Hertfordshire Drifting Full Day - Gold Experience

Drifting Experience - Full Day! Perfect your driving skills with nearly 2 hours of drive time at the wheel of a Mazda MX5.

The Hertfordshire 'Gold' drifting experience is the pinnacle of drifting lessons - a full day of sideways madness in a race-ready Mazda MX-5. You will have an impressive 38 laps of driving to hone your skills and build up your speed and confidence, and by the end of full day at the motorsports academy you should be able to quite comfortably hold and link some incredible slides. At 1.2km this is the longest drifting track in the UK, and offers participants the fastest experience around!

The day begins with some theory training on basic track driving, before you head out in a sports car for a sighting lap to get a feel for the track - then a hot lap with the professional driver at the wheel! With a senior instructor in the passenger seat throughout the remaining 38 laps, you'll be using the handbrake extensively to practise high speed drifts at sharp angles and long transitions to 3rd gear entries. You'll be taught how to link corners confidently and drift sideways on full lock around the purpose-built track - with drifting speeds up to 80mph, you're guaranteed to see some smoke from the tyres!

This is an incredible experience gift for petrol-heads and driving enthusiasts, and makes for a heart-pumping adrenaline-fuelled day that will never be forgotten.

Additional options:

Upgrade to a Porsche Cayman from £39.00

Book for a Saturday morning for £39.00

Average rating: 5 stars out of 5

Great fun

A really good day - nearly 50 laps broken into 10-15 lap sessions with time to recover/relax between. Tutors are excellent and really do try and teach you how to drift fast and transition neatly - plenty of tyres down to the carcass as evidence ! Unlike one or two other 'fast-car' events you are not treated as cattle to be ripped off. 10/10 recommended.
