Thruxton Skid Pan

16 Jul 2022, Track Events

Returning in 2022 on Saturday 16 July is our popular Skid Pan day at the Thruxton race circuit.

Thruxton’s newly built skid pan is a wetted low grip facility that provides you with a safe and controlled environment to practice your sleek skills with very little wear and tear on the tyres or the car itself. Not only is this experience great fun, but more importantly a hugely worthwhile investment in your own and your passengers’ safety.

Be it the first time you’ve controlled a skid, tried steering out of danger, or sensing and recovering an unexpected aquaplane, skid pans are used to teach car control skills that you can only become proficient in from experience and practice. Thruxton’s experienced instructors and staff will be on hand to help you get the most from your time, be it in trying something that you’ve never had the chance to try, or in perfecting prolonged control of under and oversteer on the 45m diameter circle. An instructor will be outside giving detailed advice, instruction and encouragement via a two-way radio.

Available from £44, each session is 1 hour long, with a maximum of 6 vehicles per session to minimise waiting and maximise time spent looking through the side windows as you explore the limits of your Lotus. Spaces are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

Thank you to LDC member Michael Guy for capturing these photos from our event in 2021.
