Test Road Conditions
TEST ROAD CONDITIONS FREQUENTLY
When driving in challenging conditions, determine how much traction, or grip, is available. Make sure that no one is behind you and hit the brakes firmly until the wheels lock up. This will give you a clear indication of the grip available at that particular point in time. Over the course of a long trip, repeat this test to continually monitor grip.
It was great to have the opportunity to get on a course with adverse conditions to test and improve our skills.
