You’re a pretty good driver, but when the country is blanketed with snow and ice, driving can be a challenge for the best of us. Follow Tim Shaw - the self-professed best driver ever - as he gets a masterclass in winter driving from professional ice driver Andrew McKenna, in the latest short film from elephant.co.uk’s Secrets of Driving Like a Pro series.
Watch what happens when Tim is confronted with taking a rather nice sports car onto an international-sized ice rink at www.elephant.co.uk/winterdriving. Discover the significant role a balanced throttle plays , the recommended distance from the vehicle in front, and what you definitely shouldn’t be looking at when driving on snowy and icy roads. There’s also a checklist for your winter driving survival kit, so you’ll never be left high and dry should the worst happen and you have to spend hours by the side of the road in freezing temperatures.
Make sure you’re prepared for every winter driving eventuality, and enter this competition to win £100 of Halfords vouchers to help you stock up on the essentials, from a new set of tyres to a shovel and a proper ice scraper rather than a CD case!
