No. It was low grip so no wear. It was only for 15mins anyway. Biblical understeer and a few times got a proper driftoo on. Was fun and they money was for a great cause.

I didn’t take a single pic myself as wanted to just enjoy the cars. Some were very basic and a **** load of BMWs. There was a facelift foz there in the grey/black plate ending MFO. I think they were at prodrive with us.

The mission motorsports guys took loads of the skid pan action but can’t seem to find them.

I found this @Lockheed


I'm on Page 6 and 7 onwards. Some quality cars there and some **** boxes. But was very BMW heavy on the skidpan. Was fun to watch the Masarati Gran turismo around the skid pan. The exhaust note was flipping epic!

Goodwood has a Skid pan, or had one. It was much smaller than the Thruxton looking at the pics. I haven't been in years though and at the time, they provided the cars from memory - some old Sierras amongst others from memory.

Skid pans are great fun to see how things work and more reliable than waiting for snow in a car park

Yeah they were a couple of moments where we were in a full on 4 wheel drifto and instances of oppo-albeit at just over walking pace 🦸‍♂️ Was epic fun and confirmed what I had long suspected-there is no LSD on the front axle. There was a technique involved to get the rear end out on the low grip surface. If you went in with steering lock and booted the throttle you would just get understeer.

The skid pan at thruxton is a 'P' shaped affair. Couple of cones to navigate around then either go left or right around the circle of cones to initiate and hold a slide. Was entertaining and alarming in equal measures. The skid pan at Goodwood is a square shaped one I believe and have only ever seen the in house BMW cars on it.

I know what you are saying about Estate car sunday. Was a bit damp wasn't it?! 🐡🐠🐟🐬
