Drifting - the best driving experience ever?

In our humble opinion, a drifting experience is the most fun you can have in a performance car. Driving endless circuits around a race track is thrilling in itself, as it rally driving, but nothing beats a bit of drift driving! Maybe it’s because you need to show control and accuracy, or maybe it’s because it just looks so totally cool, but one drift session and we’re hooked.

As you might suspect, seeing a professional drifter perform some nice smooth moves makes it look all rather easier. But of course, it’s not. When you start to learn how to drift you might think getting the co-ordination and sequence of throttle and clutch right is nigh on impossible. However, with most students on these courses something suddenly clicks and it all falls into place so you can get that perfect slide on.

Before you take on the challenge, have a look at what happened when our very own Tom had a drifting lesson from pro driver Rich Newton!

Drifting is all about timing, balance and control. As you’re sitting next to your instructor on your lesson you will be constantly hit with calls for ‘Full gas, off the gas. Back on, full lock!’ which sounds quite full on and it IS full on. You are sure to find yourself spinning out a few times and maybe even stalling as you try and perfect your drift, but practice makes perfect as they say and by the end of your experience you’re sure to be busting smooth moves in your motor. 

Learn the three types of drift

 

In fact, on these lessons you’ll learn that there are actually three types of drift. There’s the brake, the handbrake and the dynamic drift. On some of the longer courses offered you might get to try the full trio of drifts. And if you succeed in pulling off the dynamic drift (where you get into a drift and keep the car moving forward as you slide) you are sure to get a high five from your instructor. It’s all about hitting that sweet spot where the car is perfectly balanced using throttle and steering only - not a brake or handbrake needed for this one.

And drifting is no marginal motorsport. It may have started off as a form of street racing (and subsequently glamourised in the Fast and Furious films) but drifting is a sport in its own right, It has a massive following in Japan, where the drifters are heroes and the cars are as glitzy and gleaming as you can get. Even in the UK there are drift championships that attract some very skilled drivers indeed and makes for a superb spectacle to watch. Come and learn to drift with Into The Blue.
