    About the Skidpan

    The skidpan we utilise is located at the Sutton Road Driver Training Complex, located between Canberra International Airport and Queanbeyan, approximately 15 minutes from the centre of Canberra, 2 ½ hours from Sydney, and easily accessible from the Federal Highway.

    The skidpan is a kidney shaped purpose built circuit. The surface is smooth concrete which, when wet, becomes very slippery. The skidpan will not damage your car. The surface provides very little traction, meaning it won't wear your tyres. The area is surrounded by high grip concrete, meaning you won't come off the circuit. Fifth Gear Motoring only allows two vehicles on the circuit at any one time, meaning you have plenty of room and little chance of colliding.
