Skid Control

Do you know how to control a skid?

**Christmas offer** – As an extra special festive treat, Silverstone are offering two free gift tickets to The Silverstone Experience (due to open Spring 2019) worth £40 for every driving experience that is purchased before Christmas Day. 

Have you ever felt the surge of excitement generated by a sliding car? Now you can put your true driving skills to the test in our new Renault Megane skid car.

On our purpose-built skid area you’ll master driving techniques to control your vehicle in the event of a skid. This uniquely enjoyable Skid Control Experience teaches you valuable driving skills in a risk-free environment and we’re confident you’ll leave Silverstone a better, safer, road user. Whether you’re driving for business or pleasure, Britain’s inclement weather means you can never be sure what hazardous conditions are just around the corner.
