    I attended a skid pan experience today at Castle Coombs. It was first class. The instructor’s were amazing- exactly what you need for this type of experience. They were very knowledgeable, and very supportive of individual talents and so so friendly . Absolutely top notch. I totally loved the experience. I was so nervous before I arrived as I has not done anything like this before but the instructors were so welcoming and made you feel so comfortable- thank you. Such a great day- and so beneficial for everyone to do. A huge thank you to you both. I will treasure the lessons that you have taught me. Kath.

    Just quick note to say a big thank you on behalf of our gang who were at the skid pan on Saturday morning, and to express our appreciation for the skill and good humour of the two Daves.
    Everyone has said how worthwhile it was and how much they enjoyed the experience. I was personally very pleased to be able to bring three youngsters, who have had a valuable experience at an early stage in their driving, which will make them so much safer on the roads.
    Thank you.

    We all had an amazing afternoon on the skid pan, and they all learnt how to handle a car in skid. It was a fun and useful training session.

    Thank you

    We wanted to thank you for an amazing course on Saturday 26th. We had a fantastic time and learnt a great deal about controlling a car under trying circumstances. The two instructors were a delight and very patient.
    Their explanations were first rate and the practical instructions could not be bettered. We began skidding around the course, to be frank, all over the place. By the end however we were driving around in some order using the techniques explained to us.
    We all felt out of our comfort zone on several occasions, but the driving experience helped this no end. Not only did we have a memorable visit, but we actually feel safer on the road as a result of the knowledge and practical driving skills given to us.
    We all just wished to pass on or thanks for a memorable day to you and them.
    With every good wish,
