Oct. 2nd 2018

All day I wanted to be driving rather than photographing the event.  Personally I have driven the track and participated in Auto Cross but I never have done the skid pad drill.   They wet down a large circle then you increase speed driving in a circle until the rear of the car steps out.  You learn to correct, pause and correct again as the car comes back to the direction of travel. Someday I hope to participate on the skid pad. Everyone had a great time.  Can you find the image where the car has only three wheels on the ground?
