Modern vehicles have electronic traction control systems as well as stability control, hill descent control and in some cases centre diff lock, while others include front or rear diff lock.
The problem is drivers never get to experience how these systems work until they are in an emergency driving situation, they often hear the vehicle making strange noises as the traction systems start to work but don’t know what is happening, this can lead to panic and poor driver decisions.
Auckland Off Road Adventure Park's training area is the only off road training facility in the Auckland region to have a specially built driver training skills track. Conditions are controlled and repeatable so everyone in the training group experiences the same scenarios.
