Skid Pan Experience

Skid Pan Experience

Our purpose built skid pan was completed in October 2010. It has been professionally designed for emergency driving training for both corporate drivers and general public. It is also used for gymkhana's and burn out competitions. The skid pan has water jets so it can be run dry or wet and it's 100m x 50m.

The Skid pan provides a safe place for drivers to practice different aspect of wet weather driving and about driving safely.  It allows you to practice and develop skills such as:

  • Car Control
  • Skid Recovery
  • Drifting
  • Power Slides
  • Safety in Wet Conditions

The skid pan can be privately hired to use wet or dry for your own needs, from just hiring it for yourself or for a whole group to drift the skid pan is all yours!

Here are a range of different Skid Pan experiences that are offered:

Audi driving experience

As part of signing up for a Hampton Downs based Audi driving experience event, you’ll have the chance to drive on the unique Skid Pan. Under the professional tuition of our competent instructors you’ll perform exercises that will enhance both your safety and your driving pleasure.
