Welcome to Drift Limits Public Drift Open Days!
As so many drift circuits and skid pans becoming increasingly harder to find, we have been pushing hard to host our own public drift/car control days.
We are delighted to now be able to invite enthusiasts and their cars to our driving facility!
Our designated circuit attracts drivers of all skill levels – it’s layout is constructed on the main runway of a WW2 bomber base, providing plenty of space to stretch the rev range in high speed slides.
Gates open at 7.30am
Morning Briefing at 8.30am
Morning Session 9.00am – 12.00pm
Lunch from 12.00pm –1.30pm
( Half day – Afternoon bookings: Arrival – 12.30pm & Briefing – 1.00pm )
Afternoon Session 1.30pm – 4.30pm
You will be split into two groups; beginner drivers, you’ll find large amounts of run-off for the majority of the track allowing you to build confidence at your own pace, you will line up in our “Korma lane”.
For the more seasoned enthusiasts out there, we have the ‘Vindaloo Lane’ which can be quite spicy! in addition to the rest of the circuit, you continue through a high speed third gear entry into a second gear decel zone with the option to test your proximity and accuracy against the wall, representing a rear clipping point.
This drift line then follows into our ‘Zen Garden’ roundabout, bonsai tree and all, to twin around right in front of the sheltered spectator area – No pressure! There will be no twinning within the Korma lane however you can switch between the two as of when you like throughout the day. If one of our marshals feels you are in the wrong group, they will advise.

Noise level NOT EXCEEDING 87dbs at 15 meters – tested as a drive-by on track continuously monitored throughout the day. Any breaches will result in the participating driver to stop driving immediately and will be asked to return to the pits and only allowed back on track if further improvements to ameliorate the noise output are met.
As of 13.06.2023 all cars attending must have a downturned exhaust tip. These can be removable but must be fitted to all cars taking part in any drift open day excluding cars that have a full OEM exhaust system fitted.
Static noise testing will be 90dbs from 0.5 meters at 45 degrees from the exit of the exhausts. (If the participating vehicle has a twin exit exhaust then the measurement will be taken from the middle of the two exits).The car must be at 3/4 throttle of the maximum rev range for the test, anyone seen to be actively misleading during the tests will be turned away on the day.
All cars will be scrutinized and noise tested to make sure they are safe and meet our regulations.
We highly advise that an OEM exhaust system should be fitted to participant’s vehicle to ensure the best possible chance of passing our scrutineering. Participants will then be invited back to return to our regularly held Drift Open events in the future without the fear of rejection (a standard Nissan 350z is the benchmark limit for approval).
The drift circuit will be wetted at all times to ensure our noise regulations are met and no tyre squeal is emitted.
Cars must have all body panels mounted securely at the beginning of the event including doors, wings, bonnet, boot lid, quarter panels, and bumpers.
Tow hooks are to be mounted front and rear to the participating vehicles.
