Several of the driver training companies will do some work on the skid-pan as part of a course.

I have never heard of anywhere that would only let you do that though, or for free or a small cost. :-(

Definitely got a skid pan training in Sydney - GTrydaz have organised a day, I think its at Eastern Creek.

Not sure about Melbourne - but hey Id say with Melb weather and roads just about anywhere any day could be a skid pan!

Yes we do get some rain in Melb and the roads are slipery but I would prefer to do it legally and safely.

There's a Skid pan at Subaru Docklands, I saw Petter Solberg rip into it a few years ago in a poor little REX. I'm sure if we got enough guys together we could organise a session..

So are skid pans:

Wet/dry asphalt

Dirt

Sand

Crushed rock

Mud/wet dirt

Normally it would be wet tarmac.
Good places will have a dedicated watering system that puts an even (and metered) amount of water on the surface.

Thanks Krush and wellcome (Back?). I'm not sure that Docklands would let us use there skid pan due to insurance issues, but it would be worth looking into.

Thanks Drew, that sounds like a great idea. I have many photos of my XT however I am unable to ad atachments on this site and don't know how to use photobucket etc. Guess I will learn one day or will be able to post photos here again soon. Dave.
