Learn about skid avoidance and recovery with a Knockhill driving experience
Use techniques that simulate loss of car control
The thrill of driving on ice and aquaplaning
Held in the complete safety of this Scottish circuit
Controlling a skid can be an incredibly useful skill if it avoids major accidents and saves lives. Experience the merits of skid control at the Knockhill circuit. This driving day teaches you about the loss of control of your vehicle, complete with the experience of driving on ice and aquaplaning on overly wet road surfaces. The experts at Knockhill create skid pans on a non-toxic chemical surface over the tarmac to simulate these effects. As well as having adrenaline-fuelled fun, your driving confidence is likely to be significantly enhanced as a result of your visit to Knockhill.
