- keep calm; go at your own pace. - keep your distance. - keep warm clothing, boots, snacks, water, a spade, a spare tyre and a fully charged phone in the car. - check tyres, coolant, lights and indicators. - be gentle with steering; keep hands at 9 and 3. - think where your front wheels are turning; if you have extra steering
then accelerate, you’ll go off in the wrong direction - remember that when a car slides, if it has a lot of momentum going one way, it will have
as much momentum when it comes back the other way. Be quick on the steering to catch it. - be gentle on the acceleration, or you can create a big slide. - stay in high gear. Too many engine revs provoke wheelspin. - remember weight transfer; exert more weight on the front wheels than the rear; when you accelerate weight transfers to the rear; when you lift off the throttle or brake, weight transfers to the front. - life the accelerator then brake gently before a bend, gradually
releasing the brakes as you approach the apex. - in a spin, keep your eye on the space your aiming for, not the hazard. - when losing control, use the brakes as much as possible; better to
crash at 20mph than 50mph. - deer on the road? Brake instead of swerving. - be seen; always use headlights in dull conditions.
