Front Page -

HRIST­MAS hol­i­days are one of the most danger­ous times on Aus­tralian roads. Many peo­ple die, far more are in­jured, and a huge num­ber suf­fer dur­ing a time that is sup­posed to be about fam­i­lies, friend­ship and to­geth­er­ness.

Which is why, again, is sup­port­ing the Christ­mas Safe Driv­ing Clin­ics run by Mur­cotts Driv­ing Ex­cel­lence.

There is a bonus this year be­cause, as Mur­cotts cel­e­brates its 40th birth­day, the cost of the clin­ics has re­duced to the in­tro­duc­tory price of $99.

Less than $100 buys a sim­i­lar pack­age to the one of­fered in 1975: a one-day ed­u­ca­tional course at Sandown Race­way in the driver’s own car.

‘‘This is a great gift for young driv­ers that keeps on giv­ing,’’ Mur­cotts manag­ing di­rec­tor Ge­off Thomas says.

The cour­ses are run only in De­cem­ber and are sup­ported by Holden and Tyre­power.

Places are lim­ited. Go to mur­ or ph: 1300 555 576.

The suc­cess of the Mur­cotts cour­ses has sparked a sim­i­lar deal from Driver Dy­nam­ics, which will run three spe­cially priced cour­ses at Sandown in De­cem­ber and an­other at Calder Park. Go to www.driver­dy­nam­
