I've not been here for a while and was considering having a crack at it
Did you ever try one and what was it like?
I’m considering seeing what it’s like, mainly as a learning experience
Never driven it, but used to go with mates many years ago, probably 10 years ago now!
Perfect place to learn to drift really, very little stuff to hit and different tracks depending on your bottle!
Thanks Graham - don’t know if it’s the kind of thing where you can turn up as almost a complete beginner? Plus I assume you need to take some spare rear tyres with you?
It's ideal as a beginner, I did my first drift day there. If you are in something expensive and a beginner then there's play pens with enough space to practise donuts, figure 8's, kidney shapes etc for you to go in on your own. If you are a bit more experienced then there's a big track there which is a decent layout and alot of fun, but you won't be on your own on that part so that's down to you to decide, I never had any dramas but then I wasn't in anything I was worried about scratching so that helped
I went on one (can't remember the name of the company)...really really enjoyed it.
They provided the car and a ride along instructor.
Massive fun, started to get the hang of it towards the end.
Day ended with a competition to hand brake turn parallel park the car into a tight space...weirdly I was good at that!
Sounds like exactly what I’m looking for...
Can’t say I like the idea of hitting a wall but my car’s for having fun with so equally that’s not going to stop me!
For bringing your own car do you need to take a few sets of more suitable tyres with you? Doubt my AD08Rs are the best choice...
Yeah you will need spare tyres. I'd given up on part worns and was just buying new budgets as they last alot longer and don't fall apart anywhere near as bad, if you was just in the play pens then a new pair last surprisingly long but once you are on the big track you might start to need more. They always used to have a tyre van there with part worns, but pot luck what sizes they have on the day
100% need tyres & rear wheels or you can pay to get them changed there. If you want them changed on site be warned they are used to **** wheels and don't have to worry about the paint etc so don't take any nice wheels
I'd be interested in this - do you have any more info or a website I can look at?
