Become a safer and more aware driver, whilst receiving tips from the experts on Mt Cotton’s Diesel Skid Pan. Skid pan driver training gives you the chance to jump behind the wheel of your own car or our rear wheel drive Lotus Exige and learn the secrets to increased vehicle control.
This is the ultimate in driver training and skid pan control! Just imagine, it’s a miserable wet day and you’re unaware that a truck travelling ten cars in front of you is dropping diesel all over the road. Suddenly the car in front props and you have to brake and swerve to avoid a collision. Your car suddenly skids sideways! What you do next could save your life. Do you know what you would do? Driving one of our rear-wheel-drive Lotus Exige’s, you will be personally coached in the skills necessary to correct a skidding car.
During the skid pan driver training you will work to correct oversteer and understeer and learn what to do if you lose control of your car. More importantly, you will learn how to avoid getting into these situations in the first place. You are also welcome to try your own car on the skid pan (subject to noise restrictions).

Great morning..Thank you
I was so impressed by my experience and by the professionalism of Paul & Levi that I sent off a note of appreciation to Paul on Saturday afternoon - a few hours after completing the event.
A morning at Mt Cotton with Paul and the two Lotus Exiges is just fantastic. Not only is the day great fun, but you also come away with extra skills that could help in a sticky situation out on the road.
Getting out on the skid pan is a fantastic experience - especially in your own car! A quick bit of training with the instructor in the passenger seat is all you need to start taking corners sideways. Powerslides, drifting, coutersteer, oversteer and understeer are all explained and then you get to do it yourself! We even got to go out on our own, and also as passengers while the experts really went wild - a definite must-have experience for any car enthusiast. Be prepared to wash your car afterwards if you use your own ride :D
The experience was great fun - definitely recommend. Opened up my eyes to this very important field of driver training.
The skid-pan driving was an invaluable experience. It really helped me appreciate what little knowledge and skill my driving has. I am going to follow this up with a defencive driving course. Thank you.
Had a ball! I would recommend this course to anyone who's ever watched a movie with a car chase and wondered how they do it. Thanks
Would reccomend it to anyone.
Weekday courses operate 5pm – 9pm
