If you do specifically request the booking be cancelled then fees will be calculated from the date you request a cancellation. Drift Limits will only cancel a booking if the contact comes from the booking email and the email specifically requests the booking is cancelled.

Upon confirming a booking for a group event or private hire, a non-refundable deposit may be required to secure the agreed-upon date and time. This deposit serves to reserve the requested slot exclusively for your event and to facilitate the necessary preparations on our part. It is important to note that once the deposit has been paid, it is non-refundable.
The deposit amount is determined based on the nature of the event and the facilities required. This deposit secures your reservation and guarantees our commitment to providing you with a seamless and memorable experience.
In the event that circumstances require the cancellation or rescheduling of your booking, the deposit will be held by us and will not be credited towards the overall cost of the experience. The decision to hold the deposit, rather than applying it to the experience cost, is contingent upon the notice provided for the cancellation or rescheduling.
We understand that unforeseen situations can arise, necessitating changes to your event plans. To ensure fairness and clarity, the outcome regarding the deposit in such situations will be determined by the notice given as per our rebooking fees outlined in point 5.
We highly recommend communicating any changes to your event plans as early as possible to allow for the best possible outcome for all parties involved.
- Changes of plan
If the nominated participant for any experience is unable to attend and you wish to send a replacement participant to take the reserved experience, we can accept substitutes up to the time of registration on the designated date and time, provided we have written authorisation from either the purchaser or the original participant of the relevant experience and the nominated substitute complies with all other necessary criteria as set out in these Terms and Conditions. If your participant(s) do not arrive we cannot share the paid for driving laps out amongst other attendees, the missing attendee may be rebookable depending on the experience booked but would be subject to our discretion and fees payable.

- Force Majeure and Weather
All Experiences are offered subject to availability of dates, vehicles, facilities and, of course, the weather or other events beyond our control and accordingly Drift Limits cannot guarantee that a particular date or session will not be cancelled due to extreme adverse weather conditions or other events such as any governmental restrictions, riot, commotion, acts of God, industrial action, breakdown of vehicles or any failure of gas, water services, electricity etc. If Drift Limits is unable to run your Experience due to extreme adverse weather conditions or other events beyond Drift Limits’ control You will be able to re-book your Experience for a later date/time.
We will notify all customers affected by cancellation of an Event to describe our policy and to assist in rebooking experiences via Email and Telephone. We make all reasonable efforts to inform affected customers in good time, however, You accept that notifications may occur at short notice and under no circumstances are We able to accept liability for any expense incurred.
Each experience has a predicted duration time, with the majority in the region of 90 – 120 minutes. This begins at the booked session start time, not at Your actual time of arrival. The booked session start time is the time You chose when booking, or the time on Your booking confirmation email. If You choose to arrive on site earlier than Your booked session time, this will not be taken into consideration.
All attendees must attend a Driver’s Briefing. This starts 15 minutes after the session start time to allow for all session participants to sign in upon arrival and lasts approximately 30 minutes.
Due to force majeure as listed above resulting in unforeseen circumstances, some delays may occur. It is the nature of Motorsport that unexpected incidents can occur in rare circumstances. We work tirelessly to ensure a continued and well functioning experience atmosphere, with great instruction and operation within a timely manner, however we must react and occasionally pause operation for safety concerns.
If Your experience activity has not commenced (with the exception of sighting laps/training) within 135 minutes of your scheduled session start time, We may extend the concession for You to choose to rebook and attend another date without charge. This will be at Management’s discretion. We would of course implore You to stay and complete your experience, thanking you for your understanding whereby a pause is the result of an unexpected incident or force majeure outside of Drift Limits’ control.
If Your experience is a multicar experience or includes several sections of driving, the duration will be longer and can experience short waiting times; depending on the cars selected, the number of cars driven and the number of laps driven in each car. The duration of these experiences may exceed 120 minutes from your scheduled session start time. In the case of experiences driving 4+ vehicles, on multiple circuits or for many laps, we do not offer the concession of free re-booking. We will advise of a longer experience duration for larger experiences. Please check the experience duration as listed on our website.
If, due to unforeseen circumstances, there is considerable delay or an inability to complete all driving, a free rebooking of remaining driving may be offered at a manager’s discretion.
