It may help you in winter when snow and ice are likely to occur on the road. Although your sports car may be hibernating, still the video about ‘How to correct a slide’ is highly educational even for drivers of front wheel drive cars.
Dan Robinson, contributor for Iceroadsafety.com, has made a series of three videos about this topic. Besides the embedded slide video he’s also made video’s about icy bridges and freezing rain. Enjoy watching this video and learn from it.
