1 to 1 Advanced Driver Training

 

Drift Limits Motorsport Academy offers an exclusive opportunity, giving just you, our fleet of cars and 3 challenging circuits to play with.

Our 1 to 1 advanced driver training is an intensive programme designed to give avid motorsport enthusiasts a proven competitive edge for all driver levels from complete novices all the way to World Formula Series. We ensure world-class instruction and have even developed training programmes for current F1 drivers.

Develop your driving with a variety of different vehicle dynamics from low powered front engined Mx-5’s to high powered mid-engined GT3 race cars on an array of different handling tracks, gradients and textures enabling you the best opportunity to learn as quickly as possible, stretching your ability to the limit and having an incredibly fun time doing so!

1:1 tuition from our renowned instructors ensures careful attention to your personal driving style, and the whole day can be tailored to your specific needs. So whether your aim is to simply improve your track driving lap times or conversely you wish to gain confidence in car control and road safety we can help. Some of our 1:1 clients compete professionally as racing drivers / drift competitions or on the film set as accredited stunt professionals where there is no margin for error and need perfect their technique in a safe controlled closed set.

Our half day 1:1 courses can be scheduled for almost any morning even at short notice; our full day courses tend to be left open specially for Tuesday’s. There will be a mixture of cars driven within your selected vehicle Tier category.

 


 

Session Duration

2 Hour Sessions

Typically booked for an 08:30 start,
our 2 hour sessions give you prime time
action with greater chance of solo circuit usage.

You’ll spend 2 hours with an instructor during your 1:1,
getting to know them, our track and our cars.

2 Hour sessions can be booked at different session times during the day,
all sessions and vehicles are subject to availability.

4 Hour Sessions

Our 4 hour sessions have two different timing options to suit you.

Arriving at 08:30, you’ll sign in with us and get prepared to head out on track at 09:00 to start your session with 2 hours on track.

Breaking at around 11am, you’ll continue on track from 12:00 until 14:00.

If you’re more of a ‘one shot intense course’ kind of person, you can really push yourself and start your session on track at 12:00, finishing at 16:00.
