Lots of fun and potentially lifesaving too! Many drivers first experience the unnerving sensation of a skid out driving on the open road in their own car and don't know what to do!
Everything at Knockhill is built with driving in mind and as an internationally accredited circuit safety is always our number one priority. Let us help you to confidently drive in wet and slippy road conditions including ice and aquaplaning.
We believe everyone should have some knowledge of how to control your vehicle in changing conditions. Whether you have just passed your test or been driving for many years you never know when you may be in a situation when your car will be involved in a skidding situation. The skid control experience allows invaluable time and space to create a real life skidding scenario and learn the correct techniques to recover control.

The skid pan was built in 1997 and since opening has helped our customers regain to their confidence after an accident or simply given them valuable knowledge on how to handle their car if something goes wrong. The skid pan is a safe and enclosed area coated with a special smooth tarmac surface; adding a recirculating water supply creates the 'Slippery' surface allowing a skid to be induced with ease. In 2007 we introduced the Brake and Avoidance Lane allowing further development of a vital part of skid correction training.
