What happens on the day?
There’s nothing quite like the tradition of stars of Hollywood films drifting effortlessly round corners in their beautifully pristine car, but try that on the roads of Britain and if you don’t roll your vehicle, you’ll soon have a visit from the police.
But fear not young drifter, there is a way to experience that feeling of complete and utter ‘cool’ with our taster drifting session. Get behind the wheel with a free pass to skid slide and glide your way around the track and see just how exhilarating this sport can be!
You’ll be taught all the tricks of the trade by an experienced instructor including J-turns, sliding and how to use the handbrake all in the comfort of our specially customised Mazda MK2 MX-5 1.8S.
