There are significant benefits of taking a skid pan course. People usually only experience a significant, serious skid in a terrifying, real life situation. Due to this fact it makes sense to experience what it is like in a safe, controlled (and often fun!) environment. Shortly we will be able to advice on a skid pan nearest you.
Benefits of a Skid Pan Course:
1. Improve confidence
2. Understand different types of skids (understeer, oversteer, four wheel drift)
3. Learn what actually is “aquaplaning”
4. Learn what causes skids
5. Learn how to control a skid
Apart from learning how to control a skid, a large emphasis is placed on driving in a defensive way, which reduced the chance of a skid occurring. Defensive driving is always better than reactive driving!
