How much did it cost and how long did you have driving/drifting? I was looking into some a while back but never got round to doing it

Santa Pod host drift days regularly. There are proper areas for people who know what they're doing, plus beginner areas where you can practice. All in your own car, for 70.

A great idea and if after a few goes I decided to buy a cheap drift car then definitely a yes but as mentioned above I wouldn't wanna be using the Supra to start

Fair point. I expect there's loads of space for newbies though. I may go with a mate who drifts his supra, give the event a recky.

It's normall price is about 150 and they teach u the basics donuts figure eights and a slalom but you can do full days for 600 and that's 6hours track time and u can share that with 1 or 2 friends aswell ��
