Learn about skid avoidance and recovery in Wiltshire
Use techniques that simulate loss of car control
Enjoy the thrill of driving on ice and aquaplaning in complete safety
Develop your driving skills in poor weather conditions with a skid control driving experience for two. Although the skidpan is incredibly fun to use, the facilities and techniques you will take advantage of here can be invaluable for use on the road. Experience the feeling of driving on ice and aquaplaning using a skid pan in a safe and controlled environment and learn to react in a positive way under training. This experience is both fun and educational.
Weekend dates around twice a month throughout the year. We recommend booking at least four weeks in advance.
You need a full manual driving licence - bring it with you on the day.
Heavy rain can affect the driving surface. Any cancellations are for your own safety. Please call the centre before you leave if in any doubt.
This experience lasts around three hours, including briefing, demonstration, driving time and a debrief. Please arrive a few minutes prior to your start time. For safety reasons if you miss the initial briefing you will not be allowed to take part.
Numbers on the Day
There will be a maximum of 12 people taking part, with up to four people sharing each car.
Spectators are welcome. There are good, heated viewing facilities and refreshments available.
Dress comfortably and wear flat-soled shoes. Wear old shoes if you can, as you might get oil or suds from the skidpan on them.
