Thruxton Motor Circuit, Hampshire 1hr session From £69
CAR control – or a lack of it – can make the difference between a narrow shave and disaster in treacherous conditions. The safest way to learn how to rein in understeer and oversteer is arguably on the skid-pan, and Thruxton’s greatvalue £69 ‘early bird’ deal gives you an opportunity to get to grips with both.
You’ll be behind the wheel of a MINI Cooper and Toyota GT86 in a one-hour session that includes 25 minutes of driving, but if you don’t fancy the 08.30am start, there’s a whole range of other courses on offer.
For £125 you can experience your own car’s handling on the skid-pan, while £299 buys a bespoke one-to-one session tailored to your requirements.
