Sounds good to me too.

I have been on that skid pan too. It's very clean.

I think I did more sliding on that day trip up the Blue Mountains a few months back. It was very wet.

Only if you slide into another car.

$250 sounds expensive for 4 hrs.

I did a 1 day course there for about $200 recently. Mind you there was probably 12 cars. It was run by Eastern Creek driver training or something along those lines.

SPDRCR might be able to chime in as he organized it.
