Mixed Surface Skidpad

Race Lab’s Mixed Surface Skidpad is the ideal place to practice new skills and enhance your driving techniques in a safe and controlled environment. Drive your own car to understand how it performs in challenging conditions, or drive a school car for an even bigger thrill.

Not all vehicles are suitable for the training, SUVs or more rugged vehicles are ideal.

All the packages below include your own private Race Lab instructor in the car coaching you every step of the way. Also, your time will maximize actual driving, not waiting around for other people to take their turn!

Are you a more experienced motorsports driver that wants to skip the basics to work on advanced skills and have some serious fun? Or prefer time on the skidpad without coaching? Give us a call to discuss a custom package!
