What Can I Expect

Drifting in the legendary Nissan 350Z and a beefed up BMW 330 too! All sessions take place on a specially created drift circuit at Bovingdon, which boasts a perfect blend of long, sweeping corners and technical flick entries too. 

The 350z was Takaszhi's, the Japanese DK's (that's Drift King) weapon of choice in Fast & Furious's Tokyo Drift. The BMW is a serious drift contender too. With its custom-mapped turbo setup, you'll be able to get this big Beemer sliding at angles you'd think are impossible.

Get it wrong and you'll be stalling and spinning all over the shop, but that's why you're at Bovingdon. With track-prepped 350Zs and 330s, and equally well-prepared instructors, you're in excellent hands. On Each one of these experiences you will soon learn the basics. If you go for more seat time, you'll learn more. It's as simple as that.

All packages feature three sighting laps with an instructor at the helm, so you can see the lay of the land. Then there's a high-speed passenger ride too, where your drifting guru will be taking you and the BMW Drift Taxi on a high-speed lap made up of entirely linked drift turns. Impressive.

The essence of these sessions is sharing the drift buzz with you. The first time you get the hang of power-overs you'll be whooping for joy. As you start to feel how both cars ride, you can balance the throttle through the slide and begin to nail those flicks. It takes concentration, but it's an amazing feeling, totally exhilarating and pretty addictive too.

If you go for the maximum laps package you can really nail this drifting game. You'll come in at ever more extreme angles and faster speeds, with the ultimate aim of linking several bends together on full opposite lock, to pull off a classic and very styled out drift run.

Excellent coaching from drift pros. Top-notch on site facilities. A track that's ideal for learning and progressing -  and two of the best modern drift cars for the job. This is why we think you'll love BMW and Nissan 350z drifting with this lot!
