Drift Open Day
Welcome to Drift Limits Public Drift Open Days!
Next Date: 27th May 2022
As so many drift circuits are increasingly getting harder to find, we have been pushing hard to host our own Public Drift Days.
We are delighted to now be able to invite drifters and their cars to our driving facility!
Our Drift 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 – 3rd gear drifts. For amateur drivers you’ll find large amounts of runoff for the majority of the track providing the confidence you need to start shredding.
For the more seasoned drift veterans out there, we have the ‘Vindaloo Lane’ over the amateur ‘Korma Lane’ which can be quite spicy! It consists of a high speed third gear entry into a second gear decel – with the aim to run the drift car along our ‘Soft Wall’ – a floating foam section marked in red represents the rear clipping point! Ideal for practicing precision drifting with far less consequences than hitting the solid concrete wall closely behind it. This drift line then follows onto a custom built ‘Zen Garden’ roundabout to twin around right in front of the sheltered spectator area – No pressure!
If you are confident your car will meet our regulations we would love to invite you to apply to our next Drift Open event on Friday 27th of May.

Once through the Drift limits main entrance, please keep right and follow the signs for “Customer Parking”. Once you reach the customer parking area please follow the instructions of the Marshall.
Our own in-house media team will capture the event.
Drivers are welcome to bring their own recording equipment which must be fixed inside or outside the vehicle as long as they are fastened securely – subject to scrutineering.
No Personnel will be permitted on the circuit unless authorised or employed by Drift Limits.
Please bring your own tyres if you want them changed.
£7 per tyre change (including free disposal)
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.
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).
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.
A handheld fire extinguisher (minimum size 1kg) mounted within reach of the driver is not required but advised.
All window glass must be present or replaced with a shatterproof Lexan or similar material with the exception of the windscreen. This must be OEM laminated glass. All windows must remain closed when on track.
The vehicle battery must be fitted securely.
All vehicles must have functioning brake lights.
Only steel wheel nuts/bolts are permitted. Lightweight aluminium wheel nuts/bolts are not permitted.
All drivers who intend on driving at the event must:
Be 18 years of age or older with a full driving license, or;
15 -18 years of age must have a competition license from either BDC, Drift Cup, IDC or Drift Masters DMEC.
Drivers and passengers must always wear a helmet when on track. Full or open face motorsport-specific helmets are required. Motocross-style helmets are not permitted.
Any driver wishing to take passengers must ensure their passenger seat is also OEM standard seats and seatbelts OR a fixed back or recliner bucket seat with a minimum of a 4-point harness.
The cost for double-driving is £30 extra Half Day and £50 extra Full Day. Both drivers may only drive the car they have entered, not separate cars.
Note: Drift Limits driver entry passes cannot be refunded and as such, there is a no refund policy. By purchasing a pass for this event, you are agreeing to this policy.
You CANNOT purchase multiple passes with the intention of selling them on. Doing so will result in your pass being cancelled without refund.
You MUST ensure BOTH the driver and the car being driven abide by the rules above, which must be met in order to drive at this event. Failure to do so will result in the named driver not being allowed on track, with no chance of refund.
