Skid Control Driving Experience for Two

by Red Letter Days


Out of Stock

Be the first to know when it's back in stock.


Chippenham, Wiltshire;:: Controlling a skid is a useful skill and this experience teaches you all about it - both as a fun day out and as something you may need to use practically. You'll start with a safety briefing and a discussion on the cause and cures of different kinds of skids. Then you'll use techniques that simulate loss of car control, with the vehicle seeming to get away from you. Skidpan driving focuses on both avoidance and recovery and you'll learn the skills of driving on ice, aquaplaning and skid avoidance exercises with friendly and expert instructors, who'll always keep their head even if you're a bit spooked. Courses are held either on an oil-like surface or using a computerised skid frame. Some courses also include time trials to test your new skills. Availability: Selected dates at least once a month throughout the year. Weather: The weather is unlikely to affect your experience. Don't despair if it's raining - this experience is even more exciting and slippery when it's wet. Duration: The length of the session varies from venue to venue, but as a guide will be between 90 minutes and three hours, including safety briefing, instruction, driving time and debrief. Numbers On Day: The number of people attending will vary. There will be up to four participants sharing each car. Spectators: Spectators are welcome. Facilities vary depending on the venue. Dress Code: Dress warmly and comfortably. If you are on a course that uses a skidpan (as opposed to an electronic frame) wear old shoes if you can, as you might get oil or suds from the skidpan on them. Guidelines: We will send you further location details when you have booked a date. Restrictions: Anyone with a full manual driving licence is welcome. Height and weight restrictions also apply at some venues; please check when booking. Other Info: Anyone under the influence of drink or drugs will not be allowed to take part.
