Why buy from us?
Learn the basics in a Learn2Drift liveried Lexus IS200 drift car for a bargain basement price. You'll be taught the art of doughnuts and figures of 8. Finish off experiencing first-hand what it's like to be a passenger in a car with a driver who competes in one of the many national or international drift series, with 5 high-speed passenger laps where a competitive environment will be replicated.
Welcome, introduction and safety briefing
Doughnuts – get taught how to do that perfect doughnut and control the car using steering and throttle control, maintaining that perfect circular slide
Figures of 8 – learn how to control the car while the weight is shifting from one direction to the other, using steering/counter steering and throttle control
5-lap high-speed passenger ride alongside one of Learn2Drift instructors in the choice of Learn2Drift passenger ride cars on the day
The instructor is alongside you for all the above driving sessions. They will be pushing you hard and fast to learn doughnuts and weight shift techniques as quickly as possible. Be prepared for some light-hearted banter from the cheeky instructors and note that the cars are put through their paces and won't look like they have come straight off the showroom floor.
You will be at the venue for approx 1 hour. There will be some waiting time between driving & your passenger session, but you can expect a minimum of 10 minutes behind the wheel.
You will be offered a collision damage waiver on the day for £10 if you wish to cover yourself should you damage a vehicle. This is optional and will not prevent you from taking part if you do not wish to take it.
