ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Bronze Taster Drifting Experience with Hot Lap

This drifting lesson in Hertfordshire near London is a short introductory session of advanced driving and drifting.

This Hertfordshire taster drifting experience is a superb baptism of fire into one of the coolest driving styles there is - the amazing art of drifting. The track in Hemel Hempstead is unrivalled, and offers the fastest public drifting experience in the UK. At 1.2km, it's also the longest track available, making it a cut above the rest!

You will start off the drifting lesson by taking two sighting laps in a track prepared sports car, before driving a powerful Mazda MX-5 to learn powersliding and oversteer, manipulating the weight of the car to initiate a slide, and feint braking. Once you're confident in your abilities, you'll learn how to break traction and practise slide balance, seeing some serious smoke coming from the back tyres! The final challenge is power sliding round a sweeping curve at full lock, which is sure to take your breath away. Drivers are encouraged to reach third gear, and link corners together with entry speeds up to 80mph. To finish, you'll get a high-speed hot lap from the instructor!

This 11-lap taster drifting session is perfect for getting to grips with the skills and techniques involved, and makes a great introduction for those looking to improve their knowledge or take up a new hobby. A wonderful gift for motor enthusiasts, this is one driving experience you'll remember for a lifetime!

Drifting

I had never tried to drift a vehicle before. The instructor explained the theory and demonstrated how to carry it out. We then proceeded to spend what I felt was a long time having some fun around the track. Great day and great value. I've literally been drifting my own car all around my estate ever since:)

-

Fantastic event! The staff were very friendly and patient even with a complete newbie to drifting. Most of the training was done in-car, so there was minimal time off the track. Excellent value for money and great fun. I'm very tempted to do one of their full drift days.
