Skid Control Course
Lots of fun and potentially lifesaving! Many drivers first experience the unnerving sensation of a skid out driving on the road in their own car; this might result in an accident or the driver losing control.
Driving on a skid-pan is a safe and pleasurable way to understand and feel how a car can react when beyond its limits in wet road conditions, skidding on black ice or even aquaplaning. Learn simple and effective techniques to take back the control and equip yourself with skills to confidently drive in all types of road conditions.

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.
