We’re going drifting again!! As some of you know, through the last few years we’ve worked with Mike Renner from the BMW Performance Center to put together several “wet-handling” events on the ½ mile skid pad at the Michelin Proving Grounds near Laurens, SC. Those were big fun with all the drivers learning much about car-control while they practiced drifting on the skid pad.
Mike and the Sandlapper Chapter are set for another session at the Michelin Proving Grounds facility on the afternoon of 11/12/16. To offer something different, this event will take place on their wet handling course as opposed to the skid pad we have used in the past.
The wet handling course is 9/10 of a mile. To get a better visual of it, you can think “road course layout” with sprinklers and low grip asphalt. It is an excellent opportunity for drivers to develop a keen sense of feel for their cars and tires.
