Congratulations to GB Olympic Team on their Success!
Olympic Athletes from the Great Britain Bobsleigh & Skeleton Association based at the University of Bath visited us during the course of their training for a skidpan training day.
They spend a lot of their time training in a cold climate. Being able to drive in icy conditions is an important skill in getting them safely to their training sessions. After listening to what the athletes wanted the team at Drive-Tech created a bespoke skidpad train day. This was designed to teach vital driving skills required for the conditions the athletes would experience.
No matter how good we think we are as drivers, heavy rain, ice and snow reduce traction, manoeuvrability and visibility making it easy for any car to skid. At Drive-Tech we offer two levels of skid pan course.
Standard Skidpan Training Day
This course covers the process of learning basic Skid Control techniques and is a good safe environment to test your skid handling skills. Our training course is great fun and educational driving both rear wheel and front wheel cars. Our experienced instructors will show you how to react to poor weather conditions and put you back in control.
Intensive Skidpan Training Day
This is a more detailed course covering advanced techniques covering all the defensive driving of the standard Skidpan Course. We also cover understeer and oversteer, ABS braking, 4WD in depth.
