    Cool. If it helps to make people happy, we could have a 30 minute class session about the objectives of skid pad training, etc.

    Good idea...wet or dry...both have pros & cons. For sure I can use the practice.

    Hopefully wet. Easier on the cars, and I think it teaches more delicate sense and control. Dry is cool too, though.

    ABSOLUTELY
    I've been suggesting a skid pad day for 2-3 years now, so thanks for picking up the initiative.
    I'm assuming it will be a wet pad as at our HPDEs. Much safer and much cheaper (i.e. tires).

    Next year, definitely, as my entire suspension will be changing. Actually, on second thought, it might come in handy, as I can play with tire pressures and see how much roll over I get. Ok, ok, ok, you've convinced me, I'm in!

    It depends on the location. On the skidpad off of Summit Main, absolutely yes. On the "Washington Circuit," probably not.
