Skid-pan Ex­pe­ri­ence

Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

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.
