Road Potomac Skidpad Training Car Control Clinic

Summit Point Motorsports Park

About this event

Road Potomac - Car Control Clinic Wet Skidpad Event + Dry Fun Runs

This event features a wet skidpad PLUS dry autocross fun runs. Fun runs are NOT timed and NOT competitive. They are designed to help you feel your car get unsettled in the dry after feeling your car unsettled on the wet skidpad. You will need a helmet for this event. (If you do not have a helmet, we will have a limited number of helmets available to rent for $50.)

PLEASE NOTE: Summit Point no longer allows EVs or hybrids to be driven in any motorsport discipline. We cannot accept an EV or hybrid vehicle for our skidpad events.

Location: Summit Point Motorsports Park's Potomac Pad. (See the map here)

Once payment is charged, there are no refunds. Please double check your availability before registering.

Approximate amount of time per driver on skidpad: 50 min.

Approximate number of fun runs per driver: 20

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 35 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.
