Drift School is a chance to get hands-on tutoring by experienced Drift drivers, and track time to practice newly gained skills.
Tutors will guide you through what is required as you go, providing tips and advice. They may come for a ride with you to help further or if you wish they can drive your car for you to show you how its done.
The new format for 2018 Drift Schools:
Beginner morning events - 9am - 12pm
-A Track Version 1 used. 2nd gear for most cars, easier for beginners.
-Small groups alternating on track, cars one at a time.
-Tutors assisting with advice and driving tips.
-Run for 2 hours before selected Have a Go Days.
-For drivers who have done a school or 2 but want some more help from experienced drivers and a bit of separation from other cars.
-Same track used as the Have a Go Day.
No passengers other than approved tutors
