Paul Stokell's Driving Events


Hi Visitor,


 From all the staff and instructors
at Driving Events we wish you all
a Merry Christmas and a
Happy New Year.

Thank you!

A sincere thank you for your ongoing support of our training events throughout 2018. It was a big year with many young drivers furthering their skills at our Defensive & Advanced driving courses through to Track Day regulars and new drivers alike. Hopefully we will see many of you back in 2019 and look forward to helping you achieve your goals.

New for 2019

T4 - Tour & Track Targa Tasmania

Anyone ever contemplated driving the magnificent roads of Tasmania on a closed road following Targa Tasmania....? We have the answer! Following on from this years highly successful event, join us as we head down to take on Targa Tasmania in our specially prepared Supercharged V6 Lotus Exige. We're not asking you to compete but join the field in the Touring Section leading the competition field with the aid and guidance of our own appointed tour guide. Plus follow this up with a Track Day at Barskerville Raceway in Hobart, one of the countries best and most demanding short courses. Dates will be from 28th April to 7th May so if this has grabbed your attention, set the dates aside, grab a partner to join you. Further details can be found HERE.

Tour Targa Great Barrier Reef

This years event was exceptional so we plan to conduct another tour to take in some of QLD's finest roads. The community of Cairns is very supportive of this event even going to the trouble of shutting 3 of the major highways so we can enjoy our cars to their potential. Details will be posted online soon! 30th August - 1st September 2019

Tarmac Short Course Challenge!

Well its not exactly new but after trialing the concept throughout 2018 we have again committed to run 6 events at Lakeside on the DTC. This is a great way to safely and inexpensively enjoys your car in a gymkhana style event.

Race Gear

We are now stockists of Arai, RJays and THH safety equipment. So if you are in the market for a new helmet, driving suit, gloves or boots why not give us a try and we can deliver the gear to you at the track. Pre order required.

How hard can it be to correct a sliding car at 40km/h?

For those that have never been on a diesel skid pan before – you will be surprised!!

The basis of Performance Driving requires skills far and beyond what we experience day to day on the road. Being prepared for a car to slide and having the skills and balance necessary to control that eventuality are a prerequisite.

For most customers the biggest improvement in their driving will come when they develop “feel” for what is about to happen. A slide shouldn’t be something that catches you by surprise, you need to develop feel for what is about to happen and react accordingly. The only way to improve this is practice, and what better way than in the safety of a skid pan environment.

This course is designed to make you a safer and more aware driver whilst receiving tips from the experts on car control and skid control techniques. Following a brief training overview you will jump behind the wheel of either our rear wheel drive Lotus Exige or your own vehicle where you will receive 1 to 1 coaching on the skills necessary to correct a skidding car. You will learn to recognise and control understeer, oversteer and what to do if you get out of control. More importantly you will learn how to avoid getting into these situations in the first place. Note: If using your own car on the skid pan please be aware we are subject to strict noise restrictions. Call or email if you are in doubt.

Tea, Coffee, snacks supplied.
