Skid Pan Training Session

June 25, 2017 @ 8:15 am - 12:30 pm

Want to improve your car control?

If so, come along to our first skid pan training session for the year. It’s a great way for you to learn to control your car in wet conditions , performed in a safe environment. The Skidpan is a kidney shaped circuit and can be utilised for safety based ‘anti-skid’ training as well as performance based ‘drift/car control’ training. The theory is the same, but the application varies and outcomes are very different.


The surface is smooth concrete which, when wet, becomes very slippery. The surface provides very little traction, meaning it won’t wear your tyres or damage your car. The area is surrounded by high grip concrete, meaning you won’t come off the circuit. Two vehicles on the circuit are allowed at any one time, meaning you have plenty of room and little chance of colliding.


The course is hosted by 5th Gear Motoring and includes the following:

  • Introduction to advanced car control and skid control
  • Cornering techniques
  • Defensive driving techniques
  • Update your knowledge of your vehicles technology
  • Emergency response techniques
  • One-on-one coaching
  • Free time on skidpan
  • Tea/coffee/biscuits provided (soft drinks and snacks can be purchased)

Cost:   Non-members $150 / Members $140
When:   June 25 @ 8:15 am – 12:30 pm
Where:  Sutton Driver Training Centre
