Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

  • 4 hour skid pan driving experience in a Toyota 86 Sportscar (shared usage of the car)
  • Professional instruction
  • All safety equipment

A skid pan is an artificially slippery track which replicates driving on snow/ice or hitting a patch of oil. The driving speeds are less than 50km/h and the track is so slippery, the fun factor is extreme as you attempt to control your car with little or no traction. During the 4 hour session you will learn through experience how to recognise and control skids. This is a unique experience which not only enhances driving skills, but makes participants aware of their limitations and human reactions to adverse situations. During the session you will learn the importance of driving vision, steering & posture, skid & slide recognition (understeer, oversteer, spins) skid prevention techniques and skid control (reactive throttle control, steering correction, balance points).
