What am I letting myself in for?

I shall hopefully reach my 60th birthday intact later on in this month as my present is a session on the skidpan at Knockhill Racing Circuit just by Dunfermline!
What am I to expect, will I need to wear brown trousers, will I bottle out and will I enjoy it???

Oh, anyone know of a nice little place to eat nearby, preferably a licensed establishment, as I am pretty sure I will need a beer afterwards!

I bought my Wife a days rallying and skidpan training, she loved it, i was allowed to sit in the back of the car for her last few skidpan laps, great fun.

No brown trousers needed !

Some European Country’s specify that you have to do a days Skid pan training within 1 year of passing your driving test or you have your licence taken away.

If inexperienced drivers enjoy it then im sure you will.

"What am I to expect"

Your wrinkly pass like me, I get mine next month.

Enjoy the skid pan, sounds fun.

Looks like the right time for training, just before winter conditions set-in. Good Luck and enjoy.

with 30 tonnes of 13 meter trailer hanging off the back end with a stubborn streak and a mind of its own :(

Relax and enjoy yourself. Its more fun than a sack full of ferrets.

As my mind has now been put to rest, all I need is the place to eat :o)

Brumas. I am sure you will enjoy it. If you haven't got brown undies, make sure the skid marks are on the road.
