    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    Leawood911:

    My daughter hydroplaned her first car on the highway and walked away from a total wreckage. Lucky for her. 
    As a parent teaching her to drive I failed her. It was a horrible rainstorm and the speed limit was irrelevant. Even half the speed would have been dangerous. In teaching her I failed to stress to her how important it is to first drive based on the conditions and not the speed limits. So simple yet a fatal mistake to to tell her that and make certain she understood. When whoopsy said his friend was not even speeding it brought back memories. Sounds like the exact same mistake. Glad he is okay. And it looks like a rental!

    Perhaps you could gift her a session at the Porsche Experience Centre on the kick plate and ice hill tracks to improve her skills.

    She raced go karts since 10 so I would not worry about her skills in that regard. I think we already discussed the value of this ice training in another thread. It would not help in hydroplaning conditions as much as slowing down can. I have been in rain storms which stopped traffic on the highway with zero visibility.
