The thrill of driving on ice and aquaplaning but in complete safety
Courses held on an oil-like skid surface or with computerised skid frame
Controlling a skid is a useful skill and this experience teaches you all about it - both as a fun day out and as something you may need to use practically. You'll start with a safety briefing and a discussion on the cause and cures of different kinds of skids. Then you'll use techniques that simulate loss of car control, with the vehicle seeming to get away from you. Skidpan driving focuses on both avoidance and recovery and you'll learn the skills of driving on ice, aquaplaning and skid avoidance exercises with friendly and expert instructors, who'll always keep their head even if you're a bit spooked. Courses are held either on an oil-like surface or using a computerised skid frame. Some courses also include time trials to test your new skills.
