Drift Open Day Bookings - Drift Limits

PUBLIC DRIFT OPEN DAYS

We are proud to host public drift / car control track days for the car community. Welcoming driving enthusiasts of all abilities from beginners to professionals to drive their own cars at our London Motorsport Academy. Our drift track ‘Mephis’ features a street inspired course with three ‘Zen Garden’ roundabouts and lots of open space for getting it wrong! The array of tight and technical 2nd gear sections is perfect for sustained twinning while the faster 3rd and 4th gear shallow bends are perfect for letting you stretch the rev range in dramatic high speed slides.

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 known as the ‘Hero Line’ with the option to test your proximity and ‘run the wall’. We’re nice, so we have developed 6 special soft clipping balls which hang parallel to the concrete wall for those who are brave enough to practice soft clipping points with less risk of totalling your car 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.

We host Drift Open events usually once a month.
