Skid Car Experience - £115 Per Person

"Frightened to death before it started. Have never skidded in my entire time driving. Thanks to the professionalism of Paul, I thoroughly enjoyed it and am now confident if I do ever skid, I have the knowledge to recover from it effectively. I loved it!"

Skid Car vouchers available for just £115 per person - valid for 12 months for training at Donington Park, DE74 2BN

With four Skid Cars available, this superb experience is based at Donington Park Race Circuit which is within easy reach of Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Leicester, etc. RED Training, formerly the NFE Group, has been delivering Skid Training to the UK’s Fleet driver for many years. They even train the snowplough drivers how to get to work and many blue light service drivers.

Now available for just £115 per person this is the perfect gift that truly may save a life. The session lasts for 2 ½ hours and is shared by up to 3 drivers, spectators are welcome and refreshments are available on site.

After a short briefing session our experienced and patient trainers will guide everyone along at their own pace. The flexibility of the Scandinavian designed Skid Car allows for the trainer to imitate wet, snow and ice which in turn allows drivers to experience not just a wide range of surfaces but a wide range of skids too; understeer, oversteer and aquaplaning will all be covered. By learning the ‘causes’ of a skid, drivers will quickly learn how to control, and more importantly, avoid them completely back in the real world.
