Overview

If you're mad about drifting and looking to refine and improve your skills, this 24-lap crash course will have you taking corners like a professional in no time. You’ll start with briefing session where your instructor will go through the skills and techniques needed to drift, turn and skid with style around the track. Then it’s out to the car to start the real action. Awaiting you is a specially modified Mazda MK2 MX5 1.8S with safety roll cages and suspension set-up. Maybe you'll fancy something a bit racier, in which case you can upgrade to the Nissan 350Z! Following three sighting laps and a drift hot lap, you’ll get behind the wheel where your instructor will take you through all the basics, like linking drifts in transition. You'll master the dynamics of initiating, holding and exiting a slide. Soon enough you'll be able to start linking corners like a pro and initiating early with hand brake entries. Once you feel you have mastered the basics, you'll move on to the full circuit to drift - the ultimate thrill!

  • Learn how to drift at speeds of up to 80mph sideways at the UK’s fastest dedicated drifting experience track
  • Your experience starts with a briefing session to learn the techniques and skills needed out on the track
  • Three sighting laps and one drift hot lap with your instructor

Amazing fun!!

The bronze drifting experience at Drift Limits was such great fun. The staff and instructors were excellent, teaching the skills really well and really allowing the driver to push it to their limits. I only wish I had booked more sessions.

Clear, concise learning and lots of fun
09 September 2017
I wanted someone to teach me the basics of drifting and that is exactly what I got. Simple and memorable instructions from the teacher that I could repeat to myself whilst driving. He explained every time what went wrong and right. A great introduction was given, with a passenger ride in the car so you get used to the feeling of drifting, which is by far the strangest part of it all coming from a driver who has never tried it before. Great fun, got me fired up to go again!

Best motor sport experience ever
15 May 2017
I have been lucky enough to have been on many different driving experiences and this is by far the best. Great staff who are enthusiastic, encouraging and informative, instruct you throughout the day and teach you drift while having fun and not being over restrictive with the process. Fantastic day out for any motor sport enthusiast, I would recommend it to all my friends

I hoped for better
10 February 2017
Don't get me wrong, going sideways is fun but there must be more enthusiastic venues with better cars, a better view of what is going and more track time. Also, I know this exercise is wasteful of rubber but the stock tyres were so worn I delaminated a tyre a lap and then we would sit doing nothing while the tyre was changed.

Well worth the visit
25 May 2016
I got this for my husband & he loved it. The lads that run Drift limits are very relaxed & put you at ease straight away. When you arrive it is made clear to you that you can tailor the day to suit your needs, extra laps, change/upgrade cars, it's all made so easy for you, I even got a couple of 'hot laps' just to see what my husband was beaming about, well worth it!!

Here's a more accurate description. Gold Drifting
21 May 2016
Don't get me wrong I had a good day doing the Gold Drifting. I just felt the description of the event before hand wasn't accurate. So feel it only fair people get a more accurate review of what you actually get on the Gold Drifting event. Here's what the advert says vs what actually happens: ".....you progress to learning handbrake turns. After getting to grips with losing traction you'll master donuts using power over steer." Never even touch the handbrake, let alone learn hand brake turns. Never did a donut or had any instruction on how to do them.. "Before you get out onto the track, your dedicated and very experienced instructor will conduct an in-depth classroom theory session to go through all of the techniques and skills you will be learning" Not really. In the class room the instructor tells everyone on ALL events things to look out for. No "in-depth" theory. Just "take a wide line". All very brief and certainly not in-depth and didn't teach me anything technique wise. I was expecting a lot more detail. "After a break for lunch" No. You get 3 sessions in the MX5 and 1 in the M3. Breaks in between mean going to their shop for a bottle of water. Or your car. Nothing much else to do, as you can't see the tracks. Well a small section of the main track can be seen. There is the odd car to look at parked up. Certainly no "lunch" unless you brought some. "After a break for lunch you'll familiarise yourself with weight transfer dynamics on a fast corner - including breaking traction with the Scandinavian flick and lift-off over steer". No mention of these methods or instruction on this. Just "turn in sharp and hit the throttle". "Your full day experience also includes 70 lap high-speed circuit session with additional laps in a M3" Not a full day More half day. I arrived a 1:30pm, as requested. Waited 40mins to hear the briefing, which was brief, as mentioned. A bit of talk on photos and videos you can buy etc. Plus upgrades of car. Then it was another 20mins wait to get into a car. So was driving by 2:30pm. 20mins of driving and max. 15 laps in the Mx-5 (certainly not high speed, but that was ok), then 5-10mins break. Repeat this total of 3 times. Then into BMW E46 M3 for 5 laps. So in total maximum of 45laps, not 70! Plus the 5 in the M3. So I felt a bit short changed! I didn't count the laps, but they talked of "10-15 laps and we'll come in for a break". "-as well as an adrenaline-pumping passenger hot lap" "Then let your instructor show you how it’s done, with an awesome white knuckle passenger ride!" No, Hot laps had to be paid for! Which was a shame, as it would have been useful to see how the experts do it. After the event is over, you can then pay for the photos and video if required. So in short. No real technique training in the class room. Maximum of 45 laps in Mx5 and 5 in M3. Some limited advice from the instructor in the car. All in all I was there from 1:30pm to 6:20pm. So nearly 5hrs. Mostly waiting around. Total time of the event. (4 sessions and 3 breaks) 1hr 45mins). Total driving time approx 45mins in Mx5. 5mins in M3. So go with this knowledge and have a great half day. Just don't expect to learn too much. More of a "here's a car, have a go and see if you can get it to drift". And certainly don't think you'll come away being able to drift or have learned any new advanced techniques.

Great fun and could become addictive
02 May 2016
Booked the Bronze drifting experience (though everything since has said platinum in error) for a fun experience with a couple of friends. As advised at the briefing, did a couple of laps with an instructor driving to start off and that was well worth doing to give an idea as to what we were trying to achieve. Spent the whole experience with a grin on my face a mile wide, which says it all, and having only booked the bronze it was over far too quickly!
