Driver Club – Drift King Collection
From: £179.00 inc VAT
Drifting has been on the periphery of mainstream Motorsport for the last ten years, popularised initially through internet videos of the skilful art which originated in Japan, eventually exploding into pop culture with the likes of the underground legend known as the ‘Drift King’ Keiichi Tsuchiya and his notorious Toyota AE86 Trueno as in the anime series ‘Initial D’.
The big secret is, it looks far more difficult than it actually is! Whilst the learning curve is steep, our venue with a dedicated drift track and specialist (completely unhinged) instructors is the perfect place to take your car control to the next level. We have proven time and time again that drifting experiences are our greatest asset, simply put, nobody else does it as well as we do.
The three different cars you will be driving have proven drift ability: The entry level MX5 is lightweight, nimble and precise – the short wheelbase gives the snappy characteristics of the fabled Toyota AE86, the rev-happy low powered engines seem to long for red line abuse.
After completing Stage 1 in the MX5, Step up to Stage 2 for your next 8 drifting laps in the more powerful, more aggressive Nissan 350z. A 3.5 litre V6 has made this the weapon of choice in drifting, having been used competitively across the globe – a popular choice for Formula D and D1 Drift Championships.
Finishing on the final stage in the BMW E90 for your final 8 drifting laps, to put all that you have learnt together across the session. The back-to-back driving progression across all three cars should cement your skills and complete your transformation from drift wannabe to drifter and help build an understanding of three very different handling cars.
Take part in the optional ‘Drift Trophy Challenge’ on the last 2 laps where you will be assessed on consistency, driver control and clipping points to demonstrate the perfect drift lap
