What to expect from the Skid Pan Experience

In a safe and controlled environment, we will help you develop the skills needed to correct and control a sliding car, a situation that you may encounter on the public roads. Not only is this great fun, but more importantly a hugely worthwhile investment in your own and your passengers' safety.

Unlike many venues, we use modern front and rear-wheel drive cars so that you will understand and feel how the electronic safety systems, fitted as standard to most cars, will help in adverse conditions, but also how to control a sliding car when all the systems are switched off relying on pure driver skill. We feel this will give you the best preparation for anything the roads and weather may throw at you!

  • This skid pan experience is a one-hour session on the skid pan driving both the MINI Cooper and Toyota GT86.

  • Your experience starts with a short instructor led briefing. The rest of the session is spent in the car. Ensuring everyone is a driver and passenger in both cars across the session.

  • Your skid pan instructor will be outside giving detailed advice, instruction and encouragement via a two-way radio.

  • Each session will run with up to four participants, two in each car as driver and passenger.

  • Driver and passenger will swap places half way through the session in each car.

  • After both have driven one car, they will swap into the other car.

  • At the end of the session all participants would have had equal time as a driver and passenger in the MINI Cooper and Toyota GT86.

Driving Content

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

  • Prolonged control of under and oversteer on 45m diameter circle.

  • Exercises will be experienced with all electronic stability systems switched on for first run.
