RP Car Control Clinic Skidpad

Summit Point Motorsports Park

About this event

Road Potomac - Car Control Clinic Skidpad Event

Location: Summit Point Motorsports Park's Shenandoah Circuit. (See the map here)

Approximate amount of time per driver on skidpad: 75 min.

We welcome both beginner and advanced students. If you've never done skidpad before, or have not yet been able to correct for understeer and oversteer, please register as a beginner.

Our wet skidpad lets you learn how to recognize and recover from understeer (front skid) and oversteer (rear skid) at slower speeds (generally 30 mph or less). Beginners are grouped with one other car on the skidpad at the same time, while advanced students are grouped at up to three at a time. We stress car control that can be applied during regular driving, or events like autocross and high performance driving. The skidpad does leave cars dirty, so expect to need a wash after the event.

Breakfast and lunch are provided. We are unfortunately unable to accommodate dietary restrictions. If you have dietary restrictions, please bring your own food. A refrigerator and microwave are available on the premises.
