Forester vs Skid Pan

Kristie’s Christmas present last year was a Skid Pan session at Fairburn, because I thought it would be a good idea for her to get familiar with the new car in a safe environment with a trained instructor….err..who am I kidding, what could be more fun that hooning around in a 4WD Turbo on a watered flat slick surface with very little chance of hitting anything.


So we finally got around to booking in for the course, and Kristie spend four hours on the skid pan (shared with 5-6 other cars, two at a time) alternating between instructor led hooning and solo hooning. The end result was an increased appreciation of how ABS works, how hard it is to 4 wheel drift an All Wheel Drive vehicle and four layers of the most horrible baked on dirt which took an hour to wash off.

A good day!
