The Main Event

A driving experience close to London, participate in some drifting to make life more enjoyable! Learn how to slide a car swiftly, precisely, and skilfully to participate in the motorsport that is sweeping the globe!

All abilities are invited and the day will start on a track specifically designed for drifting with qualified instructors who will encourage various sideways motions in the cars.

This drifting experience session contains a variety of difficult curves and a sequence of "Zen Garden Roundabouts" with slow and fast corners and lots of run-off to spin safely! Learn all you need to know about this fun activity and see which car can handle your drifts in this race of the drifting vehicles.

The first of the cars you’ll experience will be the Nissan 350Z. The 350z has evolved into many drift enthusiasts' ideal vehicle after appearing in films like Tokyo Drift.

Especially on a wet track, their tremendously strong 3.5l v6 makes starting a slide quite simple, making you feel like a real pro. You can sustain power at lower revs while still completely tearing the rear wheels around the track. The 350z increased power and larger wheel base enables you to learn the fundamentals of holding an attractive-looking drift.

Next up is the BMW with a whopping 550NM of torque, the custom-mapped hybrid turbo-powered BMW Drift Taxi makes it simple to spin up the rear wheels and start the drift. The ideal car to learn how to drift is one with a long wheelbase chassis, which helps the driver shift from slide lock to lock. Having a huge selection of add-on improvements and alterations, it has been utilised in competitions all over the world.

This experience includes:

30 Minute Introductory Briefing: Covering drift lines, throttle / braking technique and track day safety etiquette.

4 x Sighting Laps including 1 fully sideways high speed passenger lap in a BMW E90 Drift Taxi.

Run the wall and drift around the ultimate street derived course featuring a series of Japanese Zen Garden Roundabouts

12, 20 or 36 x drift laps in the BMW E90 Drift Taxi

12,20 or 36  x drift laps in the Nissan 350z

Option to stay in your preferred drift car for the entire duration of the experience.

Take part in the optional ‘Drift Trophy Challenge’. One winner every month. 1 Trophy every year.

What about Insurance?

The centres contracted with us hold public liability insurance. We also hold contingency liability cover.

Some operators require customers to complete an indemnity/damage waiver form prior to taking the experience. This may state the driver is liable for a fixed amount of costs should they damage the vehicle whilst driving. Most operators are able to provide additional insurance to cover this at a small additional fee, payable on site. The purchase of this is optional and is in addition to the public liability insurance held by all venues. The full details of any indemnity or damage waiver and additional insurance will be provided by the activity operator. WonderDays is unable to advise or comment on the content or suitability of any such waiver or additional insurance.
