- The skid pad teaches the difference between understeer and oversteer (and is a lot of fun!), while
- The slalom teaches the importance of looking ahead, weight transfer, and the proper amount of steering input.
- Combining the two into a challenging road course puts everything together and includes a variety of turns and a “lane toss” where a devious instructor directs the student to switch into one of two lanes and stop the car, all in distances that look difficult if not impossible (but believe us, with practice it is possible).
The school wraps up with a fun ‘time trial’ that connects the skidpad and exercise areas where the goal is consistency through several runs. Schedule

Front- and rear-wheel drive vehicles are required to have snow tires on the drive wheels as a minimum. Snow tires will this icon on the tire sidewall: .Our school is a great opportunity for licensed drivers of all ages to learn how to confidently drive in a New England winter. Held at a safe and isolated facility, this is the perfect place to learn car control skills. All cars and small SUVs are welcome (they don’t even have to be Audis!). Trucks and large SUVs are just too heavy for this particular venue and are therefore not allowed. This event is very much at your own pace, and everyone from inexperienced to very experienced drivers will learn a great deal and have a blast. For drivers who have enjoyed our high performance driver education events on racetracks, the Winter Driving School is an excellent opportunity to hone car control skills that then apply to all sorts of driving, improving safety even on the track.
