What to expect from the Junior Skid Pan Experience

For junior drivers over 12 years old who have some driving experience but do not hold a full driving licence.

A one-hour session on the skid pan driving both the MINI Cooper and Toyota GT86. Both cars have dual controls.

Each session will run with two participants, the pupil, when driving, is always accompanied by the instructor. Each session will start with a short instructor demonstration.

The pupil will then drive the front wheel drive Mini cooper & the rear wheel drive Toyota GT86. At the end of the session all participants would have had equal time as a driver in the MINI Cooper and Toyota GT86.

Driving Content

Straight line slalom, weight transfer and direction change, controlling understeer and oversteer.

Exercises will be experienced with all electronic stability systems, traction control and ABS switched on, while the pupil gains confidence and control. Gaining an understanding of what the systems do.

Electronic stability systems, Traction control & ABS switched off increasing the difficulty and making the pupil work much harder.

We also offer a Junior driving experience for children without any driving experience: Junior Driving Experience
