Thruxton Race Circuit – Skid Pan

Here is an opportunity to learn more about driving cars in winter conditions in a safe, friendly and fun environment.

We would be able to book a group session for 8 – 10 people (normally only available on Monday- Wednesday £899.00 inc VAT). However we would also be able to book a weekend for the weekday price, which would give us all morning 0830-1230/1300 on a Saturday or Sunday…

Thruxton are happy that all COVID measures are in place for this number of members. A robust re-opening plan has been completed including a COVID-19 risk assessment. Additional measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of guests and colleagues whilst at the skid pan.


  • We have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment
  • We have additional cleaning, handwashing, hand sanitising and hygiene procedures in place
  • We have taken all reasonable steps to ensure government guidance on social distancing is maintained

Full details on the measures that are in place and what to expect on the day are available here

In a safe and controlled environment, they will help you develop the skills needed to correct and control a sliding car, a situation that you may encounter on the public roads. Not only is this great fun, but more importantly a hugely worthwhile investment in your own and your passengers’ safety.

Unlike many venues, Thruxton use modern front and rear-wheel-drive cars so that not only will you understand and feel how the electronic safety systems, fitted as standard to most cars, will help in adverse conditions, but also how to control a sliding car when all the systems are switched off relying on pure driver skill. We feel this will give you the best preparation for anything the roads and weather may throw at you on four wheels.
