If you're looking for some thrilling driving experience, the Castle Combe Skid Pan Course in Cotswolds is definitely worth checking out! Upon arrival at this skid control venue near Chippenham in Wiltshire, you'll meet the experienced team, most of whom have a background in fast response driving or ADI instruction. Before heading out to the pan, you'll receive a short safety briefing to ensure that you're ready to enjoy your driving experience safely. The Castle Combe Skid Pan uses standard vehicles with normal road tyres. A non-toxic solution is mixed with water to transform the tarmac into a skid-able surface for a lot of driving fun. During the first session, you'll get the chance to "have a go" and discover just how easy it is to lose control of the car! After the first session, you'll receive an informative 20-minute classroom session covering all aspects of skid control. This includes front-wheel skids, rear-wheel skids, four-wheel skids, weight transfer, spin, and understeer, so you'll be armed with all the knowledge you need to successfully control the car. Then, it's back out to the pan for a second go at slides and skids at this thrilling Castle Combe set-up - and this time, you'll be able to put your newly acquired skills to the test. As well as the two sessions out of the Castle Combe skid pan, this half-day experience also includes tutoring on Anti-lock Braking Systems and cadence braking, which are both essential factors to bear in mind when driving on hazardous roads.
