Drift Training Day For Non Drifters Sandown 17th Jan 2009

If you’ve always wanted to have a go at drifting on the circuit, but didn’t want to attend a fully blown drift day, then we have a course that will suit you perfectly.

To be conducted at Sandown on 17th January 2009, this day is aimed at drivers who want to have a lot of fun and learn plenty about drifting from Australia's best professional drifters including Adam Newton and Luke Fink.
The exercises will be conducted on wet roads to keep the speeds down and minimize wear and tear on your car.
The cost for this course is $195.00 including lunch and refreshments.
We’re taking bookings now, so if you’d like to attend give us a call on 1300 652 693

This was a brilliant day out, thanks kev for organising. I had an absolute blast throwing the 1er around and will be there at the next one for sure.

Skid pan day would be great as well, just needed more time on the pan yesterday to practice that throttle control. Got it in the end, but geez an LSD would've helped.

Had a camera failure on the 1st exercises, but here's a couple of videos thanks to jrobbo from detail addiction. Totally cooked the 2nd of the power oversteer exercises when I had the camera on though, which is a shame as it was my worse run....
