What Can I Expect

Try out the Castle Combe Skid Pan for sliding fun in the Cotswolds! On arrival at this skid control venue near Chippenham in Wiltshire, you'll meet the highly experienced team - most of whom, like chief instructors Jeff and Dave, are ex-Police fast response driver/trainers or ADI instructors - and listen to a short safety briefing before heading out to the pan.

This venue uses completely standard vehicles with normal road tyres. A non-toxic solution is mixed with water to turn the normal tarmac on this Castle Combe pan into a very skid-able surface for lots of driving fun. The first session lets each driver 'have a go' - and this is where you will discover just how easy it is to lose control of the car!

You will then receive a full 20 minute classroom session covering all aspects of skid control, including front wheel skids, rear wheel skids, four wheel skids, weight transfer, spin and under steer. Armed with all this knowledge, 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 successfully controlling the car.

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, both essential factors to bear in mind when on the roads in hazardous conditions. To finish, you will take part in a fun time trial, complete with prizes for Castle Combe's winning skid pan driver!

A fantastic experience which should be included in every standard driving tuition. My wife, a driver of 35 years and my daughter a driver of nearly 2 years both felt the benefit of this experience. It was both educational and fun. The instructors were excellent and both my wife and daughter now feel more confident in they're driving skills.
I would thoroughly recommend this to any driver no matter how many years they have been driving and DriveTech is the perfect place to learn.
Yes, I recommend this product.
