Put your driving skills to the test as you do exactly what you would never normally want to do in a car. Skid in a safe environment with guidance from experienced instructors. If you panic when it starts to snow because you know you have to drive in it, this could be an experience that will change how confident you feel behind the wheel. Test your reflexes and co-ordination as you learn the actions and how it is all about the angles.

After detailed training from the instructor it will be a lot of fun as you purposely slide the car then experience hands-on what it’s like to tackle a skidding car. Learn about weight transfer, under steer and over steer, and the correct use of throttle and brakes. As well as having a thrilling time, you will leave a better and safer road user on completion of this driving experience.

To make your experience even more special, why not choose a Real Race Track and follow in the footsteps of the world's most famous racing drivers on these iconic tracks, venues for championship racing . All Real Race Tracks are marked with a * in the locations list.

What's Included?

  • Safety briefing and initial group instruction

What happens on the day?

On arrival you will normally be asked to sign an indemnity form which will also require parental/guardian signature for under 18's. Your training session will usually be shared with three other drivers taking turns to drive. You will be given an initial briefing, followed by detailed training from a qualified instructor and then hands-on experience tackling the skidding car.

The experience will provide basic instruction on control and prevention of understeer, oversteer, weight transfer, and the correct use of throttle and brakes.

Review by Catherine Biggs

3 out of 5 stars

I enjoyed the whole day but was under the impression that we would begin with more instruction before we got in the cars. I was quite nervous and I would have preferred more reassurance before I started to drive the cars.
