I was given the drifting half day experience for a birthday present and it was an awesome day. It was a really well run process and it was smooth to get there, sign in and to get in the car and start driving. Tom, the instructor was very patient and assertive where he needed to be, even when I just wasn’t getting it. The hot lap that he did was incredible and it was really good fun to be able to let loose in someone else’s car. I would highly recommend it.

All staff members were friendly and approachable, which made the experience both entertaining and satisfying. We had specific needs from the day (namely getting to grips with a rear-wheel drive car and the way it moves, rather than being particularly interested in drifting skills and techniques) and these were taken on board in every way by the instructors to and were catered to to the best of their ability. Dawn and Mike were particularly friendly and helpful, which shone out all the more considering the issues noted above in my review of trackdays.
