The four-hour session begins with a briefing to outline the structure of the day. Participants are then allocated an instructor within a group of three and are taken to the track for an assessment and to reconnect with the basics of vehicle dynamics.
Participants are then put through their paces on the track and skidpan in a series of exercises including slalom, swerve and avoid, as well as wet weather steering and braking. Instructors personally coach each participant, building confidence and improving performance in each exercise.
