Just wanted to say thank you for such a fantastic afternoon yesterday. We really enjoyed it and picked up lots of tips as well. Our instructors - Andy and Jason - were both professional and friendly and we took away new ideas from your session as well. All in all an educational and fun afternoon out. Thanks again for a great afternoon.

I wanted to provide some feedback on the event. The workshop talk was really informative and kept interesting by the information being in small chunks. It was very effective. Stu, our driving mentor for the driving section, was fantastic. Very humorous and the feedback provided was very helpful. Lastly our skid pan and ice hill instructor was fantastic. I believe it was Mike (he works part time 4 hours a week... should help narrow it down if it wasn't mike!). He ensured we understood the benefits of the exercises we were doing but ensured it was as fun as possible in his own words "to make sure we remember it if we need it". Overall me and my partner couldn't fault the day. It was brilliant throughout and well run. A big thanks to the CarKraft team and the Porsche Experience Centre team.

Thank you for inviting me to the CarKraft event on Saturday, it was a great experience and I feel it was received really well by the other attendees. This is something I feel that every driver, experienced or not, could take advantage of. It was well run by knowledgeable, enthusiastic and professional trainers from Highways, Police and staff at Porsche.

On the day, you will take part in three dynamic workshops led by road safety professionals:

Safer Driving workshop

This interactive session looks at dispelling many of the myths and misunderstandings around speed, drink/drug driving, mobile phones, seat belts/in car safety and attitudes towards other road users.

Kick Plate/Ice Hill

The Kick Plate is a movable metal plate set flush with the road surface and triggered remotely as the car travels over it thereby generating the effect of a loss of wheel traction.

The Ice Hill generates the feel of sheet ice with controlled water jets. You will explore car control under extreme road conditions. You will also learn to understand how the car handles and how ABS (anti-lock brakes) work.

You will also learn how to carry out simple and potentially lifesaving vehicle safety checks.

Observed Drive

This is not an assessment or driving lesson, but a chance to drive on predetermined routes, comprising both motorway and rural roads, whilst under the guidance of a highly trained Police Advanced Driver. They will suggest advanced techniques for you to integrate into your driving, together with building skills of observation, anticipation, and awareness to help make you a safer, more confident driver.

Each of the elements is programmed to run for 1 hour and you will be using cars provided by Volvo Cars UK.
