Drifting is the art of controlling an out of control car, as well as a pastime for ocean-bound bits of wood. Wash up your skills with today’s Groupon: £69 for a four hour introduction to drifting at Slide School Drift Academy.


Harnessing the raw physics of speed, weight, and sheer adrenaline, the team at Slide School Drift Academy puts the theoretical to the pedal with experience days and hair-raising passenger rides. The fleet of five cars are individually kitted out as specification drift cars, with two adapted for teaching the art of the sport. The academy screeches and slides across eight training grounds in the country, and three of the cars rev their engines in UK and European drift championships.

Split into practical and theory, the experience gets going with a classroom based lesson covering handbrake skills and how to perform drifting moves such as the doughnut and figure of eight. Plenty of tea and coffee will be provided during the briefing to keep palates fuelled. Drivers can then take it in turns to put the wheels in motion during a practical session with the instructor riding shotgun for five laps on the kidney track, amounting to at least 30 minutes' drive time. Students can also strap into the passenger seat for a high speed lap around the full track with a pro, to get a taste of the championship adrenaline.
