Skid Pan

The Skid Pan, sometimes referred to as the Skid Prevention Area, is a purpose built facility consisting of 2 areas:

  1. allow manoeuvring area for light vehicles
  2. a figure 8 shaped concrete circuit layout that allows drivers to understand the causes and experience the effects of skidding in wet conditions. The experiential learning gained from this activity will assist individuals to better understand understeer, oversteer, acceleration and braking in wet conditions.

The skid pan area includes an undercover observation area and an amenities block.
