Frequently Asked Questions
How much driving time do you actually get?
Every 10 minutes you will be driving. Your group has a drift car and instructor. Everyone gets 1-2 laps depending on spins and skill level. When you then swap over with the next driver we normally find by the time you calm down by the buzz of your run and tell your friends and stop laughing, it usually your turn again.
Is this drift day a shared track day also?
We have the track to ourselves for this corporate event. Also Drift cars are only on hand to offer passenger rides FOC with some of our professional drivers/instructors.
Vehicle reliability and spares on the day?
In the event of a car failure or accident we bring on the spares!! But there is not an endless supply of spare cars!
Driver tuition for less skilled people
In the case of a driver having too much ‘red-mist’. We will have to give them stationary lessons and one-one training until we feel they have calmed down. Then they will proceed back on to the track for a reappraisal and more drifting.

Yes the full price will include tires, fuel and any other parts that need for maintenance and upkeep of the cars through the day.
