Half Day Drift Experience – Anytime

Take the helm of one of our drift prepared 350z’s with your own instructor in the passenger seat. They will teach you the essential techniques to go sideways and let those rear wheels spin. Fancy a go at this new and obscure motorsport? Our instructors will show you techniques so you can feel at ease while you power slide in a controlled environment.
