So What is Drifting?
Drifting’s popularity has been brought to public attention by the recent block buster movies ‘The Fast and Furious’ and ‘Tokyo Drift’. It’s also heavily featured in both ‘Top Gear’ and ’5th Gear’ TV programmes, no supercar road test is complete without a tyre burning drift session on the test track, so let us teach you how to do it too!
The Drift driving experience is a hugely popular activity. Like other driving experiences drift driving is an exhilarating thrill. You receive expert tuition as you get to launch your real drift car side ways through the corners, kicking up stones and dust as you power off to the next corner. Your tuition will teach you where you need to start turning, how to control a slide round a corner and using the handbrake to set you into a slide!
Once you’ve mastered how to drift the car around the course you then get to jump into the passenger seat and hold on as you’re taken for an expert driven ride!
Don’t worry its safe!
Our Drift days are run on purpose built, low grip tarmac tracks, located on the infield of the Oulton park race circuit in Cheshire. The worst thing that can happen is a minor spin off onto the grass, providing great entertainment for the spectators! And don’t forget, your instructor will be there at all times.
Our highly experienced instructors literally help and drive with you, using dual controls. This means that even people with no experience at all can very quickly learn the art of skid control, power slides and special braking techniques. As you get better your instructor will help less, you will be amazed how quickly you will be DRIFTING!
